What I Hold

what I hold close up s

Words surrounding my head

What I hold what I know
fingers that

Will my dreams ride me blue?
songs echo

I’m behind and out of synch.  I imagine that will last awhile.  Jane Dougherty’s inspiration painting by Franz Marc, above, also introduced me to a lovely new poetic form, the tilus:  lines with syllables of 6-3-1.  I was not the only one inspired to do more than one to make a sequence.

    Lovely poem and painting. I feel a sense of dreamy hope–with a bit of crackling energy, too, like the fingers are snapping.
    Maybe Debussy with a bit of Duke Ellington. 😉

    Have you noticed that you can make three more poems out of the first then the second then the third lines of each stanza? Try it.

    Amazed by what your imagination spun off from Marc’s horses; and “will my dreams ride me blue” is stunning!

    Verse is great, feels alive….love the stitchery over the abstract watercolor…beautiful to the eyes, inviting to the mind looking for meaning in the layers. Thank you for sharing.
