NEW FEATURE: SYNERGY: CALLING ALL WRITERS WHO ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS I will feature your work photos and writing individually on the Wombwell Rainbow. A special feature for you alone. Please DM/message me if you’re interested. Photo essays are great, poems should accompany one of your images that inspired them. Poems within the photos are also great, such a haiku, and so forth. Any theme you choose, at the moment. May get more specific as time goes by. Experimental work most welcome. Our fifth Synergy is from Frogg Corpse.

The photo taken by Frogg Corpse is of Asters (White Heath) taken September 17th, 2021 and shot in Louisville, Kentucky in William Taylor’s backyard.

Pandæmonium in White Heath

Lost was I, to the enchantment ov sprigs,
weaved from the pluckings of their nest.
roosting autumn — Persephone throned
aster-melting twilight: calm.

Thoughts of wind, which name drew
threshing petals encircle strife,
offering wheat: by nysian mule
stripped near summers dried.

Terra cotta touch
pomegranate pressed
unceremoniously bound;
love undying — tithed to omen
until new winter coughs-back-out.

Athenastras Coveting Ostara

Bittersweet · seeds consumed
elysian well spitting alba,
golden roads balmed by chariot
anointing silver-lakes in parting

Caressed by Artemis,
mourned by Nyx,
garnet leaves:
trickle into the temple of ever sleep.

Bricked hands wed with balefire
Magic conscripted near Hecataea
Three dog moon
Observance: sorrows torch.
