invited to the waltz
stopped in my tracks by doubt
unused to these shoes

i don’t remember where
to put my hands
or how to dance

how do i recall
what seems completely new

guide me by texture
double-breasted wool suit
lightly into silk blouse
high heels
now knowingly glide

room rounds as
tables dishes napkins glasses bottles
chairs coats handbags
musicians singers performers

one living thing
under the
in the warm electric night

Knight’s Move Thinking

linking tangential ideas

off-putting to some

comes naturally to me.

Isn’t that where new ideas come from?

Don’t poets and artists build


between otherwise disjointed ideas

to let others cross?

Time for reflection.

Ultimately – or at the limit – in order to see a photograph well, it is best to look away or close your eyes. ‘The necessary condition for an image is sight,’ Janouch told Kafka; and Kafka smiled and replied: ‘We photograph things in order to drive them out of our minds. My stories are a way of shutting my eyes.’ (Roland Barthes: Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography)

I love this post… do I write, and make art in order to forget – to clear my mind? Am I driven to share in order to forget?

longest night

thirteenth full cold moon

twice erased

eclipsed in shadow of the unseen sun

knocking my head against

the wall
pounding ‘till i don’t feel it

why don’t i turn the other

no wall
on a curved surface
space/time is not flat

why do my thoughts get
written in script


so close to the plane of a page
when i want to reach though
the surface

break though
more suitable atmosphere
feeling myself in all dimensions

moving my body to breathe

the first snow came
before all the leaves had fallen

no red, orange and yellows
some still cling
ghostly green
to the branch

looking up

out the window

head tipped –

what does my indoor cat

A nice comment from one of my favorite blogs… A Twisted Pair.  http://atwistedpair.wordpress.com/2010/11/19/someone-elses-shoes/   –

Thanks! But will I be able to get rid of the shoes?

I am wondering – now in my fifth decade – how I have acquired so much stuff – and why do I still want it?

Oh, I think, I paid so much for those shoes and the purse to match and I do so love how pretty they are – but what do I need of turquoise kitten heeled sandals when I walk in the gravel and mud?

Maybe if I could let go of those shoes and the purse – which I haven’t used in some years now – then the rest will fall out of my cluttered house like these last leaves of autumn.

Will it leave me a sparse and cold winter or a time of clarity for reflection?

Letting go is painful, but it is the only way to learn anything new – make ready for spring and growth.
