In a clearing

Ice dreaming

~

In a clearing

the ice covered pond

reflects the cool sun’s glare

~

sleeping   dreaming   waking

The green light at the bottom of the pond is kept on

~

The writings in books

are like skates on the pond

Cutting figures in the ice

while staying

on the surface of dreams

~

 Mermaids come as night falls

 cutting holes

from the bottom of the ice

 singing their siren songs

 to awaken the sleeping minutes

of hearts and minds

keeping time

~

While hurrying clouds congregate

rebellious against the moon

and I sit here alone

in dark wonder

watching the glow

from the warming fire

~

The bright moon

My breath in the air

All I hear is stillness

 ~

A living journal,  my poems are weaving and circling around themselves…puzzles unwinding in a clearing…a dialogue now in waves more than starts and fits, editing me….

    • Ah…how interesting, Steven. 🙂 I rummage around in my own internal references when I write, so I very much enjoyed a tour through the pre Raphaelites and their offspring this morning. Thank you for this.
