Cosmic Curiosity

How curious can rabbits be?
Imagination and bunnies
run riot beneath a canopy
of stars, dodging the full bright
of a dazzling moon to catch
a distant twinkle before
it crashes and burns.

It’s not counting rabbits
but constellations that send
us to sleep, prehistoric
slideshows projected
on the inside of day-sore eyelids
while we swing with rabbits
from star to star in our dreams.

Star Gazing Rabbit

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Poems in April: Art FLASH! In April

For this month’s art collaboration, Kerry has introduced Jason Limberg, and American artist who specialises in pen and ink drawings, which can be seen on Instagram @jasonlimberg, on Facebook or the Jason Limberg website. 

I love this ‘Stargazing Rabbit’ and the comment by Jason Limberg:

“I like to envision the rabbits of the world being interested in the cosmos and night sky. I’m very fond of how smart, feisty and full of personality rabbits can be, so of course they would love to sit in wonder underneath the stars.”

  2. This is gorgeously rendered, Kim! ❤ I love the idea that “It’s not counting rabbits but constellations that send
    us to sleep,” 😊

  3. I love everything about this poem. As an insomniac and a keeper of bees, I encourage clover in our lawn along with other spreading “weeds”, which my husband hates. The thoughts of prehistoric slide slows I feel deeply.
