    Is it Tuesday already? (just kidding)

    Loved both of these poems.

    YesNo - Nice little quatrain: 4x8; AABB. Sound/Music, be it nature or produced, does have an effect of turning our hearts one way or another, or, to use a word Ursual Le Guin has used in the past "entrainment":
    Any two things that oscillate at about the same interval, if they’re physically near each other, will gradually tend to lock in and pulse at exactly the same interval. Things are lazy. It takes less energy to pulse cooperatively than to pulse in opposition. Physicists call this beautiful, economical laziness mutual phase locking, or entrainment.
    L2 intrigued me for some reason... what silence do we get from the ground...that of the dead and otherwise past; this reinforces L3 where we laud the now and "praise the day". L4 re-inforces the entrainment from L1, rejected in L2.

    cacian - "sound is a science"... back to entrainment, though I disagree with the "without the chemical appliance" - because sound/music can be organic as well in my opinion.

    "each note" infinity and light in scope (sic)... a delightful insight.

    A tough choice... I'm going with Yes/No as the winner, congratulations to both of you !

    Thank you, tailor STATELY! And cacian and Danik! I like LeGuin's description of "entrainment" as "economical laziness".

    The next subject will be "light" in any sense of that word whether as something to keep the darkness away or something that doesn't weigh too much or whatever else the word is used for.

    Deadline hopefully by the end of July.

    eden

    light
    the garden of eden
    darkness harness
    to be even
    is puissance
    together they make
    the perfect season
    stars align to see them rise.

    lightsome as a dove

    light may be found in the eyes you behold
    in those who feign not, with hearts full of gold
    this light first given to all as a gift
    yet burns bright in those no longer adrift
    such light is best embodied by a child
    whose agency remains yet undefiled

    endure and remain
    ... lightsome through adversity
    ... to life eternal

    Thank you for posting your poems, cacian and tailor STATELY!

    I liked the sound reading of both of your poems. I also liked both cacian's combination of light and darkness to make the perfect season and tailor STATELY's view of light as coming from the eyes of those with a child-like, undefiled heart. From the perspective of both sound and sense both of these poems are worthy entries.

    Since I have to chose between them so the contest can continue, I will pick cacian's poem.

    Congratulations, cacian!

    Green and Sky Blue

    Summerís reckless with its love of green.
    The sky gives blue so bright it goes unseen.
    We breathe each day enclosed in soothing light
    While night awaits with stars and dark between.
