“Le Stelle Splendenti”, painting and poem by MIA BARKAN CLARKE, New York Link: http://www.miaart.com/ (copyright Mia Barkan Clarke) LE STELLE SPENDENTI As your luster lingers you leave your mark a pungent sparkle like bubbles popping fresh dew on bare skin awakening— a bright orange sunrise at Primavera’s dawn drenched with the scents of currents, magnolias and fresh cut grass after a long, hard rain You leave your imprint— a trail of footsteps on spongy sand leading a path to where sea shells come to be gathered by young children to be painted blessed and sanctified sentimentally kept in a sacred, secret place storing memories to be reflected upon through the many years to come.
