the tipping zone
between hope and
where an outstretched hand
a verse
a musical collaboration
is the difference
between life and death

we enter the zone arms flailing and
disbelief suspended
throw in belief and
in free fall
we empty tubes of colour into paint pots
in case there just may be
a future
what choice do we have
but to gift wrap treasure
when we are alone

woods pool
48 x 66 in. oil
private collection

the painting above reminded me of
looking through the clear water of early spring
suspended by magic
above the lake-bed
seeing the autumn leaves preserved
where they came to rest

the painting
the paddling
