This is for dVerse and ekphrastic poetry, but also for napowrimo, where I am making a small attempt at ketchuping. (Yes, my newly invented word 😉 .)
Please do check out Fay Collins’ art. The link is under the picture of these ethereal cosmos.
The Cosmos Is Blooming!
He guffaws when I say
“the cosmos are blooming”
his science-heart filled with astrophysics
quantum mechanics and other words
equally unintelligible to me.
What does he think I mean?
My eyes feast on the purple and pink
hued flowers, softly swaying
in summer’s teasing breeze.
Fern-like leaves framing joyous visages
the flower petals silky soft between indelicate fingers
The cosmos is blooming. Summer finally arrives,
while he looks upward, expectantly.
