Morning Mosaic

Oil on Linen

This is the third painting in the series of poems and paintings. The collaboration with Polly has been a creative experience. The paintings are done first and the second stage is for Polly to study the work and write the poem. Easy for me to say. The poet looks at paintings and images in a total different way than a visual artist. What I see is a blazing sunrise, she would describe as a kindling of morning light. I guess that supports the fact that my books all have lots of pictures and Polly gets excited over the latest edition of the Oxford Dictionary.

Morning Mosaic

Kindling of first light ignites a fiery dawn. In
spectrums of color, sunbeams shimmer like

morning flames. Burning off the mist, day
breaks into fragments of dispersed dreams.
