Unreal.

Unreal.

A Poem by Fay Slimm

 

 

Unreal.

 

Shadowy movements of ethereal
music play nebulous games
with light's lacy fingers, weaving
watery lines on sleepy lake.

Tonight diaphanous curl of filmy
grey smoke whispers its
          liquid journey along growing dim           
with fervent limpidity.

Time holds breath as stars stack
essence of tiffany dew
on blackening trout's shiny back
in twilight's translucence.

Mist covers sky but above hangs
the gauzy sickle-shaped
glow of shade-blinkered lantern
trying to flicker again.

Clouds part and dome entrances
as the beautiful ghost
of a fading rainbow dances its last 
and night closes the show.

The description of a cloudy sky is amazing. It allowed me to picture the scene within my mind clearly. Then the departure of the clouds allows the stars to shine through gleaming with all their beauty.

'.. a fading rainbow dances its last - and night closes the show. '

Four dramatic stanzas laid with rich vocabulary and scenes set exquisitely, Fay. But then you finish with such delicate and subtle phrasing, I sat back, sighing, calm, lips needing to smile.

Beautiful.
