    Clinging to water
    she arises
    not in a dazzling explosion
    like the stars
    but in the soft alchemy
    of my heart.

    In my heart she arises
    intertwined with delicate glances
    that coalesce into love
    and four seasons-
    invisible from the offices
    where somnambulists
    miter mandalas
    and shout: "life depends
    upon the next election."

    Yes the offices of the walking dead. There is no life hiding there. I really enjoyed this! Their dead and don't know it

        One thing - among many - that I like about your verse, lunar glide, is the way it actually glides. The way you've paced this, its rhythmic flow, is a joy to behold (and hear).

              To me- she is a beautiful memory that presents itself unanticipated but appreciate and brings tears and smiles, emotions that cannot be explained or defined- only felt.

              I don't understand the final quote

                i relate to memories! the final quote is a jab at the ridiculous wrong path we are on collectively. I appreciate the visit! 😄

                    The first stanza is yet another example of your romantic poetic talent, lunar glide. I am in love with the idea and the way you express it. As the words unfolded, I thought about birth - to paraphrase - arising from water, but now I think it is romantic love of which you poeticize. You then build upon the contrast and comparison of blooming love to exploding stars - the cosmos, with coalescence, delicate glances and four seasons. This is a well wrought, thoughtful piece, worthy of your pen and a joy to read.

                      your analysis is always a joy as well! I missed your comments not as much as I missed your poems though

                    I have read this three times, and gleaned more with each read.

                    Haunting in pace and diction.

                    Truly excellent.
