Soul song on three notes

Sometimes words come along with paintings, or afterwards, with looking. Feeling a need to share this poetic writing, I have begun to assemble and revise it. I am exploring whether it wants to emerge as an audio-visual work, an event, an exhibition, a book, another blog, or some combination of all those. Here's a taster.

I hum and sing my deep soul song,

sinking back into the work.

       Three notes in a minor key

 

This is the dark corner

            spreading its poison

and fun.

            Then the black ribbon that

connects us all.

 

And how we fall!

A terrible pulling down of orange,

and the blue wave lifting.

A quiet, angry path

Breathless.
