missing the guinea hen



 I have nothing left to give
since the  guinea hen disappeared.
I considered giving the magenta morning sky
 or the flock of geese in v-formation
 but instead I offer the gift of pain
because it is what I know best.
I will sit with you and shed light on
the charm of misery and despair,
that is yours  for a song.
Together we can sing the ballad
that will capture the anguish
and fill your soul with the
exquisite ache.
Then we will weep in somber unison
when the geese take flight
at first light through the pink skies of dawn

I just saw your 591 Exhibit. Congratulations. Projects and series are the best way. You've done a great job.

I've done very few projects and series...I'm too random to stay disciplined. But maybe it is the way to go. Thank you, it means a lot to me to have you say that.
