Ancient of Days

This sky knows all my stories.

What I am
and what I am,
-knot:

bohemian
hard rain
rhapsody

sense
-ibility

pop and wind
-ensembled stranger things

heavy circles
and quiet
squares

un
-labeled
-volcanoed

good times electric
-city and candle light.

    “bohemian hard rain” Oh my gosh, I love that phrase! I’m going to use that next time it rains!

    I also like the “knot,” which to me says, “God knows who I am and what I’m tied to (good or bad).” Ancient of Days is a name for God, in case someone doesn’t know. (It’s also the name of a worship song, which is why you made it your title.)

    You squeezed in a little Jane Austen, which is awesome. (Sense and Sensibility)

    “Pop and wind” cracks me up because in our house, “pop” is the word used for passing gas. 🙂

    “heavy circles and quiet squares” Somehow, I feel like both of these all the time, among other things. Ooh, you hid a little “square sun” in there!

    “un-volcanoed” Wow. That’s powerful. I would like to un-volcano just about every day. This speaks volumes to people with anger problems. 🙂

    Love the last couplet!

  4. Sense I-bility!
    “ensembled stranger things” I also like the use of “knot.”
