605
Maria pale on the paler plains
That shipped a sail white on black
To the sky-bound eye
On Imbrium and Nectaris.
The scend of due gravity wove
A song, eye symphonic,
Solar wind for a tint of silence.

Mark,

First - I'm having a good laugh over your comment a few posts down regarding "hay" .... isn't there some prosaic statement regarding making hay while the sun still shines .. ??
- thanks for the smile.

Second - a commenter once mentioned the use of sonics regarding one of my poems. I never truly understood the term - but your poem here reminded me of it .... so i googled poetic sonics and yep, you've made good use of sonics here!

Third - love the pic. It reminds me of Joni Mitchell's lyrics in the song Amelia ..... the hexagrams of heaven ....

fabulous, as always
lady blue
