away from city sounds and lights
a spectral owl waits
for the untethering of the moon.
Moored with the boats,
she floats, horns above water,
her light spilling into a river
speckled with fishy stars,
anticipating her ballooning
release once inky darkness
floods the city’s streets and bars,
extinguishes the lights
of buses and cars.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Art FLASH! / 55 in October
For this weekend’s art collaboration, Kerry has introduced an illustrator in ink and purveyor of magic, McMonster, which she says is a perfect choice to set the tone for October. She has shared a one-minute clip, which encapsulates his unique style of painting with ink, and McMonster has given permission for us to use this amazing untitled commissioned piece. I chose to write a 55.
