Refract — An Image

“Refraction” — C.Birde, 12/17

 

 

Reflect,

refract,

and shatter

yesterday’s

delusions,

the distractions

that delay progress

toward love entire.

Reflect,

refract,

and scatter

light and love,

boundless and

unfettered.

Eclipsed — A Poem

“Eclipsed — Light Effect through Linden’s Leaves” — C.Birde, 8/17

 

Sly wink and glide,

she eludes

his fiery grasp,

and scatters

her Cheshire grin

in countless

bright crescents

to mark her passage.

No portents here.

Rather,

a coy,

lunar sway

as,

smoothly,

she slips before

his wide,

unblinking

eye.

“Interlude” — C.Birde, 6/17

Hello! I will be taking a short break from my blog and will return in about two weeks.  I will continue matching words to images during my absence, and I invite you to look for me at Carrie Birde on Instagram if you should wish. Keep dreaming, and keep creating 🙂

Sun Day — A Poem

Solstice.jpg

“Solstice” — C.Birde, 6/17

 

Seconds,

Minutes,

Hours –

The slow and certain accumulation

of six-months’ time

tilts the scales

in daylight’s favor.

Solstice of Summer.

Exultant and unaware,

we blissfully tread

the insubstantial

garment of our shadows,

as the Hours

Minutes,

Seconds

steadily

reverse

their

course.
