Devilish Detail

Devilish Detail
I hide myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too --
And angels know the rest.

I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness.

- Emily Dickinson

le rouge et le noir...for hidden fears and feelings of loneliness...together with a moon crescent : nice double poetry

Shi* has replied to Christel Ehretsmann
The crescent: waning moon of the old goddess ... to be reborn as the maiden ... but tonight she is the mother, in all her glory.

An interesting reading, one that I certainly wasn't conscious of ... often the best insights ... one of the rewards of artistic expression.

Loneliness ... well, yes, I know that one from time to time ... :)

of course, it could symbolise any one of dozens of gods and goddesses ... Shiva, Isis, Venus ... all have the crescent moon ... Islam has the rising crescent ... one of humanity's oldest and most powerful symbols.

In this case, however, it is simply the curve of a breast.

the old goddess ...I've been looking for her in myself for so much time ...after having read fullfilling writings about her !....I've felt her inside me when my soothing personal power spreads over me...the great reigning mother goddess in her triumphant glory...

Wow ! somebody who refers to her here !

I hadn't seen the curve of a breast , and am reading Emily's poem quite differently ..I love Art's supreme wealth leading to unexpected realms..

The goddess has been a dream, a love, a guide since childhood ... something within, yes. A continuing exploration too. Unexpected realms are often the most fulfilling.
