    Deepest Night


    A heart full-gasps

    in deepest night

    before day’s dawn

    has crept its fingers

    up the sky


    to see, in blazing

    glory’s shine, some

    million dots of brightness

    blazened, crossing

    blackened heaven-drop.


    Stop.


    For seconds, or for

    moments more, store

    such treasure heart-deep

    down, to hold against

    the coming blaze of day.




    (Amazingly clear sky on the way to Mass this AM. I do wish I'd had a camera to capture it. I tried with words instead.). Happy 10th day of Christmastide!

    Excellent piece! Actually, I think you captured it very well with words! Also the way you formatted the piece made it very interesting to read as well! Very well done RLW!!!! Happy New Year!!!!!

    A lovely piece.
    Your vision is almost Blakean
    "To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
    And Eternity in an hour."

    12th Night I now realise
    makes Shakespeare's list
    and thus the day predates
    16th Century riots

      Thank you Johntee. I'm often blown away by nature - even in the wee morning hours when the wind is calmed.
