In the Wake

jm 4c close up s

When I think
of you, I see you
floating, sails
unfurled in
iridescence like fish scales
or maybe crows’ wings,

dark and light
reflected in waves
traveling
unanchored
by time.  Will we meet again
on unmapped seas? or

as birds, hearts unveiled, trailing stars?

A elegy for both NaPoWriMo Day 24.  The first one I wrote was quite gloomy.  I took some of the images and began again.

I think the replacement was sent by the Oracle.  It has her mark.

    I hope there will be some ways to meet again… but sometimes I think we all will travel on parallel courses on an endless sea.

    Exactly my thoughts when I read this—the Oracle had a hand in this. Such dreamlike images and not at all gloomy.

    This is beautiful but you haven’t followed the dVerse prompt. The body of the poem must include the word “gather” or a form of the word as in “gathering or gathers or gathered.” Can you amend the content to do that, while keeping exactly 44 words? Sadly, if you do not, I’ll have to delete it from Mr Linky.
    I do love the illustrations.
