Mackerel sky obscures the moon;
rain scent flirts along the edges
of the wind that tosses leaves
like noisy unbound hair;
night simmers with the promise
of a storm to rock us all
from sleep to wakefulness,
calypso beat of raindrops
on the hissing heat of tile,
holding all the remnants
of the day deep in its stony heart
so warm to unshod feet.
Stars flash their shine
against the sodden mass
of clouds all pumped
with their opinion
ready to spout forth
the rain that earth
will welcome home
and hold until
the sun sucks it away
to dry the ground
and damp the sky
and make a drapery
of misty mackeral cloud
to bind about the moon.

I paint boats and plants usually and very rarely a portrait with watercolour but I never get the quality of light I strive for...never thought of illustrating my poems. If I ever publish perhaps. I have certainly produced quite a few since I joined CS!

How is your garden?hug

Dori,

You don't have to illustrate your work with paint; you paint with your words. How lovely this latest piece is! Keep up the good work! head banger

Garden is slowly fading away becoming more graphical. Creating more air chanels for Wind to play in between brances, trunks and twigs. I love it.
You need to publish ... your poems give a certain mood. It would be swell to have a small, medalion size watercolors for each or at least every second one.

How is Ocean ... still breathing heavily or calming down? hug

Thanks Jackson. There were some words running around my head while I was driving earlier and I am hoping they tiptoe back because I had to brake suddenly for a sheep crossing the road and I lost them.

I trust all is well with you and the Kansan (lumpy pillowed motels notwithstanding!).hug wave

The ocean was just breathing deeply when I passed it about forty minutes ago. Swells are just about 1.5 meters so not too bad. The air has that electric feeling of a storm about to happen, rain waiting to fall. Makes it steamy.

I love sketching trees when they get stark and graphical like that. Negative space is so tantalizing!

Stunning light! The Bay of naples in the Moonlight is phenomenal, it looks like our East Coast at the full moon.

Thank you for telling me of him.

Sure, if you are ever coming to Barbados I have room for guests and have been known to be quite sociable.

I'll even pick you up at the airport.wave

I'm glad you feel that way, Bajan. kiss hug But that's only one sentence. Think of what it would be like to string hundreds of such sentences together in poetic meter...

Oh, wait, you already know all about that, don't you.wine

"from sleep to wakefulness,

This is my favorite part.
Hissing tile, so eloquent,
Direct metaphor
to bring objects to life.
Nice technique Dor...thumbs up

night simmers with the promise
of a storm to rock us all
from sleep to wakefulness,

nice use of the incongruity of a "promise of a storm"
to rock us all"
