#15 Still Shiny

#15 Still Shiny
I know you are shiny
still,
because my heart is sad to leave.
I'm fine when things are dull,
and I'm sleepy at the wheel..
but when it's time to go,
I'm gone and that's OK.
but never knowing what or when,
and unsure of where things end
up.
for I have given and I give,
and gladly give but wishing
wished.. the lovely shininess stay.
and be sure of you. and you, and you..
(and you..)
and not worry or hurt or pine.
and be sure and feel alright..
be grateful for the moments spent,
not worry away my empty time.

#13 winchester

Winchester
san jose 99
august came with 13
so we all piled in
and drove up
to catch the flashlights
in the jinxed house
that the crazy lady made..
half steps,
tripping in the dark
new friends
old friends
a bit of a lark.
daisies were lucky
stained glass too..
stairs to nowhere,
doors hidden from view.
green parks and
tourist traps,
ice cream treats quite late
and a long drive back
break down
and suddenly carless
memories made
glad we came,
but was not so
lucky 13.

#12 green

Untitled

green.
walking
the solid
footpath,
made by years
of pacing:
people,
wheels,
and dogs..
I think of you:
earth,
under-foot.
feeling a
wish.
remembering.
green.
sun.
sky-blue
light-filled
days.
happy moments
wishing-back.
green,
new
memories.

Saturday morning I was off to the city to find a couple paintings to write about for my 2nd Art History paper.. It's a long journey to the other side of this tunnel. BART from Berkeley to Powell, then take the #5 to 10th & Fulton (or 8th & Fulton)

I had some paintings to look at so I didn't take much time in the park.. but if there's time to be had it's worth it.


coming out of the 2nd tunnel into a lovely sunny, green music filled day..

I didn't actually check out the new installation.. but instead wandered a wing I hadn't visited yet and found a few things I liked. I had a quick treat and then was on my way..


but not before checking out the Keith Haring sculpture I spotted from the cafe..

I wasn't keen to have to go back out there. I really like the Oakland Museum of California better.. but I had fun this time and took my time taking in more of the pieces there. I hate the commute out there, but found I liked the museum much more the second time around.. although I'm not sure how soon I'll be back. It was a long commute! ;)
