Whose Planet Is This?. Photo by Robert Rath from over here at Robert's website.

Day 16's poem had its starting point in this gorgeous photo of yesterday's blood moon by Robert Rath. I played with words and transitions based on sound and/or meaning and managed to find my way back to the blood moon.

Riff on a blood moon

blood moon
cut noon
cup spoon
dub tune
lux tone
flex stone
vexed bones
text moan
lapsed bond
taps wand
traps frond
bats abscond
the rhythm of a couplet is hypnotic
the prism of a public is myopic
the literal and the average are narcotic
the lunacy of language is hematic
