Degrees of Luminosity

Odilon Redon, “Ophelia”

Degrees of Luminosity

Sea-sun summers,
recall the light in falling petals

never smooth, memory or journey,
a blink,
unlike moon-time,
though maybe as rocky,

haunted by caramel sky and ghost embraces,
the what if of every storm
that also brings rain-scent–

and in the whisper of water,
the bloom of dreams,

never linear, born in blue,
breeze-swept through aeons
in endless orbits.

My poem from the Oracle.
This is a busy day in a busy week in the midst of Poetry Month. We’ll be hosting our family Passover dinner here tonight. I’ll catch up with comments and reading posts tomorrow.

  1. I don’t know what I love more – your introduction of Redon to me or the beautiful poetry that you write that go with these images. Happy Pesach!
