Common Inspiration--Uncommon Creations.14

Lunar libration with phase2

The moon is indiscriminate.
She shines benevolently
even though yesterday
I called her

Perhaps I've got it all wrong.
Her magnanimity
might reveal more about me than her.
To wit:
my insignificance.

The theme of my 2013 National Poetry Month Project is 

"Common Inspiration--Uncommon Creations." 

Each day in April, I will feature media from the Wikimedia Commons ("a database of 16,565,065 freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute") along with bits and pieces of my brainstorming and both unfinished and finished poems.

I will be using the media to inspire my poetry, but I am going to invite my students to use my daily media picks to inspire any original creation: poems, stories, comics, music, videos, sculptures, drawings...anything!
