the future is exploded
time again undone
become the sun
just as it rises
a mystery within
nourished by the sun
the shadow as it rises
awake it rises
tracing paths within
a silhouette in sun
the sun returning rises as the light within
For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt this week, “Obelisk”, below.
The Obelisk was originally an Egyptian stone monument sacred to the sun god Ra, especially associated with sunrise and sunset.
The poetic form I used was tritrina.

It could play your brain
with linear light
Your head a game
The Geek Oracle always has a different approach to its messages.
Sue Vincent’s prompt this week, “Enigma”, is a photo of two standing stones. The Magnetic Oracle chose to see them as having their own spirits, rather than being inhabited by malicious or unlucky humans who have been transformed.

The clouds are cold, still
heavy with winter. Layers

I have two pieces of art and a poem inspired by the great Nina Simone and her song “Wild is the Wind” on Marianne Szlyk’s musical blog “The song is…” You can see them here, along with a fun essay by Bill Cushing on not driving. Marianne has also included a link to the song, as well as a variety of other musical pleasures.
“The song is..” features a lot of interesting writing, art, and music, so take a look around while you’re there.
