Poetry: The Strand Theater

 

The Strand Theater of Old Forge

Rising from the bottom of an
unfillable sink of inside space,
the Strand Theater is a Mondrian;
its meanings come rushing over
hazy filters of digital luminescence:
a cosmology of sound and light,
blasting gigantic sweeping images,
like felled hemlocks on a forest floor.

Poetry: Wild Rhubarb

 

Wild Rhubarb

A kiss studied
is so much more beautiful
than a kiss performed.

It gives nothing away.

When I kiss my wife,
I should remember it.
It never was meant to be
a handshake. And why do
we kiss to say goodbye?

These goodbyes lasting,
stretching, crowding the horizon.

A sound is burned but a kiss is alive.
Alive like a moose scarfing wild rhubarb.

Don Wynn: Not The Times To Be Painting Only Trees

Mysterious Marriage of St. Ivanka acrylic 11x12 2017I’ve been taking some time away from trying to capture the elusive painted equivalents of things primarily Adirondack in origin, which in many instances are so very positive in character.

In times of great sociopolitical upheaval, as is the case in our nation today, events occurring beyond our personal sphere of activity will have a profound and sometimes immediate effect on our own environment. » Continue Reading.
