Florida Arabesque

Maya Ellenson is keen on creating unconventional poetry and prose, inspired by what the moment reveals.

Nature's Filigree

Treading on the sky

velvety as a table cloth

in this looming twilight


even the earth is no longer solid

but an extension of the clouds


ethereal as never


hosting a feast of a butterfly

hovering atop the buttonbush


its tiny bursting stars

golden-haired


as nature’s improvised filigree

keeps evolving


the bloody moon

is about to spill across the cobalt sky

like a glass of red wine
