I wander in the standing stones,
gather objects for potions:
hemlock parts and gossamer,
eye of toad and an owl’s feather.
A celestial light show sparks
and suddenly, without a flutter,
a moth is trapped
in a halo of moonlight
and I am rapt;
lured by a death head’s
powdered pinion –
a fatal attraction.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Art FLASH/ 55!
Kerry says it is a New Year, a good time to reinvent our FLASH Challenge, and this weekend she has introduced Luke Eidenschink, self-taught, left-handed Artist/Illustrator working in ink, from Arizona, USA. Luke has kindly given permission for us to use his amazing piece, Moth-Woman, for our poetic inspiration.
