Singular Moment

Afterglow by Elizabeth Crawford

bloom joy flex overcome moon reflect
loon tense wrinkle time present face

For the Sunday Whirl: wordle #473

In this present but tense
wrinkle of time,
bloom of moon’s reflection
overcomes face of dark waters,
and call of a single loon
brings a flex of joy
in knowing I

am not alone.

Note: I’ve been away far too long, but when I saw this list of words they immediately began to dance, daring me to join them. Image is a digital painting done several years ago.

    Oh, this is BEAUTIFUL, and uplifting. Very needed right now. I am writing a series of dirges about the wildfires….your poem is good medicine.

    I am especially fond of your “afterglow” graphic here. So many stories hinted at seeing. By chance an article of science/art I found today and think you will appreciate more than most. Be well.

    Thanks Neil, both for the read and the comment. I did read the article and although I was a failure at science, I loved all the images and was completely drawn in….



  4. That is such an uplifting way to see oneself, rather than alone in our world of “craziness”. I love the line “And a call of a single loon”. I can hear it!

    Thank you Stine Writing. For some reason, the cry of a loon has always made me think of the function of radar. In my mind that call reaches out seeking a response and I love it.
