Making Art

MAKING ART

Everything breathes
As if but as a fiction
As is even a notion of time

For all this roaring
This Trumpetting horrorscope
Is in Truth both quite illusory
And also long long past
Long fixed in sticky time while

Fixed as the Mona Lisa
I step back to reflect
Or else lose myself

In my imaginings
Of the meaning
Of her smile while
While death creeps
On tiptoes nearer

To Not To Be

TO NOT TO BE

Shakespeare left nothing
Beyond his art; his life was
Immaterial

Ani

Allegic To Ani

ANI

Half a world away
One mind one heart united
Whatever that means

Bear With Me

Small Bear 01

This bear was made by my dear wife. To give you an idea of the size the coin is 22.5 mm across. Today is our anniversary. It is always good to have something to liven up those few days of limbo in between Christmas and New Year.

Not Forgotten

NOT FORGOTTEN

Trout Mask Replica
Beyond and within are one
The Captain transcends

Whence Art?

WHENCE ART?

Like the man do say
We are divine declension
I am then thou art

Like A Puff Of Smoke

LIKE A PUFF OF SMOKE

The ice melts away
As if it had never been
Parting of the ways

Miles and Trane, Stockholm ’60
Both gone now, yet we remain

In gratitude.

Messengers We

MESSENGERS WE

Believing
We
Are at the helm

Is
After all
Laughable

More important we observe
And absorb
Then pass on as appropriate

Spatter!

SPATTER!

Loot your palette
Chunder with gay abandon
Splash out recklessly

Freely bespangle
Give wild inspiration rein
Spattering matters
