SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Penumbra



External implosion.
Internal explosion.

Dancing in a ballet of ionic mime!
Feeling with infinite intensity!
Running in cosmic direction!
Moving in colors uncharted!
Magnetic pulls play between cerebral spheres!

Looking out at the eclipse of myself.
Looking in at the freedom of me.

I have to admit I had to look up the meaning of the word penumbra, but after I did, I can say two things:

1. oh yeah, I did know that

2. Brilliant poem!

And you can follow the links to its sister, the Analemma.

Then proceed over to my friend Kissyface and note the last picture, a Sculpture of Cupid and Psyche, andf see the resemblance to these celestial events.

Yes, babe, you pulled my string with this one!

This is a lovely poem and I envy your self-expression. I wish I could say I feel the same way, but right now, I feel nothing but confusion and frustration with myself. Oh well. I'm sure it will pass.
