Written in the book of dust

Written in the book of dust
Between worlds
In the midnight days
The wind on the moon
Prophecy good omens
Stardust from the bones of the Moon
Fall over smoke and mirrors
The garden of shadows
Where seekers await
The lovedeath-rebirth
Of goddess initiation

I’ve done this with song titles before, but not with book titels. Equally fun and tricky.

  1. You’ve arranged those titles perfectly. The poem emerges strong as a word adventure. I liked “between worlds on the midnight days”.

  2. Excellent write and use of books! Oh and how I do love Neil Gaiman! Terry too. I like the moon imagery that leads to some fulfillment we all wait, we seekers, the deathbirth-initiation of letting go of oneself to be less, to be all.

  3. I really like the combination of lines at the ending.
    Where seekers await
    The lovedeath-rebirth
    Of goddess initiation
    I think this could be a stand alone poem of its own.
    This is such an interesting prompt to play with.
    And I liked your photo.

  4. I think this is a beautiful example of spine poetry. I’ve never tried it before and found it fun. And I love all these books I’m running into.
