hippest cat...

redux redux bennett and gaga...

'the sky is cryin' look at the tears roll down the trees.' -elmore james (1918-1963)...

a clanging of cymbals...

The breezes of fall
In the flowers
On the bays
Boat rides
A clanging of cymbals
Wind and broken mufflers picking up
Less quiet
Less early morning
Less spring in the air

boat rides...

The beat

Boat rides around the lighthouse
The island
Into the wind
In her hair
A ride a
There the music of it
Dian Krall, Diana Krall
The beat

The beat

a finch on the feeder...

A sway of pink in the sky
This morning
On the tree-line across the bay
No breeze
On Monument Street
And very still
The finches and sparrows not riffing
Too early?
Too late?
Oh! there's one
A finch on the feeder
I feel better
About the pink sway
On the tree-line across the bay

jack oil by shawn costello...

promising fall...

A breeze this morning
Promising fall
Sun painting the movie house
And no rain in the trees

A bee in the rosas
Now come the finches
And a sparrow from a long long way away
In perfect formation
Not like the thistle on the porch floor
Near the Angel dish
The geraniums
And the old Philco radio in the window of the sliding door
Now more bees in the rosas

The sparrow is gone

a hummingbird came this morning...

A hummingbird came this morning
And went
After visiting a red geranium
Finches stood and watched they could barely see her wing
It is cloudy behind the movie house
It's cherubic America's Cup accent aigu
It is very still our there this morning
For a finch in the flower box
Near the end of summer
Coffee's ready!
That hummingbird now I imagine
Is painting a breeze in Chopin's garden
Of sparrows and journeys

at the end of summer...

At the end of summer
Busy street
Finches in the thistle
In the roses and the geraniums
On the feeders
In the Angel dish and the flower boxes
The porch floor
Thistle on the floor
"Long white gloves dripping from her forearms,"
Elegance there
Spiral staircase tent and schooners
Sails and tenders
America's Cup
At the end of summer
Paint on the movie house

And April is not far from now
And this:

a matisse...

Painting heavily in purple and rouge
Wisps mouth brow
And neck and there
A French stream
Light coming through on a gray floor
Portraits in view that day
That time
Painting lightly in purple and rouge

gaby in a matisse mood...

figure out april...

Figure out April
In a solid fog on my window
On the bay
And on the gull on the movie house chimney
The white picket fence and rosa rugosa
Matisse paints in purple
