Dripping Diamonds

Dripping Diamonds

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin

Dripping diamonds

 

Oh the bliss, of a campfire late at night!

Warm, welcoming; the flames glow, orange and lovely.

Dear husband built the fire, my soul basks

 amidst love’s warm light.

Our love matches ebony- night- reality.

Late and later, comes the moon, reflecting

 orb fire bright.

All around the forest glows as if cast in molten glass.

Late night trees, now drenched,

 in dripping diamonds of moonlight!

Every leaf, branch and twig of Douglas Fir Grove

Simply bestows, Luminescent Moon’s power.

It pierces through each leaf like a living lens

 capturing the magic.

Late and later; all becomes hushed.  So still!

To bask in silver bright shining is my privilege.

Dear Husband Timothy off to sleep.

 This night my heart is comforted.

I rejoice in this precious time of solitude.  Such peace!

My soul inhales quiet, sweet stillness.

Last glowing embers remain and still reveal beauty.

Happy I am to sleepily sit in my place

 of sweetness and light.

Thank you Lord. 

 For your precious moon does rule the night.

Your beautiful words let me hear the crackle, feel the warmth and smell the woodsmoke of the campfire. Trees "drenched in dripping diamonds of moonlight"- lovely alliteration and imagery...such precious moments in time with your husband shared. Thank you so much for sharing them with us!

Ah, a moment, those moments, when, after we have stripped every other thought away we are left with the simplicity and bliss of knowing that in fact it is not us and the universe, it is not us and god, it is just us. For we are the universe, we are god, we are the moon, he moon is us.

You are lucky your poem sounds like an elongated moment ... love those moments, clarity prevails, for only a moment but within that clarity we find peace ...

I love camping X

'Our love matches ebony- night reality.
Late and later, comes the moon, reflecting orb fire bright.
All around the forest is covered in cast molten glass.'

Start to finish beauty, lovely, inspiring, calm and loving words.. and the final line tells its root.

Thank you so much for sharing.. truly, thank you.

You are welcome. ......::::)))))
Superb descriptions of night dew glistening in the moonlight brought back memories of my camping days. "Togetherness" in the midst of nature becomes a new experience when away from the bustle and pressures of modern living.
Thanks Kathy - you nearly made me feel young again.:-)

Ah, man makes fire. The one good thing we're good at. This of course is to make sure you put the tent up. Make the meal. Find the sleeping bags.
Don't you just love camping. The great outdoors of love. Just be a minute love. Searching for logs. You look after Timothy now, Kathy. Enjoy the moonlight.
