Furore Poetica

To collage in words, or with paper?

I  dream  and imagine 
caught in a zone of longing
to splash mediums, textures, 
affirmative words 
instill the essence of life's poetic fire
on a blank background.

On my table, a boskiness  of  trees
is, with darkest  leaves,
twisting across stone-wort rocks.
Mossy, dank and dappled in owl light,
the  source of life hangs, elixir-like. 

Calliope dances, 
silver bell trees bloom above star asters
Canterius,  halts motion
in a demivolte of stone 
There, where  hippogriffs have taken flight-
Epicamus' stand in waiting
for some distant cipher
to begin life.

A strange petalody
awaits blue flowering-paper- 
shaped, painted and glued
seem lifelike-
but there is no fragrance,
no fragility, and no
secret unfolding.

I am no God.

A fantastic poem, Suzanne. It has so many archaic words that give it an ancient feel of divinity, God-inspired poetry. Enlighten me, what does the word "Furore" mean? A great poem though. Love and more love to you and yours.
