The night shall bear witness to said and unsaid




If the core of my life stays centered in flame
I'll open what give thee
to burn
just the same
and turn not away
from the pruning of heat
in the place where soft slumber sifts wild through my sleep

hold not the dreamer
to manner or verse
who forgot to ask morning w'ere  blessing or curse


come boldly entangled
in layers
of red
the night shall bear witness
to said and unsaid




oh never grow weary of brilliance and fire
in the thinly veiled strength of a woman's desire



what passion plays opposite long to a fool?
none I, said the girl in a puddle of moon


lit sun and nights of fragile bliss
when puddles play opposite long to a kiss...


She cast forth her petalsin pools of blue stars


awakening Jupiter, Neptune and Mars
unfolding and tumbling her own to possess
I think the most lovely of words must be
yes

 I'll just be here under my Easter bonnet, embarking on another adventure during Easter vacation.
I will be back Monday May 2, 2011. In the meantime, enjoy Poetry Week on Mimi Writes.

Excellent pairing of words and images. I particularly like the phrase "pruning of heat". Very evocative.

I’m happy to hear that it’s poetry week
I will look in here to seek
The pleasure that I hope to find
From all of your words and rhyme!

(PS: Those lovely photo's remind me of the paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe on whom I am preparing a future blog.)
