A story laced in starlit thread

A story laced in starlit thread

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

The illuminations

"






































*

Star

Severed

Torn in two

The illuminations

Now housed in flesh

Wandering over endless ages

One aroused as a dark dragon’s whisper

The other an awakening woman with woven wings

And both endlessly seeking the other’s light

Both needing to find their way home

In timeless echoes their radiance

Now hunts halcyon days

Lilting movements

Lissome sighs

Converging

Fusing

Star

I was clicking down your pages of postings, trying to find one I hadn't yet reviewed . . . noticed along the way, how your poetry & the artwork you select, all of it has a very strong point of view, when taken together. This is something most poets never attain. I very much enjoy all of your artful thoughts stated with graceful imagery & imagination. The title of this one really caught my attention & sent my mind wandering, thinking about finding my own starlit threads! *smile* Fondly, Margie

I love how creative you got with making the whole poem look like words encased in a star. I can only imagine the amount of effort you had to put into making this poem, coming up with the shape and yet housing such a delicately intimate yet powerful poem was truly amazing... I LOVE IT!!!

I appreciate you coming by so much, dear Sue! May such light always flow through you. :)
Such a finely formatted poem. For me, Its lay-out suggests a gradual increase of affection leading to a passionate love then, calms into intimate friendship. In other words, the poem gently slip and slides through history then settle into an eternal place of beauty.
