kaleidoscope:
8 or 6 sheep

roaming
the german
girl’s pigmented
scottish
highlands

wiry poles
transmit
phthalo blue
gaelic
by creamsicle hills

we hear
the storms,
bleats,
bushes snuggled
in cover

winding grey
road,
a winding
sheet,
vermilion violet

dusk settles
on the uphill
cwm,
grey
from ungulate hooves

night hums
for sheep
with
stained
glass eyes

  1. stain glass eyes….what a cool concept, imagining how you would see things through them…i like how you weave claudia in there just slightly as well…i like how you use sound in there as well…

  2. You have really taken an in depth look at Claudia’s painting, put into words the details she painted. I really like the ending…and that both the last stanza and the first make use of ‘stained glass.’ Nicely woven all around!

  3. night hums

    ‘stained glass eyes’ that’s a perfect fit to the title kaleidoscope. One can almost see the shiny and roaming eyes gleaming in mixed colors. Great imagery Mike!

  4. I like how you played up the colors and likened them to a kaleidoscope in Claudia’s sketch. Yes, are there 8 or 6 sheep? Had to look up ‘cwm’…that’s a new one for me. I like your reference to the artist too…really enjoyed your offering.
