160/SS - in living colour



where i sit
ocean licks sky

tongue rough
with waves

it blushes
orange & pink

giggles on the
salty breeze

&

i want to
kiss you
places that
make your
soul quiver

What can you say in 160 characters? Go tell Monkey Man. And a simple water color for my friends at Sunday Sketches.

I always blush when I read your love letters to your wife. We uptight New Englanders are like that.

I love your use of pathetic fallacy for the actions of the ocean and sky.

Betsy said...

Ooooh..nice! Even first thing in the morning! ;)

TechnoBabe said...

I had to read this to hubby. Lots of fun and excitement in this poem.

Tina said...

Blushing. Your wife must love these, they're so romantic and um, erotic. As you say, smiles.

Marlene said...

What a wonderfully romantic post, the picture and words fit together so beautifully.

Sometimes you are the romantic! Thanks Brian!

Kristin Dudish said...

Whew - it is suddenly very hot in here...

I think this is one of my favorite poems so far. (I like the subtlety of the painting to accompany your very visual words)

I'm a sucker for giggles.
Love the colour!

Boom Boom Larew said...

"Giggles on a salty breeze..." Now that's what I need!

lifeisaroadtrip said...

Can I sit there, too? I promise to look at the ocean and not watch you with that "other chick". LOL. Have a super Sunday, Brian!

TALON said...

Soooo lovely...

Julia Christie said...

love the simplicity of this painting, and it is the perfect complement for your lovely poem!

to answer your question about the bookmarks, I am going to make each of the kids a bookmark that is personalized with things they love, like starwars, barbies, and art after I finish these colorful ones. WE read like crazy so you can never have too many bookmarks can you?

Glad to have you back at SS!

Smiles

Myrna R. said...

So beautiful Brian. After taking a little time off, you seem recharged with passion. That's wonderful. I love the painting. It's so serene, then your words put it on fire.

Well you did a great job with that constraint, I think you are kind of harsh on yourself. Enjoy what you do and relax, otherwise everything becomes a little painfull in life.

Shadow said...

Who Is Afraid of Alfred Hitchcock? said...

Hi! Brian...
Once again...your poetic words compliment your beautiful watercolour painting.

Personally, I really like to watch sunset(s)& blue skies and you, have captured both beautifully..."where i sit
ocean licks sky."


Thanks, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D
