Ideas for The New Year

“Hold an umbrella in one hand and a surprise in the other!” 

Find a new book, make some terrible art work. Get lost in a new city. Explore good magic and keep learning new skills! Write a poem, bake some cookies for a friend. Make a treasure map, and if you find  a new key in the clue, make a copy!

Optivion -New Year is here

Perhaps the most important of all, sing your favorite song, loud and clear and don’t worry so much about the harmony!

Poem for Sunday Shake
I had painted in October, inside the tune of the day
Was lured by autumn’s crisp ink
Central to the song you came, internal colors
Titian, untitled and cool.
Shake it off, shake it off.

Audrey Archangel

Audrey came from the clouds:
She played on the golden
She did not know I slept
She kept vanilla pockets!
And smiled through breakfast.

From her hand a sword:
From the print a star
From the dark a wink
That light, that magic!
She left for the holiday.

The Southern Gothic

Beyond the dead we will take a walk:
Fondly remembering the remains cut from stone.
The rebels authentic, bright sweeping falls!!
*
*
*
Beyond the gates we will take a rest:
Once the roses dry, antiquated thorns drew blood.
The rain murmuring, white sunny memories!!
*
*
*
Beyond the steps we will brake a lock:
Fiercely calling the chants from bones .
The uniforms youthful, stained magic rises!!

Kyoto Garden Wormhole

Optivion - Kyoto Garden Wormhole

*

*

While in Kyoto I made a piece or artwork titled: The Lady and the Wormhole.
The gardens in the city set a mood of serenity and quiet embrace. I was working on a short story about a woman who could travel through space using her garden as the vehicle. I had a dream about her wearing a blue kimono using the small magical landscape to travel through time. In Japan the landscape is part of the history of the town or the prefecture. The Shinto religion is ancient in the country and it holds trees, springs and mountains to be places of spiritual power. It would seem any of the gardens I visited would have the possibility for intergalactic transformation, well at least in my imagination.

Calling The Wizard.

Calling the wizard - Optivion

(Watercolor and Ink)

~Another wizard,

I can shoulder it my self, thy trust in the stars.

A walking book of spells, dragon holds the key, the night’s structure,
Silence has crossed.

Thee with the sight, you look quite a vision.
You wanted it too.

I will get the music started.

If you came for an explanation?
Maybe I am some kind of freak.

Ocean, flash, dream:
Focus!

– From “Manual of  Edward Blueflames” by the Princess April Skullpop

The Artist On

The Artist On

Top hat
scraps of glitter
unedited and unwaivering
eyes unvoiced
on all shades
flew on his hands
faithful Brushes
and for the mouth harp
The Loopticon arrives
ripples from stardust
chromatic silver
and with circular screens
utterly dynamo
completed the color crescendo.
Supplemented
by bewilderment
They all sat on echoes
in the dark
current of ancient logos
Hooray!
Hoodless one
slap with approbation:
The lights please
and the set begins.
