Passions

Portrait-Owen

Owen in 2008

 

from Fredrik Bachman
Brett Marie Was Here

p261
“All passion is childish. It’s banal and naive. It’s nothing we learn. It’s instinctive, and so it overwhelms us. Overturns us It bears us away in a flood. All other emotions belong to the earth, but passion inhabits the universe.

That is the reason why passion is worth something, not for what it gives us but for what it demands that we risk. Our dignity. The puzzlement of others and their condescending, shaking heads…..

sometimes our souls are catapulted off the floor” and passion stops all our pain as we yell and yell and yell…

Horse Context

Horse

art by Rama Dixit

 

riding side saddle

seen in the twist of the leg

but where is the second leg?

shoulders face front

so how is the left knee facing sideways?

rider looks down

so the horse must be leading the way

diagonal knees bent

shows horse’s trot

pony tail mirrored

in rider and horse:

always bouncing forward!

the delectable use of gold ink by Andrew Van Der Werhe

 

may not shimmer

like gold leaf

 

may not shine

like polished sheen

 

but the glimmer

for the winner

sparkles nonetheless

Why Grandma’s hem has to touch her ankles

ElixabethRoseStanton

art  by Elizabeth Rose Stanton

 

some of the grands are still crawling

and they need to grab the nearest Nana fabric

to chew on

while other delicious scents can brush the lace

and call over the pets

to the cookie jar

the pumpkin pie

blueberries

watermelon

pie

nana feet

toes

and

essence of comfort!

Split the reflection

NeilWaldman0256_o

painting by Neil Waldman

 

play God:

split the reflection

layer the birch trunks

under the fall leaves-

and above the dots of moonlit dapples

and the deep black ground

above the edge of blue water

and white trunks

diminishing dots of ghostly waving trunks

subdued orange reflections

blue shadows

and that deep black ground reflected at the bottom

another black hole of possibilities
