clouds increase, decrease–
signs of change thickening–
sky moving higher

Today the prompt for NaPoWriMo was to open a reference book to a random page and make a poem from what you found there.  I chose to do a blackout poem from the page I opened in my Encyclopedia of Superstitions which was the one that included “clouds”.

We have a clear blue sky here in NYC though.  I will enjoy running my errands today!

Quandaries of Wayfaring

quandaries of wayfaring s

wild
winter
branches that
conjure open
the cloisters of clouds–
revenant voyagers
securing figments that reflect
tomorrow’s revolving always–
reformulated problems of light
that pirouette–changelings shifting the sun

An etheree for Colleen’s #tanka Tuesday with synonyms for haunt and spell.

 

Koan Collage: It Makes Me Wonder

air waves blk s

Question the dragon
swimming in air waves.  Enter
sky light from inside
out.  No two travelers meet
with similar seas.

I consulted the Collage Box Oracle this week for Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.

Clouds are always a rich source of imagery.

The dragon jumped out at me right away.

And the Stairway to Heaven, too.  It makes me wonder, for sure.

 

Another Question (K)

another question magnetic

Nina and I alternated lines in our consultation with the Magnetic Oracle this week.  My art is a monoprint on rice paper with tissue paper “glued” into some of the paint–I used it quite liberally for this one.

Why listen to rain?
relax beneath wet nature
here soon long peace
gentle clouds will breathe

We have a sunny cool day here in NYC…hope you are relaxing, rain or shine.

Who can hold a cloud?
The sky dances with stray dreams—
a gift of nothing

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.  Continuing my haikus that start with a question.

Sometimes the best gifts are those we can’t quite grasp.

Sky Voices

The Magnetic Poetry Oracle is in a different mood today.

morning
clouds linger
as ferocious angels
remember their sky voices
laughing breezes dance in secret
and rhythmic color surrounds
the universal fool

The Clouds and the Sea

the clouds and the sea s

It’s supposed to snow again tonight (it’s just too tempting to say “April Fool!”), so I’m going to think thoughts of warmer weather.  This collage was inspired by a watercolor done by Create Art Everyday that was titled “Spring Storm” (http://createarteveryday.com/2015/03/28/spring-storm/).

My collage leans more towards summer than spring, but it’s definitely looking forward to a change in the seasons…hello, spring?
