Waxing Gibbous (love and light)



Here I sit with natural black

obsidian, polished, to find the lack, for

one who doubts her glowing presence

reminding us in opalescence

all is never as it seems and

life is naught but solid dreams


This schoolroom, where we choose to be

(contracts signed, souls are free)

making choices, those are ours

lit by moonlight, sunlight, stars

guided by the gentle hand,

a musing Goddess with a plan


Written deep, the orb above

a message of enduring love

for you and I to try and reach

So while you wander sans la lune

I will endeavor to try to teach,

the art of

"Drawing down the Moon"


.

Oh I like this. I'm trying to think of something more profound to say, but eh no, I like this.

I'm with V. It's beautiful but I'm beyond profound words at present. I think I will just wait for the next full moon and practice my howling.

Minx said...

Tis enough - thank you.

(Alper is on the beach (again), she and her lovely family leave on the moro - I think I shall cry)

BEAUTIFUL!!

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Oh... sigh.

Food for my soul, lady. So very good. Thank you, humbly.

I LOVED 'while you wander sans la lune'...

She does disappear sometimes. Am I lost without her? Maybe so.

Thanks for bringing her back.

Love the pic too... started humming... 'there's a moon out tonight... la la la la... let's go strollin'

Couple of full moons there.

Verilion said...

Oh Minx, that wasn't long enough was it! Guess you'll have to go and visit London now.

Marie said...

Very nice.

Cailleach said...

Yep, you've got a lovey sadness in this one Minx. Nice work.

Minx said...

I am sad - Debi is gone. Someone hand me a tissue.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Here, have a box of tissue, and some of the chickens chocolates.
I'm sure Atyllah will share.
You'll feel better soon.

And have a bit of red wine to go with the spicy chocolate.

Oh poor you Minx - here's my shoulder, have a sob on there too.

mutleythedog said...

Thank goodness she is gone!! I was getting fed up living in the shed... can I come back now please ... I have a cold and my arthritis hurts...and I have not eaten hot food for four days..

Minx said...

Chicken chocolates? Will they make me feel better? Heh.

And thanks, all shoulders are welcome.

Minx said...

Sorry, Mutley, more guests (ahem) expected tomorrow. Another week in the shed should do it. I'll give you an extra blanket and put your dog food in the microwave. Now stop moaning, there's a good boy.

Loved the rhythm; I can see the piece being read on stage with a ballerina in the background doing an interpretative number. ^_^

Cheers. Thanks, by the way, for dropping by my site.

Minx said...

Nice image, Souless, thanks.
