mother moon 

silently,
   through layers of leaves
                        still holding on
                                    i spy your
                                          sparkling,
                                             spherical,
                                                           light

    Wonderful S-sounds! I admire you for keeping this daily commitment going. This is the way to build a daily practice.

    I’ve voted! Love this ‘advertisement’ for that ‘sparkling’ moon, Michelle, and for ‘spooky’ Halloween. The neighborhood is awash with skeletons and wispy ghosts!

  3. Beautiful, beautiful Ss. That sound is so fun to play with. I love it. Your ink for Day 25 is amazing. Wonderful texture and color in it. I spy the moon too!

    Beautiful! I’ve enjoyed reading and seeing your art and poems for Inktober.

  5. Michelle, your illustrations captures the lure of a full moon perfectly and your poem is a sensational tribute to letter S. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve really been enjoying your Inktober pieces, Michelle. Happy Halloween to you!!

  7. LOVE this bright full moon – makes me think of the one we walked under here Wednesday. And makes me wonder about all the silent bats living in trees in our neck of the woods. This time of year we don’t see them flying around low to scoop up bugs in the air, as they do in intense July-august summer, swooping across our pool. I had almost forgot about them! And how could that be, with Halloween upon me? I am a big fan of your “mother moon” & the poem that matches it. Appreciations for the gorgeous Halloween card to us all!

  8. Nice poem! The other night I was taking photos of that sparkling, spherical light through tree branches.

  9. There’s something so magical about seeing the moon through the trees. It’s as if all you need to do is climb the tree in order to reach out your arm and touch that silent, sparkling, sphere. You’re almost to the end of inktober, Michelle—anything planned for November? 😉 HOPEFULLY we’ll have something to celebrate on 11/6!

    • I hope so Michelle. Hmmm plans… just trying to keep up. I’m prepping for a holiday show for the next 2 weeks, along with sending in submissions for the SCBWI Prairie Writer’s and Illustrator’s Day conference I just attended over the weekend– and oh ya, I’m teaching 5 mornings Monday – Friday till mid December– a bit too full for me presently.

    Beautiful poem and illustration! I spent a fair amount of time trying to capture a photograph of the moon through the trees early one morning this week. (Failed!) How wonderful to have the talent to capture it in paint and words! Well done!
