Moon Poem

I've been so low and dissolved, waiting for the latent to surge...feeling downright lunar.

My moon poem:

Over her
ancient face
of milk light
and rime,
shadows in flux
pulse time
and trace
the estuary shallows
pushed in
from the deep.

Small child
she dogs
sees a boat
glow above
the tree,
the weight
of gravity.
Hide and seeking

in thickets,
unraveling tangled
willow switches,
she plays out
the game,
riding dark waves
in a storied wind.

astride the night,
to burgeon
and again.

Shining through
the wax and melt
of millenniums,
she heard
the first voices
intuit her whisper
rippled over
the surface,
a pull to

She has spoken
through waters
and risen saps,
through shoots
and lunacy.
Wizened thin
to a sickle
or dissolved
into black,
her touch
a tug of fingers
felt upon the weft
and root.

Blown full
in atmospheres
of dusk,
she stirs the
heart cup
to a blood spiral
and eggs break
into flower.
Her spell is
wide cast,
a slip silver ocean,
to catch fast
the sensitive
and hold still
of mirrored
change in
her silent ring
of snake song.

Solstice Open Studio

I am having another Open Studio and everyone's invited
to come soak up some holiday cheer, cast trouble in the fire, eat, drink and be merry when I open the studio up for two days in December. The 12th and 13th from 11am until 4 pm.

A warm refuge from winter weather, a place to peruse and poke about and perhaps find the perfect gift for that particular person, the open studio will have new small worx. prints, cards and canvases, small giftie items and various painted tidbits on offer. As usual, sippable liquids, spirits and savory nibbles will be on hand to sustain those who drop by. If you're lucky, the cob oven may even be in operation, weather permitting. Hope to see you there!
