This Other Sky


I used to ruminate,
ceaselessly,
upon words
with which to describe
each new day.

This morning
the words,
the sounds, change,
as the sun
scrapes across
this other sky.
With each minute pinpoint
of light
flittering through
my grandmother's lace
at the window,
a new adjective is born
and I cannot
put it to paper
quickly enough
for fear
of missing the next.



Dear LadyClaire

ah yes ... sweet gifts of new found inspiration ...
life seems renewed and born again its light.
perfection of emotion from your poets pen.
take care, jm


 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Claire~
Your words flitting
through windowed lace
are beautiful.

Such a day to behold.
Lovely ... just lovely.

My poetic Ladyfriends, thank you all, in earnest for your kind and enthusiastic words...just what I needed this evening. You all are lovely folks...
