call to prayer

Downtown church bells ringing two o'clock
echo against skyscrapers.

I surprise a brown grasshopper
sitting on a fern
and it flies away in a rattle.

ten things i learned painting houndstooth on a barn

1. This was the first outdoor painting project where I had to take an object (a tree) into consideration when figuring out what to paint.

i dreamed . . .

. . . my legs were made from laminated mermaid newspapers and inflatable plastic, allowing me to walk in water. They could also be swept back into the shape of a brontosaurus pool toy for people to float on.

I felt so blessed yesterday driving back to Houston from Austin. The weather was glorious. Partly cloudy, mostly blue sky, breezy. A perfect concoction of chilly and warm air. And all the way home: wildflowers, wildflowers, wildflowers.

. . . a boy in an Easter bunny costume vomited green-yellow tinsel and spread it over a still-soft cow patty.
