This is based on Yeats poem "The cat and the Moon ".


HE cat went here and there
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
From moonlit place to place,
The sacred moon overhead
Has taken a new phase.
Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
Will pass from change to change,
And that from round to crescent,
From crescent to round they range?
Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
Alone, important and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon
His changing eyes.

Thank you Nicholas....moonlight seems to do that .. I heard somewhere that one should not look at the moon for too long ....she will take ones sanity but I say .. even sanity depends on perspective .. what seems insane to me is perefectly acceptable to some people .. ..so other than mesmarize I dont think Moon does anything else :)..

A beautiful creation as we are used to, this week the appearance of that amazing black cat makes me fall in love. It invites us to contemplate the moon, magical and mysterious.

Absolutely bewitching Indrani. Shoes that will set her feet a dancing ~ Dancing all her cares away.

I love how you continue to use the same elements in your imagery. The moon and the stars. The lily and the red poppy. The intricate patterning and the looseness of the indigo watercolour background. And now 'The Black Cat' ~ All adding to the magic of your unique signature artwork.

Love the adaptation of the poem too. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Thank you Alison. I love this poem .. especially where he says that the cat wanders alone ,imporrant and wise.. most cats look that way ..and I am having so much fun creating the loose watercolor .. it has a mind of its own . I just stand back and watch ..
