Coming and Going

 Coming and going

Days in a high rise
Nights on the ranch
Before sun breaks fog
Before Big Red crows
There's melody dance

Ignore egg becomes toad
Salvation in an $18 cross
Before you fall to knees
Before you miss mother
There's bagpipes of loss

coming and going

Kitsch red rose 
Cliche emoji tear
Before step on crack
Before step over penny
There's grateful fear.

Heat Wave Poem

Burn wave

Heat pricks scorpions
search swimming holes
No place for guardians
protect Salton Sea scrolls

Burn wave

Spontaneous fires
not quelled by fog
flap power line wires
melt hot lung smog

Burn wave

Climate isn't changing
nay Sayers are certain
graphs always ranging
Earth begs shade curtain

Heat wave

Dovey Dee Reverence for White

Hold nature in your hands
Cup fingers to allow light.
White hot sky and lands
Cerulean memory at night.

Trekked to see an old friend's work,  Dovey Dee's art delivers her lifelong passion for landscape. The paintings seem covered in mist and sand from being too close to the sky, but no they are dry. 

Returning to Pomona was a pleasant surprise. I once owned a building on Holt (it had ghosts but that's another story).  The town has a lively Arts Community with live music, food vendors, many crafts and booths. I wandered for an hour and kept the joy of Dovey's work in my heart all night. 

Reverence for whites in nature. 

Swans perhaps my favorite image of her show

Abandon Divorce

Abandon Divorce with Joy Poem

Attorney fee eats cash in bank 
Cheaters take each dime
Exercise, yourself to thank 
Friends  reveal  in time.

Meaningful seeds in photographs
Sea salt upon white wedding dishes
Anger wasted on pews of collapse
Crummy dad ignores child's wishes.

Fill this empty church with joy
Muscles of your heart endure
Plan future of turmeric coin alloy
Freedom ahead photons the cure.
