Tiepolo Pink

Silvery greyhound clouds are melting into delicate splashes of Tiepolo pink

Before the cobalt blue sky plunges into the stormy sea

The earth replies with a monotonous buzzing of crickets

As if a thousand interstellar Taiko drums salute the twilight with a battle cry

And Ariel speaks:

"Have you offered a fiery agate to the spirit of my lizards?''

"Have you put a blue gemstone in a pond in honor of my peacocks?''

"Or left a circle of thirteen black shells by the ocean shore?''

Restless pale horses seem moon-lit from within across the field tonight

And Ariel's sprites burst out laughing in female voices by my river

As my thoughts become confused by invisible lyres in the wind

A painfully familiar orchestra from an ancient star

This is so cool, Diana! Love the imagery and the sensation of your words on my lips.
