Black Mood (poem and painting)

Black Mood
watercolour on paper
12″x18″

i’m in a black mood

can’t you tell?

with a shade of purple

in there as well

when i’m all knotted up

i start to see red

cross me if you dare

if you want to be dead

Spring to Fall (poem and painting)

0

Spring to Fall
watercolour on corrugated cardboard
12″x15″

 

does Spring spring to Fall

or does Spring fall?

do you fall when you spring

or do you spring when you fall?

can you spring on springs

and not fall or do you fall?

it’s all a pun on nature

and that’s au naturel

Blue Concerto on a Green Planet (poem and painting)

Blue Concerto on a Green Planet
watercolour on paper
12″x18″

when blue spirits frolic

in the green planet

taking over the environs

they blend, create havoc

seeping through elements

tinting all conditions

nurturing all of nature

ensuring life ever after

Masks (poem and painting)

Masks
mixed media on paper
12″x18″

pink is a pretentious color

not bright or passionate or splashy like red

pink is a frivolous color

not mysterious or deep or rich like purple

pink is a playful color

not serious or intent or thoughtful like indigo

pink is a wanton color

not quiet or peaceful or calm like blue

pink is a pallid color

not vivid or living or fertile like green

pink is a deceptive color

not clear or truthful or honest like yellow

pink is a mask that people wear

a deception some like but others can’t bear

Twined (poem and painting)

Twined
watercolour on paper
12″x18″

twined together two totalities

twist tempting tantalizing

taut throughout temperature tormenting

tarrying teasingly torsos tangling

torrid taunting tempestuous tangoing

love in blue is love that’s true

love that’s deep

love in blue, that’s what it is

Lazy Afternoon (poem and painting)

Lazy Afternoon
watercolour on paper
12″x18″

what can be better than a good lazy afternoon

reclining, relaxing, revitalizing

recalling, remembering, reminiscing

recovered, rested, restored, revived

renewed from au naturel afternoon

Company (poem and painting)

Company
watercolour on paper
12″x18″

everyone knows two is company

you can spend a day in harmony

talk or silence won’t matter at all

just having you there as close as can be

is the perfect way to share your company

Tyger, Tyger (poem and painting)

0

Tyger Tyger
watercolour on paper
14×16

Tyger, tyger wrote a poet

in the shadows, thought he saw it

if it drew near you’d never know it

barely hear the grass around it

Tyger, tiger fearful creature

we cringe in fear at your raw nature

barely moving silent mover

glorious masterpiece of nature

Tyger, tiger do you ever

know how much fear in us you render

calm and patient stand you there

panicked, scared, we favour prayer.
