Tuesday poem #195 : Suzanne Zelazo : Diviner

Deciduous trees leave cracks in crystal canopies
Splash pool lucid
Semiotic darkroom

Kettle lake amnesia
Wake the Emperor not his empress

Rice paper quiver
A rhyme

retinal dream dislodged in the escarpment
Neural letterpress seduction
Proper bound

Headwater pearls

With angel rod and brushstroke
Coded cataract occlusion
ripple blow
the bogs a glass harmonica
sing invisible mime

Unfold the apple blossoms
Origami touch sound
Amplified kiss
