Wonderland TATTOO

Wonderland TATTOO

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Some tattoos are on the skin... and some the soul…

"




















Desolate lithe designs

with marked gossamer stains

of incandescent rose blush ink…

Shards of sunlit shadowlands

soul’s autograph on skin’s fabric

imprint in Cheshire effervescence…

Inked Wonderland mindscapes

a smoked symbol panacea

in a world with no maps…

Let me trace your skin

with my halcyon fingers

drink the elixir of your stained lips…


© 2016 An owl on the moon



WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.

C Froman,
So many seek and wear the decoration of tatoos. I guess it isn't surprising as people do seek meaning and identity-beauty. Wonderland Tatoo was very inspiring in it's connection with physicality and nature kind of interspersed. It challenged me to say the least. Loved it .......................Blessing to you in your life and work.......................Kathy

The last three lines of this I like the best. Real tattoos, I hate. If God wanted the skin multicolored He would have made it so. Valentine

Thank you dear poet. So hope your autumn brings you multicolored joys all around. :)
when I saw this title "Wonderland Tattoo" i envisioned sweet Mother Nature with a wander for a passionate art for nature, I read your words they kind of high lightened it. Your words are poetic, sincere and rel. You paint a picture very well.

Oh, how magical this was to read. The title really drew me in and I'm blown away by what words & story you've created! Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite movies as a kid, just the thought of sneaking off from responsibilities, falling down a hole & discovering a whole new world. A place filled with constant mysteries & beyond interesting characters. The kind that make you question what all you believe. So precious...and I've also wondered what it would be like if every character was tatted. Great imagination! You really know how to inspire me, dear friend. Keep up the good work.

I thought that through this you were either describing your version of Wonderland and then, at the end, it was like "oh wait" you're describing a human here. And i had to do a sort of double take. I love the imagery and figurative language, friend. The words are so descriptive, the ending romantic and sensual. A beautiful piece.

I imagine that as a poet and creator of stories you will learn of such worlds, more than most.

True. Writing does make one think and become more wise and understanding in the process.
MMmmmmm....so inviting. Sensual and romantic. The alliteration drew me in. The longing is intense and very real. A great write, Craig. Lydi**

A very beautiful visual and emotional poem. The emotions come through, of pain and longing, a desire for life and connection. An outstanding poem.

You can see so deeply in the words, behind the words. I deeply appreciate your thoughts.

You're so very very welcome.
Ah.
Fonts.
Never underestimate fonts.
Sometimes the right font can be the difference between typing endlessly for hours and being stumped after the first line. I think you know what I mean, you have the soul of an artist. And from the looks of it, the creativity of one as well.

Your writing is pretty passionate, it leaves the reader with a little throb in their mind.
Also, kudos for the Pictures you add. They do well in immersing the reader before reaching even the first line.

Thank you for the poem.

tattoos have to be good- like poems
esp. ones on the soul.
