More Painting and Poetry

John Timpane and I had so much fun with the collaboration for the Poetry show at the Sherry French Gallery in April, we wanted to keep it going a little longer. John submitted our painting/poetry to a wonderful on-line literary magazine, "The Wild River Review" . We are included in the new issue. Make sure to take some time to look through the rest of the issue. Joy Stocke, the executive editor, has created a magnificent publication.


Where it all
Where the open is
Where shriek where tick
Where slopes of chance
Where slow evade
Where erode
Where surge withdraw
Where electric concentrate
Where sink
Where decay lace
Where the torn foam
Where reeds incline
Where the edge the ecotone
Where to osmose
Where brevity wave sinews
Where through sieve mud light
Where salt meets the sweetness of the burn
Where dawn shifts evening
Where rags of possible
Where press filter quiets
Where what tiniest organic infinite
Where spawn tang of estuarial sump
Where tidal diffusion song cluster
Where only rise
Where it begins

This painting, "December Tide, Casco Bay" and John Timpane's poem were not included in the April exhibit in New York, so it's nice to have them appear together in Wild River Review.
