So beautiful, this! And so difficult to put words on why. This reaches me on a non-verbal level, as a feeling, something vague. As if putting words on it would make it disappear (like a wolf would, perhaps?). Really love the title, the words, the image, the intangible in all this!
oh, thank you so much!
I’ve been trying to write haiku using the moon names for a few months now — there are so many! and they are so evocative. I have a hard time knowing if what I’m trying to say (or show) comes through, because things are often vague and indiscriminate for me, too, when I’m doing these things. I often don’t know what it is I’m drawing or saying until its done.
here’s a list of the moon names I’ve used so far. I have high hopes of making through the year!
Stunning. I love what you’re doing with the moon names. I tried to do it once a month a few years back and fell off in August, but I was thoroughly enchanted by the names. I still am. I used whirling wind moon (got it from feathers) last week. Thanks for the inspiration–and for the wonderful poetry, of course.
oh, thank you, james!
I somehow missed this comment…
I did see your poems in my email, back during the small stone month. it was nice to see your writing popping up again. I fell off the small stones, but I’m trying to keep up the moon thing. there are some terrific names coming up for march — lizard and little frog, to name a few!
