Lavendar Moon

lavendar moon s

we are try
-ing to breathe, desperate
for clean air
uninfect
-ed by greed, ego, exploit
-ation, pollution

the moon does
not belong to you–
she belongs
to the night
sky, the cycle of light re
-turning from the dark

she dances
vast elemental
orbits to
time centered
beyond your indifference, your
vainglory, your lies

For the NaPoWriMo day 7 prompt, a poem based on a news article.  You can find the news story I used here.  I took the photo, above, out my window at dusk last night.

The art is inspired once again by Matisse.  And Los Lobos, with a great video rendition of Kiko.

  1. Kerfe, that moon art is *stunning*. I’d hang that on my wall in an instant! And what a beautiful turn of phrases in that last!
    she dances
    vast elemental
    orbits to
    time centered
    beyond your indifference, your
    vainglory, your lies

    So true. But I think that your moon is lovelier than the one in the sky right now ❤

  2. Opening the moon to new opportunities perfected on Earth, strip mining and pollution.

    From the news article: “a clear path to off-Earth mining, without the need for further international treaty-level agreements” — Wars Without Borders.

  3. I had seen this, but got interrupted and forgot to come back to respond. Your art is stunning here. The moon is was magical–and she definitely does not belong to any of us–especially you know who!
