11 May: Background Magic

Uffingham White Horse
AI digital art: two children camping, cabin with lantern, night sky and stars

My eyes wouldn’t sleep.
I look out the window,
a million miles into the sky,
and I see tomorrow.

It’s a flute’s cold sparkling note
floating grey-veiled over stars.
It’s an unheard voice
like a feathered breath.

Rising moon, rising
clear and shiny as an eye.
Rising like a young child.

Draw me stars, words flung
to catch a star whose point
pierces the clouds, only to be
lost in the cold depths of sea.

As night dew turned mist
and silent hours flashed its stars,
I saw a white horse on the hill.

  3. This reads very much like the poems of the North American Indigenous Peoples.
    I recently finished reading “Living Nations, Living Words: An Anthology of First Peoples Poetry by Joy Harjo.
    It is something that will stay with me for a long time, as will this. Lovely ink, Misky.

  4. I hadn’t heard of this poetry form and had to look it up – not quite perfect Cadralor it may be but I like it…
