Harvest Moon

Weeping wisteria,
the moon fruitfully round.
Heavy hysteria,
she clouds her celestial body
inside a gauzy gown.

Darkness hardens sky to ground;
limp leaves shrivel blades to wings.
Talons root below the mound,
a reservoir of seeds;
Autumn caws when it sings.

Fanned feathers form lunar craters,
a bounty to those that receive.
Orb of the night,
procreator;
a cauldron about to conceive.

    1. Thank you. I will let the artist know. I met her on Twitter, as she posted this print saying, “I love my own art.” I messaged her, “I do too. Can I write about it?” The best.

    1. Thank you ever so much for this kind comment. I enjoy having a purpose in mind, and with this piece it was to do this artist’s gorgeous print justice. I’m not picky about how my writing sparks, so lots of flames are possible.
