isn't fiction the nuts...

Probably not much noticed
He began scribbling "this is not for publication"
He looked out the window
Pondered
He remembered
He did this in one hour in one afternoon at a wobbly yellow table
In a yellow brick room waving a magic wand
Over a brief part of his life
He thought
"Isn't fiction the nuts"

Flutter the gull
Purples & gold
A breath on her a breath

Monk played notes that were not there

in the autumn sun...

In the autumn sun
On the window glass
Dreams in the piano room this morning
Fly Me to the Moon
Obsessively making the point
Over & over

A memory sings to me

Like Thelonious Monk

Yesterdays

This morning Rosa Rugosa berries in a breeze
Cold orange in the African tree
A boat circling its buoy
Its bowline dancing

song of a cello...

Burgundy strings play on a river
In summer
A boat
Clouds & sails
Green & blue red & peach
Song of a cello
This morning
Sunflowers sway
A light on the street
& over the house
A grey cold & a note on the door
Song of a cello

procrastination...

A thousand words
A thousand paints
Still it is dark
In
Moonlight
Poems to write
&
Paintings to paint
After coffee
Black coffee

like a sinatra song...

The slightest moon is still out
In the fog
In the coming winter
Quiet
Like last night
Calm
Like a Sinatra song

Locked on boats
Locked on the sides of buildings
Calm last night
