2011 Wandering Pathways … How to get there from here … ramblings and poems

—6/29/11

      unfinished painting on paper

I have been in the studio running my hand
softly over a painting I am working on,
feeling the layers, texture.

It seems a daily presentation — all I can do.

Be quiet, do not react. Be quiet. Meditate.
It is not yet 9 a.m.

Mockingbird has lost the mock
A poet that can not talk
The singer without a tune
A howler without the moon

If Mockingbird forgets it’s chatter
And a poet stumbles over her words
The singer’s hum gets lost in the wind

Hound dog lays down his head again
Mockingbird forgets his song
Laying his head upon a stone
The world is flat
Hope has gone

drought expands
in my mind
at your hand

throughout the acres
in our hearts
dust gathers

where memories grew
now withered thoughts
from this drought of you

It is what it is
And that is all there is
Amen.

I brought you seeds
You gave me flowers
