Juxtapositions

 

46EFE952-ED2C-4C9E-A4F7-5C7892462FE6The trees color my morning

My morning walk expands my day

Mixing two colors brings a third

Juxtaposition of two words or phrases

Brings a fresh thought

A ladder standing next to an empty garden

Or goats knocking on my door

A glass of scotch or a glass wine

How do you start

To add meaning to your day?

What’s the meaning of starting your day?

A moment before or a moment after

She has no troubles.

She has no troubled existence

She can’t immediately forget

She has many “for the first time”

she has not experienced yet.

The phrase ”for the first time” excites her.

How does it feel to sleep and wake in an ice palace?

She wants to spend the four seasons in different parts of the world.

She is almost seventy.

A day

BFE0C04D-F5BF-4FE8-B39C-DC4BA0F6FBA7.jpeg

Quietly your self worth diminishes

like salt on a pavement

your voice loses its tone, forgotten.

Who will remember you?

A shadow in a system.

You cry. New tide comes,

covers the muddy river bank.

The white egret returns.

You survive another day.

Note: Last week Mrs. Abstract and I and our two friends toured Andy Warhol’s art Exhibit at MOMA in San Francisco, California. Very interesting.

Books I’m currently reading: Moby Dick by Melville and Paris, 7 A.M. by Liza Wieland, a novel about a young Elizabeth Bishop.
