quickening s

Put it together–
give it wings, luminescence–
send it like a star

joining myth to mystery,
the unkempt shadows of night—

Go, fill it with sound,
ringing and dancing around
the core of the tree—

Mend its beginning, the dark
of the seeded centering—

Release it into
exhalations of wonder,
a netted ceiling

filling the cracked branches with
a shared ancestry of light

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.  It goes nicely with my theme today of branches.

    Feeling the flutter of life in one’s body or soul is wondrous. I love this birth of art–wonderful last lines.

    Your layers of color are so luminous. I like the last stanza in the poem. I reminds me of our connections with the universe.

    I love the way you separate and then bring back together the past and present in this poem of change and renewal, Kerfe, especially the lines:
    ‘give it wings, luminescence–
    send it like a star
    joining myth to mystery,
    the unkempt shadows of night’
    and the sibilance of ‘seeded centering’ and ‘shared ancestry of light’.
