Still light

sparks fly
through my dreams

smoky air
keeps the
light golden

your touch left
a trace of phosphorescence
on my skin in
glowing blue lines
that don't fade
in dusky light

The powdery purply-blue of ripening plums that disappears when you pick them and rub them is here for me, only it doesn't disappear into the glossy sheen of the plum's skin but marvelously remains, a "phosphorescence" of "glowing blue lines /that don't fade."

Chill bumps from this one.

Whew, need to go calm down now.

(P.S. -- Thanks tons for your high-sign about The Festival of the Trees -- and for the neighborly comment while my 'puter was puny.)

If I close my eyes, the fireworks are distant but still touching a woman in time.
