Making Glass!


The flame
Was more than a blaze
More than hot
Fervent ~ lascivious ~


The glass
Taking form
From my pulse
No-form
Cutting and chipping

Voices in the background
Deep eyes
Evoking applause

How many can do that


Bring the color to the white
The Spectrum
That rest at least
Alone

    It takes flame (heat) to make glass, and sand (pulse) and the formless glass a relationship that flows through your veins like broken shards of glass. Voices in the background are the words of advise from someone looking deep into your soul, your words, hence the applause.
    Bring color to the white evokes images of poems written that can stand the test ot time
    and stand alone on their own. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
