Silent Night ( when the violin prayed )

image

On my way home

he was standing there

at the edge of the room

of vision lore

a great mysterious appearing door

not known to exist before .

I shut my eyes tight

the sun struck the sepia shore

life held so safely

by curtains of doves

fluttering above

like echoes ” this is all for you ” more .

image

Her feet he held

bared on the quiet site

upon placed winged slippers of white

she was paralyzed, no sound

God , are you watching what we do ?

the graveyard appeared by a stream

the dragonfly skimming blue wings

ripples moved the shocked world

in weavings calm

and her feet left the ground

He was standing there

at the edge of the room

on my way home.

image

The light was naked , neon

the taste  , blood pudding

the smell of sugarcane and mud

the dilemma of drums

a forest filled with sleeping bugs .

He stood there

at the edge of the room

on my way home .

  2. What a beautiful and curious piece. You have a way of writing that gives just enough to pull the reader in more and more, but leaves us open enough to add our own interpretation or imagery into what you write. Feels like such a lovely shared experience. Of course, I love the art and music. We share a richness in imagery for sure.

    Sending your grace, laughter and great beauty this holiday and throughout the coming year, my friend. May abundance flow like water through your hands. Much love, Noelle

  3. Such a fascinating combination of words and images- I feel I could read it a few more times to get lost in that in between worlds place as Geetha said. Love the powerful version of the old Simon and Garfunkle song. It always was a powerful song. Good choice!

  5. Your imagery is always both sensitive and resounding, Meg. It resonates with the places inside of me that are profoundly human– where beauty and trust abide. The winged slippers, the doorways, the curtains of doves. I feel you always touch upon abundance in its raw and unadulterated form…

    Hope you are enjoying this season of silent, holy nights…
    Love
    Michael
