“Pitcher of Moon”


Cover painting for "Pitcher of Moon"

was to be the cover painting for “Pitcher of Moon” but didn’t work out.



I dip into the pond

And gather a pitcher of moon.

Above it glimmers,

Smiles at my efforts

This late-winter moon.

It is just a bowl of cool water

I am holding

But the magic of the cosmos settles

In this plain clay vessel.

    Thank you, Sherry. Frank was beginning to stink a bit (vultures don’t smell well….) so I thought I would clear the air with something else.

    Thank you, Sanaa! I think you have a twitter account and I don’t. So…do you have a wordpress or other blog that I can leave comments? I wanted you to know that I read your works but haven;’t been able to post my comments. I love your work. It’s fresh and haunting.

    Thank you, Kay. Magic at our finger tips…what a lovely description….but it’s true….I guess most things can be magic at our fingertips depending our mood and how we view it.
