transitional s

The earth has its own song–lavish, extravagantly
saturated with rich hue—voices that fall gently,
multiplying as they emerge–seeds that spill, turning,
unseen, marinating in the music of to be

To watch to walk the day and hold the descant, breathing
following the wind in liquid sky awash, swimming
full and boundless, basking in the light of distant orbs
as the air chills, covers itself—radiant, waiting

Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above, seemed perfect for a rubaiyat emphasizing imagery, as requested by Jilly at dVerse.  This time I managed 13 syllable lines.

The rubaiyat is the poetic form at dVerse for the month of February, and I expect to try at least one more.

    Beautiful–these lines in particular for me: “To watch to walk the day and hold the descant, breathing
    following the wind in liquid sky awash,”

    But I’m not clear on what makes this a rubaiyat?

    Lavish and lovely 🙂 Sorry I missed this. We’re having problems with our internet connection and I’m having great blanks of communication.

    I love the song ‘extravagantly saturated with rich hue’ and the way the voices marinate ‘in the music of to be’. A radiant poem!

    Wow, I keep saying that… but I mean it! 😉 I’m so loving the vibrant colors of this one!! Did you add a little irredescent paint as well? Your poem is amazing as well!

      Oh that’s such good news Jill! Thanks for letting me know.
      Yes, I’ve been using iridescent paint a lot. Mixing and layering it with other colors. I like how it makes the light change the painting.
