Master Class





Master Class

In the midst of the still - in the pause of busy
silken as tip of infant curl brushed bare breast
In the midst of the still - in the pause of busy
oil sliding melting remnant jot of jealous velvet
In the midst of the still - in the pause of busy
clinked-crystal pearlescent peal of single chime
in the cupped bowl
single silvery drop
echoing
light
listen
now

  1. It's like the moment before a symphony.. how we notice every little think, preparing to be aware.

  2. In the midst of the still, we at LAST take time to listen. Nicely expressed, Pearl.

  3. To me, this reads like a meditation that reaches deeply into the soul. The sound of the single chime - I love this. I must listen. Thank you.

  4. An impressive use of words in this one, Pearl. I especially like the "clinked-crystal pearlescent peal of single chime".

  5. Interesting... but enlighten my ignorant mind, the theme? So I can re-read it with a better understanding :)

  7. I could almost hear the sound of that chime, that reminder of a time now long past of both joy and sadness.

  8. Oh YES! Moments of real heaven (and perhaps all the rest is, as some tell us, illusion).
