cold moon

cold moon
the silence
of the carousel
(Second place, Sketchbook kukai, January 2008)

Loved this one Bill. I makes me feel how at peace I felt riding one and let's not forget that moon. What a sweet opal lady she is.

Thank you.

polona and T, you obviously find different things here. I suspect they are all here to be found. There is a kind of peace in the image and a sense of something like desolation as well. Where the emphasis falls is up to you.

I love this one, Bill. A perfect haiku, IMHO . . . Great juxtaposition with the circular moon and the carousel. And when you add the kinetic coldness and the silence to it, there is a bit of magic. Nicely done.

Maybe, the moon didn't want to pay the fare for the ride, so the carousel shut down.

Weird, Pat. Mooned any carousels lately?
