Illume

What could we do

that blue maiden night

when the stars arrived

unencumbered

but offer utterly ourselves:

pale, mortal, dancing?

This painting, entitled “Luminous Darkness” by Beth Tockey Williams, is part of our collection of paired poems and paintings from the Dry Tortugas National Park.
