Eerie moonlight lingers
among broken trees
and last night’s feathered singers’
descend into kaleidoscopic
dreams, leak into pointillistic
skyscapes of fading stars,
of dew and dawn
and the breath
of a brand-new day.

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Poetics: New Year – New World
Mish is our host today, with poems by Rumi and Jo Harjo, and the invitation to wave a magic wand, create and describe a ‘new world’. She says we can write from a general perspective or focus on one particular scene, but we should avoid a specific political view, keeping it simple or taking our readers to Utopia.
