Three Flower Moons

Img 2741
The April full moon is near. It is often called the pink moon, sprouting grass moon or egg moon. I love this glimpse into how cultures interpret the natural world around them. Where I live, spring on the prairie is a great battle between warm and cold, marked with strong wind. This week alone we had six inches of wet snow followed by 80 degree warmth. There is a great change happening. So what does that mean for the moon? My prairie rendition of the April full moon has a hint of pink blossom juxtaposed against the retreating color of frost and fog. It has the feel of something new emerging from a wise and ancient winter. Made with stone, embedded grain, rust, paint and burnt prairie cedar.
