If you have been following my blog,
you'll note that recently I have been pairing my paintings along with poems by e.e.cummings.
This painting was inspired by a photo that my son took while he was stationed in Alaska. I was so impressed by the photo that I created both this silk painting and a water color painting.
The poem by ee cummings that fits best with this silk painting is:
when face called flowers float out of the ground```e.e.cummings
when faces called flowers float out of the ground
and breathing is wishing and wishing is having
-but keeping is downward and doubting and never
-it's april(yes,april;my darling)it's spring!
yes the pretty birds frolic as spry as can fly
yes the little fish gambol as glad as can be
(yes the mountains are dancing together)
when every leaf opens without any sound
and wishing is having and having is giving
-but keeping is doting and nothing and nonsense
-alive;we're alive,dear:it's(kiss me now)spring!
now the pretty birds hover so she and so he
now the little fish quiver so you and so i
(now the mountains are dancing, the mountains)
when more than was lost has been found has been found
and having is giving and giving is living
-but keeping is darkness and winter and cringing
-it's spring(all our night becomes day)o,it's spring!
all the pretty birds dive to the heart of the sky
all the little fish climb through the mind of the sea
(all the mountains are dancing;are dancing)
Ah,yes (all the mountains are dancing;are dancing)
Thank you for reading.

along with another of e.e.cummings wonderful
poems. Let me know what you think.
touching you i say(it being Spring
and night)"let us go a very little beyond
the last road---there's something to be found"
and smiling you answer"everything
turns into something else, and slips away....
(these leaves are Thingish with moondrool
and i am so very little afraid")
"along this particular road the moon if you'll
notice follows us like a big yellow dog. You
don't believe? look back.(Along the sand
behind us, a big yellow dog that's....now it's red
a big red dog that may be owned by who
only turn a little your. so. And
there's the moon , there is something faithful and mad"
Thank you for reading.
