Waiting

Waiting

Odilon Redon, The Muse on Pegasus

On a long wander, cold-breathed,
I think every spring’s a poet born
as from rain a rose—
yet, if we recall the red petals’ fall

in sun turns and moon cycles,
and after dusk’s berry-glow and bird-light flickers,
the deep song of ancient souls
carried on wind-fiddles–

now wait for light whispers
and the caramel breath of dawn,
a honeyed smile that lingers on treetops
and beneath, the lichen rocks
and moss blankets,

seeds rest,
knowing when to bloom.

My poem from the Magnetic Poetry Oracle. It’s cold here today.

  1. Oh my goodness, Merril. This is utterly beautiful. What a perfect joining of you and the Oracle this morn.
    It’s ridiculously cold here, too (-11F) -28C…

  2. Wonderful imagery in your poem Merril. I love this return of spring image…
    now wait for light whispers
    and the caramel breath of dawn,
    a honeyed smile that lingers on treetops
