for Lauren Jewell, in collaboration with artist, Leonid Tishkov

Inspired by art installation:


(edited and compiled from original source)


The sky is near.
Open the attic and you’ll see
there next to the wasp nest
rings the blinding light
of the lost moon


Open the closet
there among the old coats, the moon
hides from people


The sky worries,
when will he return?
Where have they taken him?


Come nightfall you discover 
the body of the newborn moon
and help return it to the sky
leaving a mere trace in the snow 


- Leonid Tishkov
