Today’s sight

This is the view from my window today:

Familiar cloths

My friend the cat

An abandoned basketball

A sunbathing chair

A school building in the back

A horizon of buildings and trees

A clear sky

Cyan

on the horizon

waves of algae dive and float

– blue-green to the eye

your iris sparkling

sensing the light of long days

– a royal azure

hot and dry summer

watching the clouds on a sky

– turquoise lone dreams

up and down

over our heads

discussing a dream

a leaf turns left

turns right

up

down-up

meanwhile we crash

below

bending down

curved

facing down

up-right

left-down

sings a leaf

songs of spring

light green figurine

dancing to the bird

sounds of silence

among us

following

a pavement of grey stones

step after step

bending down

up-down

a scent of sea

in the air

a blowing wind

trembling flowers

short the answer

blowing in the wind

Away

Drum

Hum

Send the sound

Touch the ground

Drum

Hum

Send a noun

Make a bound

And run

Take the van

Go out with your hound

Drum

Hum

Talk as a count

Playing in the pound

And run

Away

To hide in the play-

ground

A bird

Come! through Chi Kung

the sky above, earth below

a bird flies ahead

A slipping poem

a small slip

a large slip

An ambiguous “slip”

An italic slip

A sleeping in the English

A squared slip2

A spaced    s     l     i    p

A remote                                                         slip

Many slips: slip slip slip slip

A slip asking a question: slip?

like a bull

I’m a rather fixed guy

I’m all glue and bricks

I’m all money and buy

Fixed is my nick

name, you don’t dare

who stares at you

who doesn’t care

I’m all fixed and blue

maybe dull

fixing like a bull

promptly glued. Null

Patch

I was seeing a Black Beauty

A Princess with Dazzling Blue eyes

When a Czar appeared

With his Purple Sword

To Kill my Purple Queen

 

Meanwhile

A Wizard makes a prophecy

About une Reine des Glaces

Put on a Blue Fire

 

While Jack Ice drank his Whiskey

And I watched the Aurora

 

I swear this is all Tender and True

And I am not dreaming of Jacob’s Cattle cows
