Witching hour, welcomed with a sigh,
bare-breasted and ink-stained in the night.
Half in love in this half-life half-light;

pisat O Fevrale navsnryd, dreaming
of the gods. Wanderer, today I died and
died again, and whispered prayers

to clasped hands… until the nestled
droplets fell away like sunrays at dusk;
and when moonrise came, I sang again.
Self-discovery.

your own poetics have done sweet justice to that little borrowed bit. such live, breathing longing in this.

It is gorgeous, I agree. :heart: I think it's Russian, but it may possibly be Czech -- it's a line by a Russian poet by the name of Pasternak. It means something along the lines of Write of it, sob your heart out, sing. :)

'Half in love in this half-life half-light' - I enjoyed the rhythm of this line through its use of repetition and rhyme scheme.

Like a snapshot of an image, this leaves a brief but lasting impression.

I like this. :) There's something very minimalist about it, but it's so pretty; your imagery is lovely. I love the phrase: bare-breasted and ink-stained. The last line is beautiful. :D Great piece!

"Half in love in this half-life half-light" has got to be my favorite line. I just love the alliterative use of "half", which is odd, because usually I don't like repeated words...though I suppose it's different for poetry than prose XD
