Standing in the Secret & the Secret of Standing


The white paper kangaroo,
atop the grey stone is
ballast for Alice dressed in blue
and weight against perilous
Leviathan on leather wings
who slow flaps low the dark sky.
And all the stars sing softly
signing, sighing their dismay
as wayward dark
undoes the bright of day.
Long and slender the thread
deep dyed a blood red hue
that may by might of humble things
enigma’s night undo.





The painting is unfinished ... still finding its way. I will post it again when finished. It may become part of a series orbiting around enigmas and riddles.

The white paper kangaroo

atop the grey stone is

ballast for Alice dressed in blue

and weight against perilous

Leviathan on leather wings

who slow flaps low the dark sky.

And all the stars sing softly

signing, sighing their dismay

as wayward dark

undoes the bright of day.

Long and slender the thread

deep dyed a blood red hue

that may by might of humble things

enigma’s night undo.
