A Wrinkle In Stars

 

 

John Keats saw stars

shinning in Fanny Brawne’s eyes,

and time wrinkled in metaphor.

The poems,

and letters he wrote to her,

expressing passion

that vibrated Saturn’s rings,

were heard in distant galaxies.

Each word became elongated,

stretching through time,

the way each sound in a whale song,

became the waves

crashing on every shore.

Keats crashed on Brawne’s shores,

and the world became universes,

filling the cosmos with verse.

 

Aztec Warrior/redzone 8.6.18

I don't know anything about Keats but your poem starts off reminding me of the old days when people wrote letters to one another. Since we are getting a media blitz right now celebrating the life of Prez Bush #41, I find the plentiful letters he wrote to be of the most interest to me, kinda magical like your poem. I love all the metaphors that you've pulled from the universe (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

thanks so much Lyn, glad you liked...
And we are so lucky it all happened. Keats has inspired a lot of the poets here on WC. His words transcend time...and we all relate to them in our own way. I relate to your poetry and it is a constant surprise to me you are able to write in so many different genres...all of them so very "nice". Lydi**
