Poem #3 – Stamp collection – National/Global Poetry Writing Month 2017

Grrr 7
Grrr

Low growl
Brewing
Puff of ash from the seething volcano
Warning shot over the bow
Tremors in a glass of water

Vibrating throat
Grrrrowl rises up from the belly
Ears back
Eyes narrowed
A strip of standing hair
like a long Mohawk
Senses peaked
Ready to roar
Ready to pounce

Left a note on the door
“had a bad day,
went for a walk
to let off steam.”

    Hi Dawn

    I’m enjoying your stamp collection.

    I can’t remember exactly – were you at the painting weekend that time when I was so distressed and didn’t want to paint what I was feeling so I tried to paint nothing? I laugh every time I look at that painting – it’s one of the most “intuitive”paintings I’ve ever done. All fury and pain and dark and grief. A few days after Christmas my painting burst out of hiding. I do stuff like the one embedded in this message regularly now. I have no idea how. I tell myself “Just put paint on paper.” and stuff like this happens. Gabe says that I’m not allowed to say that I can’t paint anymore. OK.

    Everyone comes to their first painting workshop telling her about the art they already do – painting or writing or whatever it is. So when I said “quilt” she ignored me. When I said it again she dismissed it. After all, quilts are so dull and not really art-y, right? Last time I was there I showed her some of the fabric bags that I make. It’s so pump you up when you wow! your art teacher. Hah! Also go google “Contemporary art quilts” and go to the “images” tab.
