The image here is so strong, especially the moondust...
Clever use of moon dust! Nice 'ku...
So sensuous and full!

What a great image! The moon falling from my mouth... Wow! On that note, time for sleep. Maybe I'll have a cool dream.

I didn't know anything about the ancient image of swallowing the moon. Compelling!
i admire that last line. Yes, full of the senses...
Oooh, dream-like. I really like it.
Fascinating image. I am unfamiliar with the ancient idea of swallowing the moon. I'm googling to learn more.
This is so touching and reflective.
Great work here. Very original and unique!
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.Laurie
Thank you all. The work is influenced by the novel Sassafras, cypress & Indigo by Ntozake Shange, which I recently read for my book club. If you enjoy magical realism, mysticism and figurative language or appreciate women's literature I recommend this work.
