Spun Silk

Spun Silk

A Poem by Wendy Karasin


Silent satin answers
through my window swim
senses reel electric
strength that doth seep in

Clouds of spun silk willow
drawn of lives and love
liquid silver background
white and feathered doves

Placid waters shining
blue the hue on high
ever green enrichment
clouds pass slowly by

There is something very soothing about this piece today. Teminds me of sitting utside on a summer night watching the stars roll by, hearing the cicadas singing in the background and feeling the coold evening breeze upon my skin. Very peaceful indeed.

This was beautiful! You spun a wonderful flow of sensory images and visual definition.

The first stanza reminds me of what it might be to look out from one's bedtime abode and see if living upon a bluff that overlooked the night lights of a large metropolis. I do wonder if you meant to use the word "reel" on purpose? If you were intending it to be taken as a reel, like a movie reel, than that works. If you were meaning it to be "real" as in that stone is real because I can touch it, than you would need to change the spelling.

The second stanza is a dazzling show for the minds eye to dive into. For me that stanza brought an image of a world of peace and blue sky, where the birds of love always have a mate and nothing exists with course edges. The thought of a movie screen also came to mind with that stanzas third line.

The final stanza once again brings the feeling of peace and serenity. As if one has their feet out infront of them and the back against a tree and are simply taking in the refreshing calm of a small lake and the sky reflecting upon it.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this poem. It left me with a sense of beauty and tranquility. Two Thumbs Up!
