In the light of the waxing moon,
a fiddler plays
a song of aching beauty
his notes fall like stars, drenching everything
in their afterglow, an evanescent flash,
each phrase asking if, each refrain a soaring why
in counterpoint to moon rhythm
each a part of the symphony,
of star-blossoms blooming time and again
It’s been a crazy week and a crazy weekend with some computer issues. Hopefully everything is resolved. This is my message from the Oracle that I started early yesterday morning. I’m sorry I’m so behind in commenting!

I love “the symphony, / of always”!
Thank you very much, Liz. 🙂
You’re welcome, Merril.
It is a delight to read you.
Hugs from afar.
Thank you very much!
We all had asking. Once again, yours seems like mine, turned to reflect a slightly different angle. I especially like the notes falling like stars. (K)
Thank you very much, Kerfe. The Oracle does like ask, doesn’t she? I suppose the universe is filled with questions/
For me, the metaphors and the imagery are very strong with this poem. Thumbs up, Merril! ….. and good luck with the computer issues. Be patient!
Thank you so much, Frank!

Lovely Merril. Love the art work too – shades of Van Gogh ‘starry night’.
Thank you very much, Susan!
As soon as I saw this painting in the reader I knew we were in for a treat from you. And so it come to pass with such a lovely poem. A very well placed if. You know I sympathise with your computer issues.
What a lovely comment. Thank you so much, Derrick! 💙
This is lovely. Your stars are always so gentle.
We all had the ‘ask’ this week, and the questions are always similar.
I had big computer issues too, Microsoft being weird and a couple of days when we kept losing power. And family visits that get me wound up (spending too long in the kitchen).
This is wonderful.
Thank you so much, Ken. I’m pleased you think so!
This is so lovely Merril!
Thank you very much, Rene!
