Diamond days

The Oracle sent me anniversary wishes. Not the diamond one yet, but our wedding anniversary nonetheless. Happy us ๐Ÿ™‚


This diamond day glitters with new sun

exploding in dew drops

to the chanting of the birds

dreams dreamed by moonlight

love in the rain

and songs in the shadows

swell like storms of joy


you whisper

come with me the ship is waiting


sailing through nights and days

(like Mad Max)

fast and blue with light and life

yet no rocks loom to rip and tear

only the majestic sun

that plays on moving water

with silver tongue.

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. Congratulations- enjoy the day . I just looked exphrastic – might be tempted to write about Stonehenge from a painting . Tried one example this morning and then got drawn to a scandi email and thoughts wandered to scandi haiku . Love these early mornings writing – thankyou for yours x

  2. I’m happy the Oracle gave you a beautiful message full of wonderful imagery for your anniversary! Love the sun exploding in dew drops–beautiful diamonds. I hope you have a wonderful day!

    1. Thank you! It’s finally warming up a little. We picnicked under a plum tree and for once Finbar lay down on a blanket and didn’t make a fuss. He’s getting old ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. You won’t be surprised to know that I almost wrote, “maybe you can have a picnic” today. I’m serious. So, great minds! I’m glad you did. I’m sorry that Finbar is getting old, but I’m glad he didn’t make a fuss. He probably knew it was your anniversary.

      2. Not surprised in the least ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a picnic table set up by the hedge on the west side and hardly ever use it because it’s so far away…
        I tied Finbar up just in case anyone walked past. Nobody did, and I think he would have barked but not tried to run after them. Too far, too warm and too much like hard work.
