Here's an artwork and a poem that was inspired by it:
by Henri Rousseau
After the Feats of Wonder
by Tabatha Yeatts
From hidden places, the owls sing out
to gift us with this night,
the owls and the generous moonlight
that pours across the ground to guide us home.
Concealed under the night's song
is the soft sound of our feet walking
contented step by contented step.
I am full and quiet, glowing and whole.
My hand slides through the crook of your arm
as the breeze slips through the tall, thin branches.
