NaPoWriMo: Day Twenty-three

Inspired by a picture on the wall of The Art House, “Butterfly Leaf” by Sarah B.

Butterfly on leaf
Multicoloured nectar thief
Sips from bluebell cup
When her fill is taken, up!
Flits skyward towards the sun

Bespeckled Moonglow

My submission to Natural Connections.

I chose to write a poem inspired by the artwork of Russell Moreton.


Bespeckled moonglow
through rain-smeared windows
blurs reality with fantasy.
Azure glaze of lunatic spirit
smoothly drifts heavenward
across darkened cobalt skies.
Virga wisps seed virgin tears.
Indistinct, hazy crescent;
nebulous perceptions deny pure clarity.
