Night Visions (Moon Totem #2)

moon totem 2s

the matrix of my dream emerges
from dark mirrors, casting outlines
of stories on particles
of air—constellated
points of glittered light
following the
movements of
inner
moons

A nonet for Colleen’s #TankaTuesday with synonyms for origin and write.

I did a bunch of these moon totems in 2017 and meant to do more, but the project got sidetracked by life.  I found this one in a drawer…I know the others are around somewhere.  Perhaps they are hiding with the birdlings, also missing since I moved.

    Like a dream–or nightmare–both the poem and collage seem full of sharp points but indistinct dream images. Like you’re navigating through starlight and murkiness. (If that makes sense.) 🙂

    Those inner moons seem to wait to reveal their secrets, just as they’re setting with the morning’s light.

    I love some of your word choices! “Constellated points” is so creative – even though I think ‘constellated’ is your own word, its meaning is so clear. Love it!
