Delft at mid-day

View on Delft, 17th century, Johannes Vermeer.

 

red roofs on the left

blue roofs on the right . . .

Delft at mid-day

when time itself stood still

and posed for Vermeer

Sailboat lessons

sailboat lessons —

one close call

after another

And then

and then the sound

of an ice cream truck

— I pat my pockets

Po-Mo International Mail Art Exhibition 2019

I’ve never been to Turkey, but one of my poems — as part of a cool postcard collage by the inimitable artist Lorette C. Luzajic — has. It’s on display (amidst many, many others) at the 2019 Po-Mo International Mail Art Exhibition.

How cool is that?  :- D

gray day . . .
in my head too
this fog

Violets

they disregard

the No Trespassing sign!

great bunches of blue

Zigzagging

zigzagging

through the street market

stall to stall . . .

the feel of your hand

in mine
