Origamied



Happy Birthday To The Magical  Wordle :)


Oh shimmy origami dragon off the edge of that disheveled shelved wall- fall filamented, rise ethereal, wavering wonder in the dappled light, you much maligned misbegotten, misunderstood - now delight filled dragon swallowing exquisite acute and abstract aches all - until - coda peace flows as the sweet smoky flame of your spangling shimmered smile silencing the would- be cacophony of dreams’ ferment.

  1. I, too, would like to see an origami dragon shimmy. That would be a wondrous sight indeed! Alas, as you point out, most dragons are maligned, misbegotten and misunderstood. :(

    1. It wasn't always that way. China's first emperor was a dragon turned man. That's why the reverence for the beast in China. Sad, we have no such dreams now.

  6. Wonderful and yes, it is so sad that most dragons are maligned, misbegotten, and misunderstood, as you say. Gorgeous photo as well!

  8. I love the stream of consciousness flow and alliteration here Pearl - it's magical ...

    (one quibble that I hesitate to mention but figure I know you well enough to ask: should "dishelveled" read as it stands or is it a typo? I thought it more likely you meant either "dishevelled" or "dishelved" - the latter still being a bastardization spelling but could be used in a poem to go along with shelved ...or, I could be completely off-base and you meant what you meant in the first place ...)

    mine is here: feel free to have at it!

  9. Ah, Pearl, I wish I had time each day to pause here. I could re-energize just by reading your offering of the day. You can string words together in such a way that takes the reader on a solo flight with imagination.

    Excellent one, as always.
