Lake water and night oceans

Saturday magnetic poems from the fridge magnet oracle.

 

Smooth lake water,Screen Shot 2017-07-22 at 12.14.22

crushed blue of the sky,

shines in the early light.

Shadows sleep,

waiting for a storm wind

to whip the purple sea,

rock-pounding red,

sprayed with diamonds,

or pale rose petals.

 

I dance to the rhythmScreen Shot 2017-07-22 at 14.25.44

of blue star-fire,

leap with silver fish

in the vast night ocean,

make music

from black holes in the universe.

Glass god lies broken

at my flowered feet.

 

Laugh with meScreen Shot 2017-07-22 at 14.39.33 and be my love,

say soft music in your smile,

dream beside me

on soaring wings,

dance through the sky

to touch the stars.

 

 

Can the lake bloom bright againScreen Shot 2017-07-22 at 15.11.09

and grass grow sweet and green,

deep-rooted seeds blossom,

wild vines climb,

thick and lush as rosy fruit,

or will the long night fall?

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. This is so beautiful:

    “waiting for a storm wind
    to whip the purple sea,
    rock-pounding red,
    sprayed with diamonds,
    or pale rose petals”

    Nice: “make music / from black holes”

    I like: “Glass god lies broken / at my flowered feet.”

  2. running of an errand, the Oracles words bouncing about – seeming to speaking the universe is a multitudes of expressions, phenomenons, experiences, the yin and yang and all the in-between so we might as well laugh and dance.
