Haiku Oracle Challenge, Day 18

Day 18
Oracle card + haiku cards


coolness of the melons
this old village
moonlight slanting

Left is my oracle card for the week. Right is the card I drew to try to clarify the meaning of the first (given it was the second week I pulled it in a row!) The haiku – shrug? Not sure any of it is clearer. I’m definitely missing something here.

. . .

I am seeking sweet relief (cool melon) from the tired old-trodden path. The slanted moonlight made me think of the rising moon or the setting moon. So perhaps that it’s time to be done with these old ways, these old oaths, and in doing so I’ll find sweet relief? The end of the illusion. It’s setting.

. . .

I guess perhaps I know more than I realise. The first fight for love is always within you. If I don’t think I’m worthwhile, if I don’t think I’m deserving of being nourished and cherished, loved and appreciated then how am I inviting others to meet me? 

This village is old. And it’s time to move on. Be gone before the sun rises.

The Moon String

I’ve been wanting to experiment with images that I’ve collected via Instagram and pairing them with fragment poetry. Yesterday I took the leap.
The above is the digital mock up of this…

…which in time, I hope, will become a physical poem in its own right, based on the digital.

Art goes round and round. And the words swirl in a dervish with it.
