Luminescent Succession, Photography and Poetry
# <center> Luminescent Succession </center>
<br>

a retiring corona is interred beneath a brilliant horizon
a painted and surreal abdication of a heavenly sovereign
it’s a breath-taking pageant worth sitting still for
crosslegged on the edge of zen
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;exhalation bound to the late spring warm breeze

<br>

cornhusk silken strands of hair 
	pulled along with delicate tenacity
the heavy drift of japonica perfuming the seaside dusk

a trail of sand dollars 
leads the way 
to the tide’s edge
soft swells and a glimpse 
of blue-sheen scintillans
herald the nighttime litter bearer 
of the dimmer empress

<br>
<br>
<br>

the coronation of the day’s successor begins
<br>

<br>
a heron leaves the water’s edge
 takes flight and returns to nest
little fish in shallow waters 
find crevice and cranny to sleep and hide
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;the wind settles
night’s slick oil calms crest, surge and splash
the rectangles of sky and water blur, become one
the accession and transfer of sway is done

<br>

<br>

La Reina Nocturna 
	is a luminescent curved fingernail tonight
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;an absolute, seductive
	resonating ivory vane, beckoning
that waylaid mariners might drop anchor in dark harbours
awe in the goodwill and beauty of her shimmering court
take shelter beneath her divine shield; claim calm and rest
