post 103: Poem, PAINTING, October sun, zinnias, Maine

by Carol Bass

BRUISED FRUIT # 2

36″ x 36″ acrylic on baltic birch

OUTSIDE THE HOUSE

My head on a pillow
on a rock
dog asleep by my legs
one Dead brown and one Alive red Zinnia
neighbors on a long stem
tied together by a spider
the web glistening
October sun
grinning on us all
