Uranus, The Magician (as per Holst's The Planets)


Uranus, The Magician

Take a glance

An icy blue gem
spinning slowly on its side
skittering across the solar system.

Zoom in

A lunar dance,
fairies, heros, and lovers
all twirling around the shimmering sphere.

Look closer

The robed magician
in powder blue attire
enchanting this place, where reality drifts.

Lovely and beautifully allusive. Very nicely capturing both the reality of Uranus and his entourage and Holstís music. Thank you.

Such an enchanting image you've woven, deeply evocative in the simplicity of its language. Encore!

Beautiful.

Love the imaginative verses, each creative than the other. Just like a magician's work.

Wonderful pacing and presentation. When writing this, at no time did my hands leave my wrists. See the magic has inspired me.

You draw us closer and deeper into the poem, and into the "icy blue gem."

A wonderful poem.
