spentlighter

cloud of gauzy milk over Luna
seeps slow like a cataract
night glows, but her iris a beacon,
a cappella of intuition

holograms streak like sprites
cracks in a hoarfrost wind
Then the breeze shifts, removing censure
like alabaster monarch cocoons
for here lies the saga
of fiery thorned births

and the shirt tails
of comets blue blazed
each pain that ever was
gives to twilight amnesia
the burning of roses to smoke

for love is the archway
the bridge of entwining
this lightning of divine brocade
Day twists into night
with it’s blameless glow
blush halo of aurora spent

light seconds to epochs
are softened and blurred
yet shimmer like paints in the rain

shadow apparition
awakened silhouette
her disintegration
and resurrection
complete.
