“Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye–it also shows the inner images of the soul–the images on the back sides of the eyes.”
winding beneath the
tangles of neural pathways
I follow myself,
moonlit shadows reflecting
mirages deep, heavy, dark
Jane Dougherty’s challenge this week included the Munch painting above and the words
winding – moonlight – follow – heavily – path
I took a few liberties, but then I always find Munch to be darkly ambiguous.
So this is it…I did it…30 poems in 30 days. Considering I didn’t write 30 poems in the past 2 years, I’m feeling good. I do have to give a nod to Jane and the WordPress poets she has connected me with for encouragement and support, and also to Charlie at Doodlewash, for inviting everyone to share his month of celebratory days, giving me instant inspiration for every day of the month (I participated a little over half the time).
Now I need a break!
