A MOON CALENDAR with Time-Space IMAGES and HAIKU created to respond to Dylan Thomas' verse:
HOW TIME HAS TICKED A HEAVEN ROUND THE STARS
DYLAN THOMAS DAY and LOVE THE WORDS challenge
In 2015 the International Dylan Thomas Day was established to celebrate one of the outstanding poets of the 20th century.
Every year on May 14 the visionary poet of Wales is remembered with projects ranging from Poetry to Art, from Music to Videos.
In Dylan Thomas’ official site, Love the Words is a special section for a “global poetry share”, addressed to poets who want to respond to Dylan Thomas’ words.
This year’s challenge is writing HAIKU inspired by a quote from Dylan Thomas’ poem “The force that through the green fuse drives the flower”:
HOW TIME HAS TICKED A HEAVEN ROUND THE STARS.
These words open space-time horizons and have been the source of inspiration to create a lunar calendar where the passage of time is seen through the different aspects of the Moon in the course of the year.
The Old Farmer’s Calendar reports the names given to the Moon by the early Native Americans.
The video MOON CALENDAR FOR DYLAN THOMAS is a collection of Haiku and Digital Collages where the images of the Moon - along with instruments that measure time - are commented month after month.
Sundials, hourglasses, bell towers, clocks of different types (pendulum, cuckoo or table/wall clocks) mark the passing of time in succession.
Here is the list of the Moon's names according to The Old Farmer’s Calendar:
January wolf Moon
February snow Moon
March worm Moon
April pink Moon
May flower Moon
June strawberry Moon
July buck Moon
August sturgeon Moon
September corn Moon
October hunter’s Moon
November beaver Moon
December cold Moon
