Ivory Pearl

Charlotte Oakley

An effervescent pearl, floating in the dark eclipse,

changing, slowly changing.

A bouquet of jasmine, clasped by the cobalt blue.

A curved orb of the night, illuminating one’s path.

Leaves everybody stopping, staring in awe.

A crescent tied off with ivory,

Gleaming, shining, luminous through the night

Slowly fading into a curve, frosted with icing sugar.

Darting into carved windows, dancing around the globe.

Providing light, to fill the night from darkness and gloom.

But how do you feel? A balanced ball, with no light in


Except your own.
