One of my faves from Ms. SilverPotery. Thank you dear sweet poetess.

There is tugging at my ribbons
a wild, teasing acapella
oh this noise is rich…
rich enough to decorate my hollows
to drop me to my knees
whilst midnight space rushes
like swift tide
expanding the universe
cracking my chest
a kaleidoscopic orchestra of YES
Yet the whisper is gold that God’s music is a floating note
and it is just I, this phosphorescent speck who has been dappled with fluted purple explosion…
I have been crowned with questions
and led to these stone steps
to press my burning ear against a mossy wall….
listening for angels
braving the storm
