A Poem by An owl on the moon

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



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…

Even tho I would never get a tat (I have fibromylgia & even my skin hurts all the time) . . . I love well done tats, love to watch televised programs that show masterful tattooing. I love the idea that tats go deeper than skin deep. This could be invisible scars from bad treatment or an underlying current of joy from tapping into the abundance of nature (for me). I enjoy your word play, showing your obvious fun with finding interesting words that sound good together. I love how your message urges us to honor whatever markings another person may have (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

" Let me trace your skin with my halcyon fingers ... " and let her grasp the serenity and equanimity that flows from your thoughts! Tattoos on skin supposedly boost a personality, tattoos on soul are drafts of a memory treasured? Your star studded composition is an emblem of artistry, Craig.

Clever. Very clever Craig! In image, form, style, layout on the page. Reminds me of these books I read, the Splintered Series by A.G.Howard. Pulling all those Alice elements in, the dark, the light, the devious, mischievious lure of something different. Love your twist on this, making it your own. I like seeing an edgier side of you. :)

'Shards *of *sunlit*shadowlands - soul's *autograph* on *skin’s* fabric.. .. .. a* smoked *symbol* panacea -
in* a* world *with *no *maps…'

This extraorindary poem - accompanied by such a vivid graphic. inspires thought to move to another and way out part of space. Maybe its the asterisked highlights added to the words, perhaps sending the whole Wonderland into somewhere created by you that nobody but the invited can ever reach.
