Background Magic (Twiglet)

It’s in the dusk clouds

Hurrying to leave day, or

Take their place, night’s stage

Lavender-gray felt pieces

Soft blown on whispering breeze…

~

Oft’, in pear-shaped moon

Played like mandolin by Muse

Songs of heart, soul strummed

Background magic worn as cape

Sapphire, silver silk threads sewn

Lost

img_0561

Lost repeatedly

Lost in recurrent scenes where

Backdrop, atmosphere

Vary imperceptibly

Theme remains the same always

~

Lost, ne’er to be found

Ever dusty dusk, near night

Quieting of day’s

Movement, sound, streets now emptied

I’m undiscovered, not found

~

Walking, hope to see

Some familiarity

Walking ‘mid mute dim

Weary walk, ’till awakened

From dreams, Lost…ne’er to be found

Time’s Silvered Blur

Time’s hands run circles

Etching stories on my face

Convert, squaring rows:

Months’ pages racing past…years

Too swift gone to capture glimpse

~

Aged vision blurs glass

Poet’s rain…words ripple, pool ~

Relentless, seek healed

Quietness of soul at dusk

Where blessed-rest at last is met
