True Blue

Our eyes are bleached blue,
not by the sun's commission,
but by what lies beneath,
the quiet of lanterns half-light,
making way for a moon reduced
to beggary.

Lines reach out, stretch like voices,
twang like violins,
bird-strummed
against blue sheet music,
so delicate, they fold in your hand,
sacred manuscripts written in stars.

Whilst weeds arrayed like kings,
bend double upon their leaves
in self adoration,
prostrate by creekbeds
the color of dusk.
Stones carefully tip
their bruised faces
towards morning.

And with regret
the stewards of the vine
twist, climb for blueness–
the oneness above,
just out of reach.

Our eyes are bleached blue,
not by the sun's commission,
but by what lies beneath,…

…the quiet of lanterns half-light,
making way for a moon reduced
to beggary.
By what grows petals
the shade of love,
harbored inside…

…the lines reach out, stretch like voices,
twang like violins, bird-strummed
against blue sheet music…

…so delicate, they fold in your hand, sacred manuscripts written in stars…

…whilst weeds arrayed like kings,
bend double upon their leaves
in self adoration,…

prostrate by creek beds,
the color of dusk.
Stones carefully tip their bruised faces
towards morning…

and with regret the stewards of the vine
twist, climb for blueness–
the oneness above, just out of reach.

Thanks Chip! The verse is mine. Usually I use the words of others greater than me:)
I respect the work you do, too.

I like very much the number 6. It seems that the world freezes in front of my eyes.
