Muse of magnetia

In The Time Of Flood & Beauty

she swims
through spring shadow
delirious
yet
blue as milklight
a goddess
in bitter worship
beneath the ache

of water

above you
the delicate woman

bares
her black breast
of power

vision falls
like

a summer gown

I love this. There's so much in what isn't said.

I feel like I've stumbled into a treasure house - there are too many beautiful lines/passages/images for me to pull out favorites.

Truly stunning.

I hope there's more to come.

Joni: There was more, but I forgot to take it out of the freezer to thaw. ;-)

Billie: A most hearty welcome to the Drachenhouse. Please visit as often as you wish and yes, there is more to come.

Gina: Thank you, however, I must confess--they are not my words. But I did arrange them like so many magnetic blocks.

My friend Cindy could not for the life of her get this little poem. She had to call me to explain what it was about. I say this because she did not get what I had alluded to in my remark to Gina above, perhaps too subtly, and in the photo of the refrigerator with something etched in the barren white upper portion of the door, that this was formed from a magnetic poetry word set. Just thought I'd make that clearer.
