A window sees through a cabbage


This is not a dream although it has the feel of memory.  Perhaps, it is the vegetal which looks through the window to find something misplaced.  Nothing is lost, really.  Neither word nor spoon.

Ocean as yarn


and what tales the ocean can tell.  These are water's roots --powerful dream-agents and they go deep.  Reminds me of engaging in a meal where food & conversation commingle.  Where conversation goes deep or skips on the surface but is not trivial.  Or paper where the words shimmer, sometimes are lucid yet dreamy.

Gears


But what is this gizmo?  Sometimes, function is foremost. Sometimes not.  That conversation is at the forefront of all cuisines as well as any poem.  Perhaps, grandmother was right when she said a pen is the gizmo and your intentions are gears which make a poem spin.  Do you agree?

Tactile


and plush as space luxuriates in color & texture.   Reminds me of pomegranate seeds on a bed of spinach (with other edible goodies).  Reminds me of the line break you can hear, you can stroke.

Spring is the bursting-time


bursting forth with a great name, "Edgeworthia Chrysantha."  Also known as Paper Bush.  Makes we want to pick up a pen, grab some paper and let the verbs burst forth.  Edgeworthia reminds me that eggs make a lovely lunch.  Yolks beguile.

Really, how far apart are stones & glass?


They speak a language of light & touch.  On a particular Monday one might say, the language of grace.  This is akin to a simple meal prepared and shared with friends.  A poem sent off in hopes
it captures light and a touch of grace.

Ankle-bone level awe


Spring does that to us -- every season.  The Douglas iris is a petite gem.  With strident pollen lines to smitten the most recalcitrant insect.  Are there any recalcitrant insects when pollen is near?  I think of paper & pen like pollen-painted petals.  In that state of awe-waiting.  And look-see, out of dried leaves what is possible.  Reminds me olive oil & garlic & roasted carrots & freshly grated Parmesan cheese & a twist or three of black pepper.  Sweetly sautéing.
