Seer


“Let twilight purity/lure you/with/opal blue illusion”—Witness, Ellen Dionna



Here is my opal-blue illusion: seen


at once--cyan blue,

--another, threaded

with amber,


or translucent egg white,

like the eyes

of the half-asleep cat.


This opal

in my open palm

I only see


what I can see

from this distinct angle,

I can't know


or take it in

all at once.

I must


trust that all

the colors

are knowable


and do the work

to shift my weight,

gently,


to make slight

adjustments

in my seeing,


and hold hope

that what I discover

there


dwells awe and delight.
