exposed mandala s

Go you darkened, alive,
in silence growing—
go you as wildness
mingling with earth and trees,

holding the sky open
to the wind, seedlings flying,
rooted in air.

Dance you as water falling,
as a jewel crowning–
dance you as the shadow
released to the circle of light,

undressing the stars down
to the bones, falling like moonlight
covered in crystalline wings.

sun caught in trees

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.

    This must be one of my favourites, Kerfe… both the rays and the forest captured in the artwork and the poem, of which I cannot isolate any line or image. Just gorgeous.

    This is beautiful, Kerfe. I love the “go you,” “dance you,” and the images you create in the final lines–wings of light. The image is so beautiful, too.

    This is so ethereal, magical, a sense of flight, growth. Really beautiful and the art is stunning Kerfe 👏👏👏

    This is lovely, light and wings. The image echoes the photograph so well, like its bare bones.
