Blue impressions



dawn is a chimera
mixing the star lights
with birthing hour of light



quick is the rising mist -
blurring of sapphire, glint of topaz stones,
fragment of powdery clouds, shimmer of moth-wings 



here is the moment:
teardrop lingers in moon's eye
lash
frozen in frame
as giant wave
curling
cresting before crashing
into field of cornflowers



milk-spilled sky mingles with
dandelion-wrinkled rain-



I'm wrapped in drifting leaves
as i drive into city's white noise
serene as lake 





            Vetheuil In The Fog

  3. Oh how I liked this poem. You had me at "dawn is a chimera"...I love the shades of blue in this, the illusions of fog and sea...And when I scrolled to the end and saw the painting you had chosen, it was perfection.

  4. I love those blue impressions, Grace, the way you mixed 'the star lights
    with birthing hour of light'
    and the moment:
    teardrop lingers in moon's eye
    lash
    frozen in frame'!

  5. This was an ace expression, pure perfection as per the painting; poem for the ages; with divers gushes & atoms accolades. I adored the whole thing, but liked the lines /milk-spilled sky mingles with/dandelion-wrinkled rain/.
