Play. With words. Images. From images. (and words). Juxtaposition. Borrowing. The sound of silence. The dancing of music and time. Nonsense. (and sensibility). Geometry. Story, myth, oracle, dream. Serendipity. What is the question? (no answers, please). Thank you.

azure autumn sky
This exquisite leaf was found on Broadway last week.

For the “On the Road” prompt, A Heart as Clear as Water.
Flowers are flowers, mountains are mountains, I sit here, you stand there, and the world goes on from eternity to eternity, this is the suchness of things. – D.T. Suzuki
A wonderful prompt post including many haiku from the poet Chiyo Ni.

As usual, the Oracle reflected my mood. Thinking of Walter Becker, and the wonderful words and music he made with Donald Fagan.
Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend
Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
When the demon is at your door
In the morning it won’t be there no more
Any major dude will tell you
–from “Any Major Dude” by Donald Fagan and Walter Becker
I was lucky enough to see Steely Dan many times. Each time different and equally wonderful.
That’s Walter Becker on guitar. Forever playing in the Tower of Song.
hello makes people
grow big smiles—the mystery
and power of words
Really? Talking birds?
Me too! Taking flight in seas
This is loosely a response to the Secret Keeper’s Haiku Review prompt for “How to Recount Your Dreams”.
But mostly it’s an excuse to use the birdlings that appeared on my drawing table a few days ago.
I have a feeling that they will be back…
I’ve also posted this on dVerse, open link night.
Several people have told me that my recent comments have ended up in their spam folder. I find comments to us from other people in there as well. Just one of the WordPress quirks–it pays to check it out every few days just in case.
