Fervent feet step into aisles
of a buttressed cathedral
shod in shoes the colors of the sky,
clay after the rain —
Knees bend into kneeling
pads of the prism,
descend into oblivious
oceans of praise —
At the the stroke of celestial
earthenware vessels of infinite
into a niveous porcelain vase:
flawless as the morning light,
the morning’s evanescent white.

The choice of words, Dee, and how you string them into tinsel – truly poetry in motion.
Peace and all good wishes,
Poetry in motion, stringed into tinsel, ascribed to the words of this poem, is the utmost compliment unattainable in my puny dreams. Thank you, Eric my friend.
Best of good wishes,
Breathtaking use of language to describe the experience of the morning light. Really, it is a beautiful prayer and flows completely in a natural progression. Love it!!
How wonderful your impression on the words in this piece, Ellen — a “prayer, and flows completely in a natural progression”. What a truly beautiful compliment. Thank you so much. Best wishes, Dee
Ice-Vases, that’s how I see our soul. The subtlety is frozen beauty! BEAUTIFUL as always Dee! Blessings friend ~Debbie
What a profound perception… “ice vases, the subtlety of frozen beauty”… thank you for sharing this nugget of truth, my friend! Indeed beauty is forever frozen into timelessness… into eternity. There is nothing that can diminish it, it can only grow deeper in its essence with time. Love you, Debbie. Dee
There is a sweet beautiful music found only in your words, Dee. My breath calms and my eyes tear, but my heart……..my heart recognizes the song. ~ Love to you, my beautiful friend. ~ Bobbie
Dear Bobbie, I have known for a while that your heart recognizes the song in my words, for we live and breathe, are clothed and fed by the same language. Love to you too, my beautiful friend.
