"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

Under the Stars

Under

The night canopy,
my darkening quilt of pin pricked suns--

white, blue, black.

The mud, a trees height below
cooling with dusk dew--

red, earth, dirt.

The deck,
boards lashed tight spinning
their way over a Milky river of stars--

gray, midnight, white.

Grandpa’s sleeping bag,
a soft beast radiating dark heat--

brown, yellow, gold.

Mosquito spots,
stars without number--

red, pink, red.

The price of another delicious night
out of bed.
