Poetry Invitation # 33 :: Practicing Resurrection

Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Every so often, Abbey of the Arts hosts a poetry invitation. She posts a picture and a theme and invites anyone to respond with poems, reflections, prose. Check the icon for more info. Read my submission below.

Twilight Resurrection
dancing with a golden mirth
She skips across the sun-soaked beach,
splaying her toes, softly burrowing
into velvety sand, then splashing,
splashing ~ making iridescent ripples
in a silent and silvery sea
that seems to come from 
beyond twilight
She sparkles in a dusky sunset, 
appearing simultaneously
miniscule and monumental.

I like it! Especially

"She sparkles in a dusky sunset,
appearing simultaneously
miniscule and monumental."

Evokes our relationship to both an oceanic and an Oceanic backdrop...

Foamy ~ :^)

Christine/Abbey ~ many thx for the inspiration and opportunity you provide thru these 'parties' ... at first I wasn't sure I could get the poetry muse to follow that process ... but she did! And it felt good, flowed smoothly.

Paul ~ thx; yes, there's something life-affirming about the ocean.

Hi Tinkerbell--

Especially liked the line of She sparkling as: 'simultaneoulsy miniscule and monumental'

Lovely! Thanks for the depth of this piece.
