Star Blossom, Part 2

Further images from my new project ‘Star Blossom’, of photo illustrations to accompany the poetry and prose of my uncle Fergus Chadwick.

 Other lives here on earth are alien,
or as good as, unless a silent message is
taken from another body.

Venus, boiled alive, Mercury
hypnotised, in white-hot chains,
forced never to look away.

Their cries are inaudible,
useless their complaints.
If there was music…

It’s in the lines of circling –
leaf-whispers pressed
in rings of a wooden block.

Crescent Moon

Out Late

The crescent moon
and evening star,

as if no sky were ever
as empty as this green

longing that starts
in the ribs, and ends

in your eyes, losing
grief, a mourner’s cloud.

Tomorrow in my head,
thinking of starry spaces.

    Viveca…just brilliant. Went back and had a look at the first post in this series (not sure how I missed it) and your visual interpretation of the poems is outstanding. Just love it!

      More great feedback, thank you so much Edith! It’s been a long time since I have done anything like this, so it’s very encouraging for me to know that you think I have interpreted my Uncle’s words well – I’m very pleased.
