night through a frosty windowgalaxies glisten across glass the constellations crowd between clustered frost beads tangle in their ice-bright fringes inches from my face sealed-in stars play with the planets two kinds of tingling light touch fingers kiss in my eye focusing near to far to near tells me they are worlds apart but melted by a breath see again now they all swim together on the dark pane (Luci Shaw)
In case you’re interested in my process here: every time I Post Poetry (:P), it gets tagged with the book it comes from, minus small words (for example, this book is “Listen to the Green”; another book is called “Worms Wiggle, Bugs Jiggle”, but the tag is just “worms bugs”); plus the season in which I might like to read it again. As well as the tag “poetry” of course. Oh, and the title of my “book” is “mine”, haha!
I just have so many poetry books that never get opened, yet are so full of delights! So if I read through and pick out my favourites to put here, I’ll be able to read them over again each season. Plus, maybe you can enjoy them too!
