“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

― Antonine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Love and Understanding support creativity, that essential human activity. And a small dose of that can unleash a flood of joyful activity on my part. In gratitude i will post the following right now and edit it tomorrow.

short poems in the rough from today, Friday.

Morning walk

Ash leaflets lie

Zigzag on the pavement

Purple up-gold down

Pasted by the rain


Hands flying, happy chit-chat, dancing feet

A mind wreathed in smiles

 Remembering three hidden words;

 One line of worry crosses my face.


Scrutinized, at risk of going down in flames

Bone aching numbness stretched taut

Cradled in dreams

 Opening Night

Yo Yo Ma and Dvorak

Accompany the purr of my diesel

What color would paint the sky?

The dark shadows beneath the trees?

A pale disk of beaten gold hangs

Suspended in a sea of deepening azure

Anchored by scarlet and flaming golden hills.

Now a bright rectangle of light

marks the gallery door.

Inside talk and wine spill mindless of the night.

Artists pin colored ribbons on empty images.

Stomachs and egos are stoked and stroked.

I dream alone

Marked by the moon and the cello.

 Angel in the dust
