A Poem by Fay Slimm





Shadowy movements of ethereal
music play nebulous games
with the moonlight's white fingers
across uncanny skyscapes.


Tonight diaphanous curl of filmy
grey smoke whispers its
journey along water's dark mask
with swirls of limpidity.


Time for wonder as tiffany uplights  
              mosaic patterns in gloom                   
on a blackening trout's fishy back
to create sheer translucence.


Thru' glassy mist night-jet hangs
gauze over sickle-shaped
glow netting half lit luna lantern 
in haunting gilt-opaque.


Clouds part and I stand entranced
as the rare yellow ghost
of a flimsy late rainbow skims past
flaring but for a moment.

it matters not a single jot how often I look at the image you have posted here to accompany your fine words .. I never seem to tire of it and see something slightly different each time .. Quite like the shifting impressions and imagery that comes to me slowly when I read your words .... and again.. that summative stanza says so bloomin much ....................
