Moon in Arcturus

 

Flying bird and moon in abstracted scene
Moon in Arcturus 24″w x 16″h acrylic on board

Sometimes a shape

etches itself

into our minds,

a wordless mystery

taking form

before our wondering eyes.

Richly colored tapestry of textured paint

We are left to consider

what that shape

created,

before it whizzed

beyond our sight.
