[ ARIADNE / DARK DARK SHINE ]
"No enchanted sword or mirror—how much braver to pocket the spool of thread, head out, put your finger to a pulse and count. A puzzle sometimes, which simple thing reveals a boon.” The question posed, "labyrinth or circle?”.
. . . vibrant, cut-shining poems . . .
– Virginia McClure/Fovea
Where Squirrels play — and Berries die
And Hemlocks — bow — to God.
. . . and I thought love would always be
that brilliant on the wing and wild.
Ibykos/Last Sun in the Treetops, 6th Century B.C.E.
preamble/labyrinth (or circle?)
the arcing thread —
discovered in an old sewing basket.
[who sews nowadays?]
no enchanted sword or mirror —
how much braver to pocket the spool of thread —
head out — put your finger to a pulse and count.
a puzzle sometimes —
which simple thing reveals a boon.
