oscillating follow up

walk on 
with no idea 
where you're going
no paths 
no trails
light is acting as your guide
walk in that direction

these are trees not a tunnel

walk on
walk on 
where you 
have never walked before

"Nip Title"
(nip parenthetical statement)
nip follow up

blame it on the moon

the confusion appeared to be 
mostly gender
there were some of us 
who wanted you 
and some of us 
who wanted to be you

we thought you were honest 
until you lied to us
we thought you were fair 
until you cheated on us
we thought you were the law
until you stole from us

then came that confusion 
about your name 
and where you were born
nothing was ever made clear

I just lost interest 
was no longer amused 
when I thought you thought 
you knew my name

"Nub Title"
(nub parenthetical statement)
nub follow up

Have been trying to convince myself to leave these circles/orbs/coronas behind to pursue other images. I just keep being drawn to them. They are what I think about a lot and what comes to mind when I'm in front of a piece of watercolor paper. This started while planning a book that involves spheres. It is difficult to see the project clearly but am sure I will find the way to achieve it. This started as no more than practice while working on that plan.

I have always been nearsighted. Recently had two eye operations that make it possible for me to see distances.  Have been enjoying clouds immensely. Now I'm enjoying the moon. Have never seen the moon so clearly except in photographs. Absolutely amazing is not too strong of a description.

It is making leaving these circles/spheres/coronas behind difficult. So. Please stay with me.
