Sun bright

And I rub my fingers over shadow edges

Feeling the depth of yesterday.

Stepping out of the way,

Allowing the moment,

Attentive,

Wondering what’s next.

Saw her before,

Quiet steps on the side of the road,

Waiting for passing traffic.

Only seen through coincidence

Of the day,

As if brought to life

By a sound.

Bits falling from the past

Gather dust on today

And we pray for strong winds.

SHOUT OUT March 16, 2011

Saw him downtown by the Art Institute and

He shouted to passers by that beauty is

Within and I thought to hold him close,

Comforting that part of him desperate to

Connect with others so afraid and unsure

Yet all I did was sit there on cold steps

Knowing every day I shout out as he.

SINGULARITY March 7, 2011

I cannot predict the way this poem will end,

Words not yet arrived, sounds not yet heard,

Childhood memories swirling through a

Brain conditioned to grab brass rings,

All affect the tone and direction and

Scenes seen through vacation-tinted windows.

Programmed twists and turns?

Calculated creativity?

Leaves fall as directed by nature,

The spot they land unknown.

And that is how this poem begins.

FLUCTUATES March 6, 2011

My personal exchange rate,

The value I give to the forms I build,

Fluctuates second to second.

 

Stability is a shoreline

Undisturbed by wind,

And a gooey scum gathers.

MOMENT OF RIGHT January 30, 2011

I was there when the light turned on

And handshakes closed our deal.

It was the only moment of right,

One time we thought it would work.

ART January 28, 2011

And they would have it a thumb inspired us all,

Opposable to grip and swing and improvise.

But better to posit a face in the ground,

Seen and wondered and worshipped.

Lines gently traced, image reinforced,

Gradually the face appears and it is

Art,

Not a thumb that brings the conscious to life.

Crunchy numbers

The Leaning Tower of Pisa has 296 steps to reach the top. This blog was viewed about 1,000 times in 2010. If those were steps, it would have climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa 3 times
