Moon fair

You are a fair
stinging my eyeballs
whilst I wait
for Mercury to fall
the Titans to cry
and tilting shadows
to moor over
conversing stars
impatient to die
and reborn a thousand times.


Art by Johann Peter Hasenclever.

    With rare exceptions I am not a fan of video/film/etc music – for me it ‘goes’ well enough with the film/video but rarely stands alone as music. But it seems to have prompted some beautiful words from you, not for the first time, and as usual your choice of art to accompany it is impeccable. I can imagine you in the picture.

      We have this too in common. That is why I turn to paintings/art and music. I remember a painter explaining how he paints music and draws sounds. Also “a painting to me is primarily a verb, not a noun” – Elaine de Kooning. I had this is mind when “drawing” my poem. 🙂
      Thank you very much, dear Roger! 💜
