MAGPIE...Prompt #133


                                        SUMMER NIGHT/ 1913/ Albert Bloch


THANK YOU, Tess, for Magpie Tales....


BLUE MOON

Come closer, this
is the place of chance,
where once in a blue moon,
you can stumble past betrayal,
and call out a spell,

"belew, belew",
ancient chant,
duplicity, be gone.

Clouds of indgo ash,
a sky dimmed by stain.

Stay by my side, gaze,
see light tossed anew,
hope for the sun to rise
in seventh heaven.

see light tossed anew and hope...love that closure....i tried looking up belew belew...it seems familiar but just out of my grasp...it adds a level of mystery and spirituality for me...

Lyn said...

Hi Brian-
Belew/belewe...archaic spelling ...1500's, for blue. Trivia!! Thanks so much.

Tess Kincaid said...

Belew! I love this. I actually had blue moon on the mind last night when I chose this pic. Very nice, Lyn.

junkthief said...

Really lovely and so in sync with the images. I especially like the idea of the sky dimmed by stain.

Lyn said...

Hi Tess-
Went to a Blue Moon gathering Fri. night..a bit of hocus-pocus..and then your pic. Hmmm.
True believer!!

Lyn said...

Hi junkthief-
I was very much on the wavelength of this image..a real gift..thank you so much!

Laurie Kolp said...

I thought blue moon, too. I like the chant-like dance.

Ritva said...

Ooooh, loved it. "belew, belew" made me shiver.

Lyn said...

Hi Laurie-
I thought the Blue Moon theme was magical! Thanks so much...

Lyn said...

Hi Ritva-
Glad it had that effect! Thank you...

R. Burnett Baker said...

I could actually "hear" these figures saying that word "belew", and sense the flirtatious coaxing to stay with them forever!

kaykuala said...

Blue in the night and heaven's touch with the sunrise. Rightly so, Lyn!

Lyn said...

Hi Hank-
Thank you so much for your comment...this pic was so interesting...

Lyn said...

Hi JJRod'z-
Always loved those golden oldies! Thank you...

Helen said...

Lovely, Ms. Lyn! "Blue Moon" is going to be playing in my head all day!!

Karen S. said...

Your words paint a lovely scene to behold!

Linda said...

Besides the ethereal qualities of the painting, you picked up on the archaic feeling of the figures and I love that you channeled your words through the mystic nuances of ancient
times. Our 'blue moon' uneasiness is definitely connected to the spiritual naivety of the people who lived during middle ages. Awesome Lyn! Thank you for sharing.

Wayne Pitchko said...

magical indeed...thanks for this Lyn

Little Nell said...

Ah your Blue Moon is vey different to mine. I like the way you've chosen the old chant and made us think of medieval mystery mingled with the indigo ash of a different bue moon.

Kutamun said...

I like this cncept of a spiritual " last chance saloon" , where the colour blue reigns and hope springs eternal, thanks Lyn !

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
Know what you mean...me too!! Thank you...

Lyn said...

Hi Karen S.-
Really like your very kind comment..thanks so much!

Lyn said...

Hi Linda-
There seem to be so many spiritual connections in this one..and the middle ages...a treasure trove! thank you!

Lyn said...

Hi Wayne-
And thank you, indeed, for your kind words!

Lyn said...

Hi Little Nell-
So glad you liked the old connections, I'm definitely into that..thank you!

Lyn said...

Hi Kutamun-
Definitely..hope! Thanks so much!!

~T~ said...

Magical poem! Those people in the picture do look kind of blue-moony.

Lyn said...
