Cue Cards for a Wayward Sky

..

Dance,
we scribe; try to spark
and lull the clouds to play
their bubblegrins across
our open-shadow song.

Twist,
we sing. Skip and
dream of green breezes
spilled through rose jars,
melted shimmer-snow.

Breathe.
Right on cue,
when journey leaves
us jarred,
we know.

A second offering for today’s Quadrille: the one in which she uses all the words.

    I liked the ambiguity of this – I also loved the audacity of giving the skies a cue. Inspired.

  5. The contrast between the joyful dance and the jarred end… most like life I think… and will winter coming early I feel the same.

    Love how you and Bjorn use all the former words for the quadrille. I don’t know what I’m waiting for, it’s just going to get more difficult! 🙂

    I too like the ambiguity – and the beauty.
