The Liquidity of Verse

fine mist of words
colored by grammatical powdering
settle upon line and space
neither powder nor liquid
a sense of wonderment
aligns its arc with the verve of enlightenment
on the eve of nature’s unseen adventure
pilgrim
lost in the stars of eyes
I stand with the whispers
of promise at my back
and the shine of penciled mist
before me

  6. Oy this was beautiful - esp this:

    I stand with the whispers
    of promise at my back
    and the shine of penciled mist
    before me

    Loved it.

    I'm glad you're back, was starting to wonder if all was well with you. Good to see you.

  10. I get the feeling of being in the anteroom of creation..." a sense of wonderment /aligns its arc with the verve of enlightenment." Beautiful line in a beautiful poem.
