A Story of Dreams and Wonder

512px-Reflection,_1900-1905 (1)

Reflection, Odilon Redon

 

Almost-color in the clouds–

dark ghosts–that blush-tipped feathers

wing away, the dreams that linger

 

~in the after-winds of time~

 

we watch the fire-heart of the sky

dazzle us with flower-flames–

singing songs of a thousand ifs

 

~in a shimmering symphony~

 

the heavens dance,

giant birds soar, their iridescent splendor a-flight,

traveling home, bright jewels in the night.

 

A double puente, which probably isn’t a form, from my Saturday morning collaboration with the Oracle. I’ve been having a hard time focusing the last couple of days, so I’m taking it.Β  And Redon, of course.

  1. I like the shape of the double puente, Merril, and the emphasis on the isolated lines, and love the lines:
    ‘we watch the fire-heart of the sky
    dazzle us with flower-flames–
    singing songs of a thousand ifs’.

    • Thank you very much, Kim. I appreciate your close reading.
      I was going to make the poem not really a puente, but the Oracle seemed to insist I do it this way. πŸ™‚
