black hole

black hole sun s

the hole keeps digging itself deeper
but there seems to be nothing inside–
the earth has been removed–
is there even air?

there seems to be nothing inside–
no one remembers anything but absence–
is there even air?
no signs or explanation

no one remembers anything but absence,
solid in a way that can only be felt–
no signs or explanation–
we have given it no name

solid in a way that can only be felt,
it has taken everything–
we have given it no name
and yet we keep returning to it

it has taken everything,
trapped us in its invisible poison net–
and yet we keep returning to it
looking for nothing

trapped in its invisible poison net
deeper deeper the blackness grows–
finding nothing,
exposing more of what isn’t

deeper deeper the blackness grows–
the earth has been removed
exposing more of what isn’t–
our holes keeps digging themselves deeper

Anmol at dVerse has us thinking about blackness.

 

Black Moon

The black moon (the second new moon of the month) this week was obviously on the Oracle’s mind.

black moon close up s

sailing the language of shadow
on stormships that shine
like enchanted mist
through dark diamond skys

listening

who speaks in the thousand tongues
of the black moon?

When I went to photograph the painting this morning, the darkness of the image made it hard to get a well-focused picture, especially, interestingly, when I tried a white background.  Light obviously has its own agenda, best to just play along.
