Giant Pinkie Ring, for Open Link Night

Giant Pinkie Ring

All the answers are in
lemon quartz,
lemonade,
a square pool of sun

dwarfing my finger,
turning it into a supernova
at the end of the line.

This is not subtle beauty.
This is no time to be refined.
It is summer now; I need
all the light I can get.

  1. I’m too busy for poems and comments and yet…this one knocked me over. Apparently I needed this gorgeous visual to carry in my head while I keep in mind that sometimes there is no time to be subtle!

    • Thank you! Once again, I didn’t notice the near rhyme until you pointed it out. 🙂 I claim that my ear is what I use least when writing, but it seems like it secretly asserts itself from time to time.
