The Unseen Hand

Beneath the Moon’s sapphire halo,
Loose tendrils spill, unbound from a chignon,
Become entangled in the wisps of a dream.
I watched the night’s betrothal
Suddenly fall into reverberating silence.
With my arms draped in pale chiffon,
I lift them in homage to the full-blooded monarch.
My private supplication on lips
Moistened in anticipation for
One taste from the kiss of benediction.
The veil shimmers, its filigree awash
With incandescent dew.
Vows spoken before the golden altar
Rise, carried on the fingertips
Of a delicate breeze toward the heavens.
And her rapture
Was reflected in my own.

Author's Notes:
Hey, it was posting my grocery list or this...

Good work Jolen. I don't pretend to fully understand the context of the poem, (some sort of ritual perhaps?) but the images are crystal clear, and I can see you standing there, sans chignon. "Reverberating silence" is a strange phrase, since we usually speak about sound reverberating, but I think you get away with it as its strangeness is one with the rather unusual events taking place in the poem. I enjoyed this. You can keep the shopping list for some other time. lol

Hey, beautiful. I don't remember ever seeing this one. A couple of things I might look at: First, Is 'Becoming' necessary? Maybe just 'Entangled', or even 'Entangling' - Entangled in the wisps of a dream reads easier to me. Second, maybe change 'falling' to fallen.
Besides those, I would say it is typically sensual for the sorceress, and, original for the - something beginning with o.

Classic. Made me see visions of black and gold and maybe read, tall figures in a gothic cathedral, a transparent white figure suddenly appears and it's not a ghost...............

Mystical and lovely. I can see you in the moonlight, chiffon trailing in the breeze. Had to look up chignon. My wife cut mine off. Love new words. jp

full-blooded         reverberating           reflected in my own


Three possible edits. Mr. Pointy did a flip with all the apostrophes correct.


Noone writes about the moon with more imaginative resource, passion and feminine awareness.

You know, I was just saying to myself that we haven't had a posting from our Sorceress in awhile. So what happens? I look up and there it is! Welcome back Jody, the time away has not dulled your pen at all! This was just beautiful.  Henry

You'd make your grocery list sound good, too good of a talent not to.
Comment By: FreeLinear Z on April 30, 2007 02:05:03 PM Report
Beautiful as always Sorceress.
And the poem ain't bad either, natch! It feels very much like your style of poem, spiritual, abstract, evocative. Nice work.
And good to see you posting again!
