~~~ Myria ~~~

Updated on October 12, 2013

~ Myria ~


Once upon a time, before she appeared amidst emergent splendour, when vigour of breath was devoid of essence, and life emptier than the twelve lunar seas, and thoughts yet unformed, lost in veils of Cygnus and clouds of Magellan, sequestered stars of distant dyad gave birth to a dream, swaddled in a bay of rainbows.


Slender crescents of inferior conjunction served as her brow, reclining aloft effulgent Gemini as her twinkling eyes; the Milky Way, knitted, and interlaced with pearls, arrayed her dazzling dress, with rings of Saturn aligned as her diadem. Andromeda furnished her seat where she reposed in masquerade, as an intergalactic stranger harmonized into a majestic Princess of the dusky skies, created, then escorted via her loving Father’s chaperone, who came to thee every eventide of sundown, without fail.



I contemplated my bride, more beautiful than the nightfall before, sway and waltz, in the sliding supernova of glowing auric and saffron dancing shoes, exhibiting an ageless face, concealed by magenta nebulae as her rouge. As I grasped for her, living amidst unreachable drapes of endlessness, my Libra’s kiss was ported upon solar winds only to touch upon her fiery lips after a thousand future generations had passed. Thenceforth, this aerial pageant, filled with vapours and pneuma, took her bow, whence to fade, stepping into a callow, virgin daybreak, to take her reticent sleep within chambers of blank renown.

      Whew, dearest Romeos,

      I love your breath of Fire here, Myria! Stunning imagery painted in your words as well as the actual imagery. I will have to come back to read your masterpiece here again when my mind is not so tired from the day and I am fresh to enjoy this wondrous piece even more.

      Up and more and sharing.

      Sweet dreams and hope your weekend is marvelous.

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hello Mhatter99,

      Just a musing on how He may have created the visible heavens, before the show began, and we first set foot upon His stage.

      Hi Kim!

      Happy that it could lend temporary transportation to drop you off at a place more desirable than where you currently were before reading. You're most welcome, and thank you for floating over and spending time with my thoughts.

      Have a lovely couple of days of rest(hopefully).

      Good Evening wetnosedogs!

      And it's constantly a pleasure to have you come by, which I value greatly.

      Sending a belly rub to each of your dastardly doggies of delightful dandy.

      I always enjoy reading your blogs and HP articles Lisa - they are so cleverly constructed, highly informative and offer much reading variety about subjects which really matter to the man and woman on the street. I don't know if you have ever written for a magazine, but I reckon, in my opinion, that you could easily do such and even trump some of the inferior narratives which are out there with the many inspired sweeps of your attention-grabbing pen/keyboard.

      Enjoy a beautiful weekend dear Lisa, and thank you for such amazing comments.

      Best Wishes,

      R.Q.

      Greetings Romeo. Your quill never fails to delight me with beauty. I saw the title of this poem in a post and thought I would stop by to read. It is Heavenly and breathtaking. I so enjoyed reading.

      You're really kind Phyllis and thank you for stopping by for a read here today; I hope you are in good health still and enjoying your grandchildren in Nevada - must get pretty sultry there this time of year.

      Kind regards to you and your family for an exciting weekend ahead.

      Thank you, Romeo. It is pretty sultry here this week. Temperatures are high 90s to 104. I am healing quite well from my back surgery, do exercises every day following my therapists instructions. Grandchildren are growing and so enjoyable. My grandson graduated from high school last week. He wants to go on to a culinary school - he already is a good cook and knows his herbs and spices.

      Best regards to you and family. Blessings to you.

      That's fantastic news all round dear Phyllis and genuinely pleased that you are on the up-and-up. Your grandson has graduated; brilliant news! you must be made up that he is in possession of the confident surety he needs in order to attain his laurels in the culinary field; perhaps he could whip you all something up in the kitchen to celebrate :)

      Thanks for your blessings and hope that the physical therapy isn't too much of a bind for you and that you make a speedy recovery.

      Hey R.Q. Another wonderful piece of poetic art. You have described her beautifully and as extra special. Your work is greatly admired, appreciated, distinctive and unique.

      Don't know how I missed this one; it's so hard to keep up with everything these days. Came across to read this after reading the comments on one of manatita's hubs!

      I love this; you always transport us to the ethereal and have such a unique style of expression, as though we're whizzing through the universe. Exquisite!

      I hope you resolve the dispute and move on; it's not pleasant to have such things happening, leaves a bad taste, doesn't it? I was asked by manatita to give support but I don't like being 'dragged' into a dispute of which I know nothing! I love your poetry and you are high on my list of hubbers here, always will be.

      It's good to have you come by Ann; it must be scorching hot where you are - we're going to make the most of it in the north-east while it lasts - being typical British weather you never know what's around the corner.

      I don't blame you not wanting to get involved and dragged into a dispute; I'd feel pretty uncomfortable about it too if the shoe was on the other foot so to speak - I heard that quite a few were approached to lend him support by his e-mails but hopefully, this unsavoury business has been put to bed now.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the read and thank you, as always, for your kindness and encouragement and hope that you and your family enjoy the lovely sunshine this week.

      Take Care;

      R.Q.

      Yes, it has been quite a hot one today. It's the humidity I find hard to put up with but I love the sunshine! Have been for a walk down our shady canal.
