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.
