    weather’s important. to me, anyway πŸ™‚

      apparently to me, too. though i’m worried that makes me an old lady. always talking about the weather and the pains in my shins and the crappy coffee i just drank and the way kids these days where their pants.

        and if the weather theme persists, i’ll just have to embrace it. you know, because i’m so easy going. πŸ™‚

    I love “the horizon’s fresh / Pink welts” — I just keep expecting to learn more about the understory that informs that perspective.

      interesting point, marie. whether they can be snapshots that express joy and pain and all of that metaphorically (and generically) or if they will ultimately need more.

      i’m not sure where this is going. are they starts of other separate poems? are they stand alone pieces like fiona’s handful of stones or micropoetry? are they part of a series/sequence as i’m writing them here?

      i have no idea where they’re taking me. it seems to be helping, though, take some of the pressure off feeling i have to write complete and thorough poems. i’ve been stymied.

    I like the weather, too. Of course, I am older, grumpier and creakier. πŸ™‚

    And obsession is the best muse — I think you going along with whatever happens is a great idea. Let the shaping happen once there is enough to explore. In a while. Quite a while, if need be.

    You’ve got great language, vignettes. Let the bread swell on the water. πŸ™‚

      PS — adding photographs is another creative release. I’m really enjoying looking at your visual images, too.

        i figure i’ll add photos when i can. it makes the blog look a little nicer and it may help me with revision at some point.

        i mostly want them in case i decide to do visual art again. need a stock of photos.
