sun fractures through glass
pearly shafts in ivory cream
a careless reach
brings a bump of the lip
un-meant – still
glass teeters – so close

but it rights itself
deliberately oblivious

did anything happen at all?

don’t believe it
a sigh of relief
as the light dances in white
still flittering glittering
dancing iridescent pearl

in shuddering cream
~written sometime in 2006?

a sunset that put me in mind of mother-of-pearl

gentle gradations of pearliness
