POST 129: Exhibit in London, paintings, art, Maine, South Carolina

by Carol Bass

invite now on this maine balmy winter eve
global warming, but an eyelash move
in this universe of billions of planets with life
please all come to this
showing in London
a happening that pulls us all
through the dark
artists and poets need
people who love
everyone yearns
to be held
love and words and sunsets


She is my companion on the porch
tiny green wriggle
who appears and disappears
the color of palm and life

does the leaf
do for her
what it does for me?
