jerry garcia ties...


no smoke mirrors or blue...

Monk
No smoke mirrors or blue
On the black keys white keys black keys
Breath
Big air and motion
To
A note that is not there
A note that is not there
Sound
That note!
It's there!

Monk,
You beautiful man

one lennie tristano's...

Two pianos
Under The Last Supper
Under a tin ceiling painted cream
Between the American flag and the Christian flag
Two pianos
One Lennie Tristano's
Etudes
And
Jazz
And

Love the sun!


*Friday's (July 26) performance class at the Congregational Christian Church.

blue dolphin street oil by jean d...

marsh spring by pat fry...

Last fall's cattails
Have burst their
Bonds -
The tight packed
Seeds ragged now -
Like sheep for
Shearing.

cemetery by pat fry...

The evening's sunset
Lights up tombstone faces
In cemetery row
Its silent ecstasy -
A Summer Revival
In full swing.

beached whale by pat fry...

(found tangled in fish line on Mowry Beach)

When the Fundy tide rises fast
Over the beach -
I like to imagine it wakes
Him from a fitful sleep
And hearing a whale song,
He breaches high
From that putrid grave,
Swimming unfettered
To the pod.

coming! jean's oil blue dolphin street!...

the coffee is cooking...

The coffee is cooking
Rain
And distance
It has been raining a long while
Unbending
That far off horn
Saying
There are rocks and beach
Saying
The coffee is cooking

coming! jean's oil blue dolphin street!...

mowry beach acrylic by pat fry...


that far warning at west quoddy...

That far warning at West Quoddy
A foggy sunrise
Breezes in the Rosa Rugosa
The blue painter's tape waving
No sight of a goldfinch
I hear a crow
The quieting comfort of a foghorn and all this
The stillness of geraniums and cactus
I can write
And the coffee is good

for kimberly's poppy painting...

The red flutters of it
Oh my
This quiet poppy
Quiet
Like the ponds and moons
Mountains
And
Shores
And
Grassy paths along the turquoise road
;
In the fog

kimberly's poppy painting...

fragments:...

I wish I could write Japanese poetry
High snow hills
Ponds
And
Moon mountains

A
Blurred
Memory
Of
Raindrops

And decoration
Orange
And
Flower

And hot grass
Breeze, seas
Poet ease
