painted listening

amidst an ominous calm
forest companions
from crows to chipmunks
sound the alarm
there's urgency in the
buzz of the bees in the
delicate yellow flowers
of jewelweed and the
sound of the autumns
caterpillar industry
hitting overhead leaves
mimics the sound
of falling rain
in a strange quality
of daylight
i photograph
a reiteration of a painting
called " the past rushing past"
as the rumble of distant thunder
finally mixes with the
surrounding chorus
and get the painting inside before
the heavens open up

"requiem for a cheerleader" 48 x 66 in.
