Music from the Corner of Winter

We are wearing thin the rooftops
of the castles and the cabins
and the carpet in the doorway
is a pathway built of summer

You can hear the fingers knocking
slipping sea into the canyon
you can feel the moon regretful
drawing ridges on the pillow

They are wearing thin the blanket
lost the warmth in new of winter
gone is the open skin sigh
in the softly floating midnight

and you can hear the naked trees
release the moan of morning
you can feel the sky exhale
like a filling open vessel

and the cuddle is all curled up
not long or delicious slowly
it is under blanket fast-wrap
in the frozen sheets of evening

you can see the frost on windows
you can hear the teeth of singing
you can feel the arms of winter
as your slumber groans and mumbles

and you want to travel sideways
when you see the world turn crystal
then new magic takes a window
and fills it full of softness

and you know the perfect blessing
in a sudden turn of insight
is the music from the corner
of going home

lovely, lovely, I tell you, the way you turn phrases is phenomenal!

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

and I'm being pulled in...

Multi layered write. Winter could be the ultimate extent of life and home the promised reward. This was not a threatening winter but one observed in clever verse.

This is remarkable, Martie.   *hugs* sweetie

The stars will shine when I am gone,
the earth will turn on as before,
the gulls, still race along the shore,
the morning star, still kiss the dawn

Martie,

Yes, you have a beautiful poetic mind and how blessed we are having you share it with us.

I especially liked the last four lines.

Hugs, Pat

You have just proven to me, by going from here to there ( http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum83/HTML/001872.html ) that thoughts can be both timeless and seamless across time.

Thank you.

===================================

I am grateful that this came back up, as I missed it the first time around..and that was indeed my loss....
as always what you do with imagery and personifi leaves me smiling and shaking me mothy head at your talent.
Now I am delightly off to the next installment of this.

It's a matter of understanding....

Understanding the beauty that is already there, the possibilities that are always present, and the continuity that binds them together....

It's also a matter of being Martie.

Oh God, how did I miss this!

It's beautiful Martie, every single word every single line.

Going to read parts 2 and 3 now

you
