"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.

Shapes




A circle is just a circle, until you draw rays then it's a sun.
A circle is just a circle, until you draw a smile then it's a face.
A rectangle is just a rectangle until you add birds then it's the sky.
A rectangle is just a rectangle until you add a knob then it's a door.
A square is just a square until you add wheels then it's a wagon.
A square is just a square until you add a Christmas tree, then it's a present.
A triangle is just a triangle until you draw a square then it's a house.
A triangle is just a triangle until you draw a family then it's a home.

This poem is inspired by my daughter's school project she brought home yesterday.  These are mostly direct quotes from her classmates.
