"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.

One low

One long high note
one low

Mom's whistling for me,

Poll--ly

My name, like Chinese,
is tonal.  Two notes--

One long high note
one low

Black Capped Chickadee
he makes the same call

One long high note
one low

Mom--my

He whistles from
a slender tree

One long high note
one low

Chickadee
stop calling me

Mom--my

coos my son
through a screen

One long high note
one low
