Impromptu

Monday 1st February 2021
Poetry by Sophya Polevaya

The first gaze:
I see a single orchid head
the floral pendant
for aquarius
with cloud petal
cluster chords
in chalk and charcoal! eternally pinned
in a canvas painted
cosmic indigo blue
accompanied by
a silent solo.

Midnight and Ma.

The second gaze:
I see a golden cocoon
of the scorpius' butterfly
a veined resin egg! cradled in
the cracked heartwood
of the pneuma
yew tree
encaged within
this blood red nest
a joyful humming bird
alive
dancing to
my favourite étude.

Aurora and Anima.
!

These two coup d'œil discs
living tableaux
of moon and sun
alternate without rest
in the iris of my eye
a thaumatrope trance.
