standing strong

this one by colorsetbrushes makes me sweat; words too.

it’s good to wake up again and standstrong 001 (2)
see light give shape and form to objects
the branches begging the sun;
all kinds of begging;
some with still hands at their side;
others bending,
waving wild in the wind;
never before shadows
creeping slowly across nearby mounds.

a grocery store’s empty shelfsarahfall 001 (2)
is where a kid dared to go and
he saw wires and cobwebs
and a bug that didn’t move.
it was the kid’s little secret and
so were the other places
he wandered.

I realized for the first time that paintings can make me hungry.

she wore a white turtle neck;BCsky 001 (2)
made her red cheeks look really red.
i wanted to tell her;
“you look like an ice cream cone,”
but i knew better or
knew worse.
i stared at the sky instead;
at the way it hugged the land
and so on.

colorsetbrushes with a surprise painting or not a surprise, but a stepping in a different direction. I like it and added some words as per usual.

10,000 years ago too.
i still floss my teeth and
wash my feet
every night before slipping into bed
like a love letter stuffed into an envelope
i welcome the chance to sing.

tranquille torture

steve:

the painter colorsetbrushes is apparently inspired at night too so I wake up and add some words.

canyon 001
the moon deals every damn night
whistling the same backpack song;
sending yet another fleet of
anonymous pilgrimages
and surrendering to sun and day
like a crumbling wall.

“no candy from strangers”
but she wasn’t a stranger.
she told us stories and anyway,
she gave us cookies,
not candy.
she saw me there,
many years later;
i thought i was looking for my rabbits foot
but then she saw my face.
