Granma loves Zee's art. "I'll put ON the fridge says granma; "No" says Zee "don't put it IN the fridge Granma". "No No smiles granma, "I'll put it ON the fridge not IN the fridge"


scribbles and wiggles -
a magnet snaps priceless art

what a waste of song
morning birds i did not hear -
oh sing for me now

orange clouds dimming -
to reflect on the sunset
is anyone's gain

a tedious task
counting stars as they appear
with a twinkling

PATTERNS OF LIGHT


they pattern themselves
willy nilly on the ground
these fallen blossoms

the thunder sounded
yet a baby's cry was heard
from the house next door

it rained and rained lots
a curtain of water set
to the window view

today a sun day
patterns of light on floor tiles
by divine artist

one bird's chant -
anchoring the new day
coolness of dawn

coolness of dawn -
echoes in the empty street
where thoughts gather

where thoughts gather
rosary beads spin between light -
alas! the night was

i admire them
ixoras they never sleep
even in the rain

they own the rain
an overcast sky looms
early morning

rainy season
sensible pedestrians
carry umbrellas

one lonely bird
on the electric wires
without a song

there are days
when an early dark sky
sings homeward

not a boring night
she thinks smiling to herself -
brush strokes to canvas
