laying an egg
a red earth one yet up high
where the view is better
freshly lain and soon to become
the offspring of a week of plunging
back into a well seasoned life
an invitation to do more hatching back
In the north country
where paints wait to be unpacked
birds to be watched
and a new world cracked open
Thank You Muses!
The postscript on the week in California – the piece I painted that day with the Muse Group. And as I harvested these words during our 5-minute free write, I was surprised by the timer going off just as I wrote the words “thank you Muses!” Indeed!
Now the paints are unpacked in the studio; today was a birdwatching day; and the charms of the north country are beguiling me once again.
