Tears of the Moon

IMG_6353 (2)

Tears of the Moon stream down evaporating in the abyss;
Memories of a blue planet rising and setting echo silently
off the Sea of Tranquility, they are quickly swallowed up
in fiery canyons and portals of a whole new world.
People have been gone for eons,
obliterated when the earth threw a world-wide tantrum
blowing its stacks // spitting fire and ice over everything
ridding itself of the leeches, ticks, and bedbugs known as humans.
Now its a new dimension of colored portals exuding light.
Silence speaks volumes on this Third Rock from the Sun.
The moon still shines, but the echo of voices is lost forever

Tears of the Moon painting: Dwight L. Roth

Today at d’Verse, Merril asked us to write a poem that includes some form of the world Echo. I decided to turn my painting into a sci-fi piece.

  1. Now its a new dimension of colored portals exuding light.
    Silence speaks volumes on this Third Rock from the Sun.
    The moon still shines,

    These are beautiful, evocative lines.

    Dwight, do you have a challenge running with your paintings as prompts? If not, I suggest you start one.

      • When all else fails to inspire, I always go to my photos and sometimes to my paintings for inspiration. They never let me down. I had not thought of it as an Ekphrastic Painting, but you are right it was the painting that gave the inspiration… along with your interesting prompt!
