Drawing Constellations


Drawing constellations in skies of dream,
landscaped as colors growing wild, extreme,
pulsing surrounding vibrations unseen,
in star-gathered moonlight, whispering beam
unconscious, unlimited, in between

Continuing my recent star theme…I actually did this awhile ago, but I’ve been tweaking the poem on and off.  This is for Jane Dougherty’s last poetry challenge posted back in the end of September.  The poetic form was her own invention:  a single stanza of five lines of ten syllables each, and the five end of line words all rhyme.   Here’s the artwork she provided:


I miss Jane’s prompts.

    Your collage could be her spinning thoughts. I like the way you make the rhyme drive the wheel round for another turn. And the imagery of stars, spinning off into space is lovely. I miss having the energy for the prompts. Maybe when it gets warmer…

      Thanks Jane. I have done so much work that I like, inspired by your prompts. You have a touch.
      But I know how much energy it takes, especially to put everything together each week. Maybe just every once in awhile?

    I really like rhyming poetry and I love this. And the spider web in the center looks like crochet. The whole thing is very lovely.

    I love this–art and poem.
    I had forgotten this form that Jane invented. I miss her prompts, too.

    Your poem is wonderful, Kerfe! And I like both of your art pieces. Your first one reminds me of a kaleidoscope. 😃
