Magpie Tales 144: Lights of Life





gather 


moon gathers clouds

sun swallows fog 

night and day dance
playfully ignorant of 
our dream and vision.

  3. Ah, twilight..... romantic to earthlings, but not as sensual for the orbs spinning through the galaxy that are the cause of the ambient light we experience here on earth .......at twilight. I love your thinking Rick. Thank you for sharing this.

  7. Your words are beautiful, and I like the way moon gathers clouds and sun swallows fog works so well with the black and yellow jackets on the prompt.

    Really well done.
