...magic...

Nothing can surpass
the purity and
perfect simplicity
of Nature's gifts.
They present themselves
to us
adorned only
by light.


Glass beads
have a certain
allure ~
useful to decorate
a vessel
when Nature's gifts
are not available.


The crucial component
is again light.
Add light and
things made
by human hands
can sparkle and entrance.


Occasionally
in a moment of
inspiration,
a little light magic
can be found
by combining the two ~~


Over-layering the images of beads
onto the image of the cosmos
produces a serendipitous
illusion ~~


Sparkling drops of glass and light
poured into
translucent petals ~~
that for a brief, imaginary moment
support the weight.


Then to prolong the magic ~~
stretch the beauty
into a
rippled river ~~
leading you back
to the incomparable 
 pure form
of white and light.

  10. Oh I can see you've been having play time! Great results. As for me, I got a massage, went to the grocery store, and gave in to a strong urge to cook.
