My message this morning from the Oracle. I spend a lot of time thinking about the meanings of words.
the language of time
whispers here and there
like a shadow cast by wind
if after could be seen
as clearly as never
but why is like a dream
playing by moonlight
singing on ships of mist
of course not—the past
is here now,
with each breath in, out

Four of my word collages are featured in The Time Issue of the Journal Feral. You can see them here.
My thanks to editor Beth Gordon, and her team Narmadhaa and Amanda McLeod, for featuring my work.
The above collage is from my response to the Kick-About prompt of the work of Saul Bass.
If you follow fate far away to the return of time, understand that the passage into prophecy and myth is final
You can sometimes combine the beginning with the end. But take care. The interplay must never be rippled—look for translucence, a changing density that mirrors the journey of the stars. Listen, then turn around. Threaded into the horizon you will sometimes find the edges. Two of nothing will show you the way.
The clock invited me into its worn house, where twice a day there was a meeting place that balanced on the verge of departure. Forward or backward? I became lost in the movement, spinning around into all directions, endlessly lost inside each new location.
If I had found the common denominator…if I had been able to reconfigure what was left behind…if I could have traveled in tandem with the shadows…but if is not when. It is over, said and done.
It was a time and there was never enough of it.
For Prosery Monday at dVerse, Merril gave us a quote from Allison Adelle Hedge Coke: when it is over said and done/it was a time/and there was never enough of it. I ended up writing with a stream of consciousness hangover.
For my art, I took an old collage and superimposed it on a newish painting in Photoshop. As soon as I read the quote I thought immediately of this song.
