moon stroke

And googling Davies' Moonrise led me to this 1999 Poetry Kit interview with poet Coral Hull...

My mother mostly despised Beethoven and especially his fifth symphony, which I held as the essence of life. She also refused to visit art galleries with me when I was an adolescent, complaining to other relatives that I would stare at one painting for twenty minutes. I remember doing this with ‘Moonrise’ by David Davies. I went somewhere else through his work, although I don’t know how long I was away

A more recent interview: David Prater in Converstaion with Coral Hull

And in one of those moments of found synchronicity I read her prose poem
Pop’s stroke shortly after reading another: Mal at Dick Jones' Patteran Pages...

Strange word, ‘stroke’ - a gentle sleep
and then you wake up,

Comments: moon stroke

I found some blogs I very much like on your roll. One, (can't remember which) has a Moon phase logo (advertising the moon?) which I liked so grabbed. Umm, I wonder where the word 'stroke' comes from?

I can't recall the blog either...but it looks good on yours.
There are some great blogs over there, and out there. I keep finding new ones - which is heartening and a bit scary at the same time.
One day soon the who world and her dog will have a blog.

err - that is, the WHOLE world (and her dog)

Didn't correct this typo because I think the 'WHO' world may be closer to the mark.
