Illuvial We Are

an acrostic poem

By Gina C.Published about a month ago 1 min read
Image created with Midjourney

Even in this dwindled aura, in our

Chaos--on this dim, unkindled, sallow road to Oz and through it all--we become more


Illuvial we are--like the wayward roots that spiral, earthward, of the Night

Phlox and the patient Passiflora. Through the sentiment and

Sediment--in the damp decay and moss--We grow:

Even in this temporary day-loss--in this homemade, pinholed box (that we’ve inanely) opened of Pandora.

Author's Note: While treasure hunting for "I" words, I stumbled upon Illuvial. I found it to be a stunning.

Midjourney had a hard time representing a homemade Pinhole Projector that many use to view the solar eclipse. Ultimately, however, I like how the image captures the idea that something mysterious and magical has been unleashed. 🫣

    I loved this line "Chaos--on this dim, unkindled, sallow road to Oz." I feel that this is what is happening to us (society).

    Illuvial--it's not always unhealthy to sink into the mud, eh? Well-wrought!

    I didn't only learn what illuvial is but I also learned what are phlox and passiflora. You always teach me new words! Your Acrostic was breathtakingly beautiful and your images were stunning!
