A p h e l i o n g i n g

tremulo
an escapade siippery
with the dew of starry eyes
Sparks sprinkle down
from the pyres
thoughts of ash
soft as silk
syllables silent
cast
the magic of the heat

Wavering the copper green
an aurora breath
lingering
This dark wood watch
the golden glow
in animation fronds
upon the trunks
of old souls
borne fruitful
stolid rising
from the stones
and dirth of
leaves and
laying fast beneath
the breadth of
white

while the nocturne
emulsion
of visions
trance
emit
like glorious
streaks of
light
the waning
of fallen
brilliant
in exclamation

divided with
friction

in the woods
a hunter heat
heart beats
in baited tone

Esker,

Have you ever played a video game called Skyrim?

This poem is like a snapshot of the most beautiful parts of that game. The magic, the winter air, the hunter, and many of the other images fit perfectly in that world. There is even a place called "Goldenglow Estate" which is an important location in the game's story. It's surrounded by lake and dark woods beyond that.

Happy to be reading you again,
Kelsey
