Moon by Katrina K Guarascio


Katrina K Guarascio

even the moon
cracks with time

her radiation
limited to the
turquoise of space

so how can we
divine creatures
of mortal world
not expect our
beauty to drip

sky to branch
branch to leaf
leaf to earth
from us

This poem was inspired by the artwork, “Enchanted Moon” created by Paulina Lopez, displayed at StrangeFlock Gallery May 2019.
