Things the Moon Told Me Diptych
Hand-spun, knitted piece using a painted clay face created by Lyn Belisle and found objects. Poem written on the ribbon woven through reads:
Things the Moon Told Me
She told me I was wise
that I carry All History.
One needs Silence to hear it,
Hindsight to see it.
She told me I was All Mystery.
Wear gray, be invisible.
Wear red, be strident.
Wear black, be the Void.
The moon shared so much with me;
She told me enough to fill the sky.
It is secret and it is not,
For she tells everyone the same thing.
It becomes your secret when it is deciphered
in your own, unique language.
