[Phantom of the Opera Venetian Masquerade Mask from google dot com]

The mask shows
It tells
There's never the lie

A sinister power dared to show
The mask of soul allowed to agent

For too small is ego
And too large is spirit

Yet mask of go-between
Perfect in its application

Spa day, we peel and daub
In doll house feminine
Transforming stress to dust of dust

Bigger than the phoenix
The fire risen in depths
Of passion
The phantom and the dance of life
Plays on

Monday WRites 415

[all images in this Blue Mosaic from google dot com]

She wanders amongst lonely clouds,
Her shoes are prime stilleto blue,
A postcard away from gathering crowds,
Of this she is all for nought too new,

Even should a bird pause to listen,
Narry a song will be given to morning
Though sunlight to dew will glisten
Still to moon drops she be clinging.

there's magic in my kitchen

as two sets of colours
food colours merge

the child understands
the merging delights her
another colour mix

this immersing and flowing

there is no loss
only merging [return]ing

maybe a return
to that oneness
that already was
