Iridescence …

I saw a feather
at my feet,
such beauty
adrift upon a dusty street.
I placed upon my palm
this mystery of flight
ashimmer in the light.
It guards the secret of the sun;
the rainbow’s unbroken code.
I saw
a fire-flash;
an iridescence –
I touched
that mystic
luminescence –
above a dusty road … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
