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.

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

    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! 💜

  6. It is beautiful in a rhythmic, passionate way. The painting makes it more intense in way of the passionate.

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
