Talk to the hand,
but hurry.
It's about to disappear
inside a rush of light
so bright
it melts my skin.
And there are secrets 
to unfold. 
Mysteries, washed in
gold and hidden 
from my view.
Unknown, like you.

Looks like my new poetry website will be up and running sometime next week. It looks great, and I'm excited to welcome you there! Still have some work to do, but I couldn't be happier with the results. Anyway, hope you will take a minute to stop by susannoyesandersonpoems.com once it goes live. (Or now, for that matter. If you click over today, you can check out the old site and compare it to the new one when it debuts.)

I love the feeling that there are still undiscovered mysteries out there. Even at our age, we still like to think there remain unknown delights and discoveries waiting for us - hopefully gold-washed. I never grow out of being ever hopeful.

what a rather mysterious verse...
the first line made me laugh because it is usually a snarky remark....but i like the mysteries in life...and the unfolding of them....smiles.

The poem is magical! Did the photo inspire the poem, or did you write the poem and then search for the photo?

We do only have so much time on earth to find those mysteries and time seems to dissolve like that lovely sunny moment.

Karen Sue said...

so, when you hold your hand over your flashlight, can you see through it?? Why can't I see my bones in there? Leftover thoughts from my childhood...

Prepare for revelation...
