Poet’s Corner – The Flower Moon

Through the haze and quiet veils
Of overlapping clouds
We plant daylilies
As we dig spaces in unison
Aligned like the stars
In miniature markings.
Mud flows along the branches of trees planted
Creating rivers of melting tones
In many colors like an abstract design.
Cupping the earth with both hands
And kneeling in sparkled light
Anticipating the flower moon to move into earth’s shadow.

Poem, “The Flower Moon,” and artwork, “Traces,” by Marsha Solomon
