A Universe Of Colors And Adding What We Can

Tomorrow is Friday and tomorrow’s the new Moon
and that means Saturday or Sunday the thin young Moon
might be visible in the west just after sunset
a pale orange crescent set against the still blue sky.

There are small patches of grass next to the donut shop
and sometimes for some reason work crews don’t cut the grass
and patches of wildflowers grow taller than the tall grass
plain white or yellow blooms against the green of the grass.

The wildflowers now are growing next to the donut shop
and this weekend I’ll be next to the donut shop too
and I’ll be studying the sky even though I add
no color to the scene I’ll try to add what I can.

This is a short post but it took me
a long time to think about before I tried
to write it. It is kind of a sequel—in a way
I can’t really put into words—to a couple of posts
from a while back that I never, until now,
thought of as being related.

To Make A Song To Sing About Walls

Associative Editing Techniques

At some point in the future I’ll be returning
to this stuff, but I’m not sure when. After
a lot more thought, though.
