Raw and Unvarnished as I Rendered the Pictures,
Save for Just a Few Minor Cosmetic Changes

Every Visual Artwork and Motif
Should Include These Extra Poetic Dimensions

 Too Late or Too Soon Improvised Tanka,
Out of Season

Radio playing
“Christmas Time is Here”
on a mid August night.
Lines of her form and contours
after Alexander Calder.

The Blues

Heat combines with Art.
Marine layer August breeze
and classic sketch pose.


The more I
screw up,
the better
I get.

I look upon nudes
to learn pure morality.
Christina’s visage.

Improvised Sylph Galactic Cluster

Nobel Prize
Higher Physics.
I’ve accomplished
what Einstein
never could.
I’ve ridiculously
a beautiful woman.
I must be composed
of condensed
dark matter
transforming me
a gravitational
funhouse mirror.
I love it!

Energy Field Haiku

Female vocalist
Never have I seen pure form
as now – jazz solo.

Christina Twenty Minute Meanderings

Indescribable -
her subtle beach jazz fluid
pure feminine form.

I learn chastity
geholding her nude contours.
Art transforms all dreams.

Timer outside time
she merges into boulders,
swims without movements.

Final Pose

Statues stand alive
teaching us moral lessons.
Chaste nude purity.

And what of the stars
that adorn her lightbody?
What does her skin song?

“Titanic” Rose lives.
Sun and moon, flower tattoos –
soft skin trinity.

Pinkish twilight veil,
silky robe over shoulders.
Soft glow innocence.
