Photoluminescence (Tanka)

Eyes gleam in the dark!

Photoluminescent glow


with diamond crystalline depths…

a cat on the prowl for food.

I love what I call “photoluminent” art.  I don’t know the real word for it, but that word evokes a perfect image for me, so that is what I call it.  And I love that poetry takes meaning from imagery and not accuracy!
