A Strange Beauty

I consulted the Oracle with Colleen’s #Tanka Tuesday words–creepy and color.

The Oracle is definitely tuned into World Weather.  The poetic form is etheree.

This
eerie
sky moans in
shadow music–
purple languages
of dreams drunk on black blues–
stormmist spraying chanted screams
on mad frantic whispering winds–
unrisen suns sleepwalking beneath
a moonless sea crying beauty and blood.

The art shows the underpainting on the left, and the finished painting photographed in two different lights, middle and right.

    Those final lines are beautiful and eerie! Yes, she was completely tuned in. When isn’t she? I really like that painting too, like a dark moon.

    A stunning change with the overhead light. The poem is stunning too, it was a double-take for me when I scrolled back and it sunk in that you were working within the boundaries offered by the Oracle.

      Thanks Janice. I’m working with this iridescent watercolor that has so many dimensions. It’s challenging and also illuminating to make it work equally well in different lights. As to the Oracle…She is a force of nature all to Herself. (K)

    I love the frantic flow of your Etheree. It was as if it was building up to something. Very good! Loved the art too. They paired well together. 😀
