Sun and cloud shadow,
bird-song echoes through an open window.
A dog barks, the cat calls for breakfast.
Kettle boils, coffee brews,
rain falls on the garden.
Structures, solid, recognisable, re-assuring.
Neurons. Electrical impulses. Thoughts. Senses.
Patterns in transit.
The kaleidoscope of life,

Teri, your words strike a chord early on this Friday morning. It’s the reassuring ‘other’ which gives me hope. A kaleidoscope asks our involvement for the wonder to be revealed. But all too often I dwell on the static pattern. Thank you.
Thank you for your comment Tom, I like that you made a connection with the reassuring ‘other’ and our use of the kaleidoscope to reveal the wonder. Thank you.
Thanks for the glimpse of your morning Teri…so, so familiar. Beautiful painting, beautiful poem.

Thanks Nick. It’s approx: 16 x 16 inches (40 x 40cm). Got to work up to a large canvas like yours, I’m still practising with oil paint.
