Sparkler.

Folder: 
Ashes & Embers.

Beneath the twilight

of fading stars and yawning sun.
A sparkler quickly scribes the air with light.
Conductor baton burning,

twirling

carving the air

ashes cascade about.

 

In perfect cursive form,

not only a word
Or a name

but an essence.
A luminous whisper presented to the heavens above.
In a way that those stars and that moon would see,

and notice the beauty one has found

within the etched air

now holding the imprint

of a soul's vision of another.

I love it...  my nightlights

I love it... 

my nightlights flicker in melodious short circuit,

the luminescence expands, divides, transcends,

as I open my eyes, to the beauty of terra...

I land.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Oh yes... that all

Oh yes... that all encompassed some depth.

The fishes of this ocean are hungry

and they bite.

The prized nourishment serves them well.

They descend,

Disolve.

knowing they have the furvor to dwell in the distant spance that is the sweet ocean floor.

You are very welcome.9inety and yourself ...I read you both in the same day, and it's like something I cannot explain....yet. Two opposite ends of a light spectrum through the prism.

Humbled.

9inety is a generation of ability far beyond mine.

I love to unravel his cosmic cryptics.

Tis what I like to call... "Good shit"

You are so very complimentary nightlight, I feel every touch: thank you very very much : D

Ahhh thank you dearly.When

Ahhh thank you dearly.
When the word "beautiful" is hand selected and then placed through reaction to my extended soul,

something fills of it inside me.

A welcomed validation of sorts.

Your brief wink conjured a needed smile this eve my dear.

I thank you kindly : D

Beautiful that last idea was incredible! Pure gold! I felt I understood implicitly what you were describing here! I even wish I wrote it, so beautifully rendered, I have some thing close but very far from the beautiful way you expressed it here! Wonderful! HugSS

You do humble my efforts dear

You do humble my efforts dear SS.

This came from a very special, important place.

It seems as though that realm leaked onto this page in some well enough lucidity.

How sweet of you to place such energy into a shared reaction.

What a remarkable eye you possess,

which connects equally to an essesce,

tied to an oversoul of grand yet connectable proportions.

You fascinate this star gazer.

Much love,

And thank you for sharing yourself my dear.

Well, sometimes I am a shitty writer so ; P

What a great comment to read Ashley, thank you!

I believe it is important to keep a wondering perspective through life.

There is magic in everything.

I wish that more people stepped back and viewed objects or situations or... anything and everything as if it were brand new. Their first time.

That is a lot of how I go about my ways.

Always makes me happy to share of this way,

and more so when someone sees and connects.

you are NOT a shitty writer my dear don't you even! for shame sir for shame!

 

I agree veiwing everything as brandnew can bring so much to one's life, I think its why many relationships fail, the in-ability to view the person as new, the bringing of what you already know of them to the times you see them, its just sad. 

 

thanks for the share!

 


Much Love

Enchanted,

Embraced,

 

I feel validated this eve.
