yeses become noes become maybes become hang ons
the rain keeps beat to a song i’ve never heard
which is odd because i’m a walking juke box
the frogs and crickets seem to know the tune
as does my breath
and all these

The title is from a line by Lewis Carrol. Couldn’t find whether it’s in ‘Alices Adventures in Wonderland’ or ‘Through the Looking Glass’ and I can’t remember! But the entire brilliant quote is:
“Curiouser and curiouser!” Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).”

mine twists turns hides reveals
challenges nourishes taunts
gifts puzzles outrageous beauty strangeness and much love
skips rolls hides seeks
disappears altogether then wraps itself around my heart
laughs sings dances and drags its feet
utterly confuses me then grounds me sweetly
the only thing i think i’m certain of
“off to see the wizard!”

I’m going through a phase where songs play through my head over and over and over on some of the pieces I’m playing around with. ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’ (by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg) from the ‘The Wizard of Oz’ took center stage in my brain while i was painting this one. Hence, the title!

even as we ebb
Love dances in our tide pools
