The Geek Oracle always has a different approach to its messages.

Ella at 100

ella singing s

For Ella

The task of
the basket:  calling
unfinished
collections
together with messages
condensed into song.

The elders
plant wandering seeds,
summoning
the dropped lines
into fertilized pockets,
bringing roots to light.

Cut loose but
not lost.  Walking on
air–a voice–
unclouded,
animated, multiplied,
luminous. Flying.

Today would have been Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday.  I’m pleased to have my drawing and poem included in the anthology celebration “Ella @ 100” .

“The only thing better than singing is more singing.”
–Ella Fitzgerald

Happy Birthday Ella.

Today’s Oracle poem and dot collage are in response to Sue Vincent’s photo prompt this week, “Shore”, below.

life thick and fertile
air listening
rocks murmur wind songs
between
water and light
clouds wander happy
without asking why

Self Portrait #19 (after Klee)

It may or may not still be Selfie Day, but I’ve been trying to get a portrait done for the 23rd of each month for my 100 Self Portrait series.  I’m on to a new artist to imitate, Paul Klee.  This is probably the most abstracted one I’ve done so far–I did my usual mirror pencil sketch and then smoothed it out to imitate Klee’s painting.  I think it still bears a strange resemblance somehow.

And of course I had to ask the Magnetic Oracle for commentary.

Fool (almost me)

I am almost me
listening to colors breathe
secrets laugh
red blue rhythm
born from liquid joy

As these windows open
who will fool
this naked heart?

And I actually managed to do the NaPoWriMo prompt today:  an elevenie poem.

The Oracle was feeling philosophical I guess.  Things do look different depending on context…

how
is this
almost
like that
but
never about
anything
more there?

Ancient Light

Sue Vincent’s prompt this week, “Enigma”, is a photo of two standing stones.  The Magnetic Oracle chose to see them as having their own spirits, rather than being inhabited by malicious or unlucky humans who have been transformed.

earth listens
as verdant air wanders
murmuring

stones breathe ancient light
into roots of
sacred seed

ferocious fever of wild ocean
drinking colored fire

laughing voices dazzle with joy

I have to admit that the Geek Magnetic Poetry Oracle and I do not have the easiest of relationships.  Its message today is short and to the point…(although it may have gone over my head)

with linear force
open space to complete light
stars stunned by joy
