“This weekend, I am introducing Luke Eidenschink, self-taught, left-handed Artist/Illustrator working in ink, from Arizona, USA. Luke has kindly given permission for us to use his amazing piece, Moth-Woman, for our poetic inspiration.”


Moth-Woman Luke Eidenschink Used with Permission

Yarn ball trees unwind
themselves forming a narrow
ribbon of earth. Through this fissure,
she saunters, hands touching
last remnants of her woolen
chrysalis. She watches
her metamorphosis, as hair
forms wings to enfold
her body. In darkness,
she sheathes herself into
this exotic new shape, and wings
her way skyward, leaving
ground behind her.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
