"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 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 or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

A dream landscape poem is kind of like a surrealist painting: images grouped together to form a new, impossible story.  I'm doing research on dream images for my thesis in writing for children.  So far, Maurice Sendak is my favorite writer who does this well.

Dream Landscape

I painted a pink tree for you
on a blue field of corn.
I'm sorry that it's gone
now forever.
Don't worry,
paint is cheap.
I can brush in
a world of star fruit
and night shine
where water
is any color
you wish.
