April poetry challenge day 2

Jane Dougherty Writes

Inspired by Kerfe Roig’s painting Alterations. You can read all of the contributions on Paul’s site here.



I dreamt there was a moon


Such a moon as this
a desert of red-gold sand

how the light
like water leaking from lunar holes

and then the earth
our tender blue
that fills fuller of creeping blackness
with each sun.

Moon reflects light not rottenness
corruption at the flawed heart
or diseased skin

cloaks us in borrowed heroism
as we wade through choking seas
reaching for the stars.
