How Big Is Here?

A cold April day --here
Rain overlays its sound
Where kind and kind commingle--
A sigh that does not stop but
Scales windy treetops under
This moon of ours...
           ...sings with the
Sighing sea in a language
Of stars, here with you
And here with me.

  1. This makes me want to be out in the rain - at dusk, whilst swimming, under patchy cloud so the stars can float next to me :-)

    1. That is so lovely! One can feel the coolness, water, stars and Oak Dragon overhead. I sure need positive, magical images right now. Thanks Lisa.

  2. Here is infinite. Here is smaller than a dot. Here can expand and contract. It's kind of miraculous, innit?

    Nice one, Geo. And nice Normaphotos to go with.

    I hope you and your family are well and safe, my friend.

    1. 0_friend_Jenny, to the physicist and the gardener, HERE has the same dimensions as NOW --unimaginably big and unthinkably small operations of a past, future and (quite importantly) a present that includes us. Glad you're here.

  3. Beautiful poem and sentiment Geo. And the pic of the moon and finger is cool, too!

    1. M'Lady, thanks! During troubled times I find balancing the moon on my finger helpful. Stars are much hotter and require gloves.

  4. Your words captured such days and such photos. There has been a full moon for 3 days, so I guess that is all we have now. Have to wait for some days.

    1. Dear Susan, thank you! I have always had a problem with waiting. I fidget. People say it will get easier but now, in my 70s, I'm getting impatient about that too.
