harbinger

harbinger blk s

the blue of
darkness is
a blank canvas

from translucent music
comes
the shadow
of hope

moonbird rising
toward
the center of deep
light

It took me a long time to see the hat in Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above–to my eyes the form on the sign was a magical creature, perched on the threshold.Ā  So I just went with it.

    so funny that I also did not see a hat until you said it – then it was right there! I love your interpretation!

    That is funny that we both used harbinger today. I like the dreamy sense of hope here. I also did not see it was a hat–I thought it was a bird or a cat–or a moonbird.

    You’ve captured the magic of the image in both your words and collage, Kerfe.

    I didn’t see the hat for the longest time either, but a birdlike creature is a strange display. Isn’t that funny? I love how you went with the first impression. šŸ™‚

    At first I saw a cat instead of a hat. Love your interpretation today.
