I am a bit behind, but wanted to submit to Poets United's Poetry Pantry. Also, the Imaginary Garden's Tuesday Platform.   My son is in the hospital, the last time he had an episode-was in 2016. His doctor admits they really don't know what exactly he has.  It is related to a rare muscle condition...so, if you could add my son, Larry to your prayers I will be eternal grateful and return the favor~    Thank you!


I cast my lens
wishing for Fresh eyes
threaded by moonlight's silver 
I dangle my Fish eye
holding my breathe
dandelion fluff tugs my line as
my soul's aperture collects
visual poetry.

I collect windswept, wet, and still life chapters
woven into the leaves of my poems
I use painted light in 
colors I Fancy:
amber pearls, soft blue blanketed skies, and 
mulberry shadows.

Sometimes, catch of the day 
Flows and swims in my mind's eye
waking my senses to leap
like frogs, birds, fish, grasshoppers and kangaroos.
I Filter my composition
Framing my happy accidents.

I chase the birth of a buttercream rose
and Focus today, on the Prelude's pitch
I hope to catch a happy ending as
 citrus kisses bid the 
 horizon adieu until 
daylight's credits-Fade. 

Everyday I point and shoot penning
romance, history, Fiction, and Fantasy. 
wisps of gossamer wings, misty fog, 
and crystalline flowers
Filters my perception. 
I weave translucent adventure
with dialogue.
It is up to you to hear, sift and 
collect your Feelings. 

-Ella Wilson


Prayers for sure!

And I am completely in love with this beautiful and surprising poem.

Ella, so very sorry to hear your son is in the hospital again. Extra prayers for him.
Sherry Blue Sky said…
Your poem is very beautiful. I m so sorry Larry is having another episode. It is especially worrisome when the doctors dont know what is going on. Have specialists looked at him? You need to get past the general practitioners, maybe an internal specialist. You must be so worried. Keep me posted. Thinking of you, Ellie.
Definitely prayers for your son!
Mary said…

I had to come over and read your poem on your blog. Also to remind you that Tuesday is an open link day at Real Toads, if you want to share.

So sorry to hear about your son....I will certainly say some prayers for him. Take care of you both....
Jim said…
A nice read, Ella, especially with all the polite F-words. Will pray for your son, and for you. Getting in to Duke's system was an a swere to prayer in itself.

I love the delicate and fanciful quality of this piece. It's an enchanting depiction of the pursuit of creativity. Lovely stuff.

Prayers and goodness headed towards Larry and your family. I hope the episode is brief, the doctors are wise, and recovery is smooth.
Love the flow. Writing poetry can be like fishing, fishing in dreamtime while awake.

My son was realized and two days later back in the hospital. So, today there is a MRI and muscle biopsy-yes, on a Sunday-
The Dr's are stumped...
