Dappling down the canopy come
Bright beams flashing flames
Glancing giddily
singing soundly they wade wallowing,
following fishes and laughing loudly
vibrant vibes abound around
Her hitched up skirt soaked
His hat falls and floats
A bobbing boat swiftly swept
Away where adventures await.
Alas, dreamy days don’t last long
His hand holds hers marking the moment
Glancing glassily, she stops, shyly stares, seeing
Something immutable, infinite in him.
The two understood in unison
Needing nothing similitude unspoken
Embedded evermore sunlit spirits unbroken.

(painting by Jacek Yerka)

Thank you


You and geezlouise are so creative/talented; hearing your lovely feedback makes my day. (Also writing a poem was nice! And I picked raspberries and made sauce out of it...today was a good day)
Hope you both have a great weekend

That was beautiful. I love it when art inspires poetry...or vice versa.

Mhm hot raspberries with vanilla ice cream and a shot Amaretto. Okay how not to make this strange... let's see. I also love you and initially my first post would have been the heart eyed smiley! But I deemed it a little bit too creepy. Explaining this now is strange. Did I really type this?

You are talented and a thousand times more creative than I could ever be, Miss Zosimov! And Miss Geezlouise put down a post in a thread of mine that needed to read three times to grasp it and it's not her who is to blame about it.

The truth about me: I am just too social awkward to ask for help or advice.




You both have a nice weekend too, hope the weather is good

Well your post put a huge smile on my face, so it can't be that awkward! I love you too, and if someone else who reads this feels awkward that's on them.

Raspberry sauce mmmm, that's impressive! Sounds delicious with a smidgen of butter on a cracker. Or with cheese oddly! Idk!

I'm glad you had a good day. Makes me happy to hear. Also ha! You are creative af. I've been too depressed to be very creative lately but I've been writing my dark most depressing most paranoid most deep masterpiece of a manuscript... it's coming along. I want you to read it!

a reply to: ThatDamnDuckAgain

OMG LOL I LOOOOOOVE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW THAT I HAVE TO WRITE IN CAPS. The feeling is a little mutual, language is so tricky isn't it. Why is it so tricky?! I love you no matter what.

It's so heartwarming

Sun goes up but it's two hours past midnight here.
Daughter is on a sleep over, that means ATS is going to be burdened with my presence for a while

Very nice and smooth. I like it

That artwork is really cool like awesome

I have to read a poem a few times to grasp it sometimes. It did paint a beautiful scene and I feel the love

I like that.
Words don't suffice,
but no words required.

But here's more books with words.

Shelves of Books by Jacek Yerka

I'm 17% through the Brothers. I think I'll re-read Book III, Chapter 7. Smerdyakov has an interesting take.

Thank you so much to everyone who read and responded!

Thanks for posting more of Yerka's beautiful art! He's been doing lots of painting since I last checked out his stuff. So fantastical and dreamy.

I haven't really wanted to comment in this thread, lol; as usual, once I post poetry I get all embarrassed with it and just feel like closing the notebook back up and shelving it (metaphorically). All these really beautiful comments made it all worth it, though


I haven't been reading much. I have three more weeks of this teaching assignment (really enjoy my students, btw) and maybe I can really get down to it. Think I'll read more tonight though! I'm only just getting started. Taking the book outside now actually.

Hope you are all doing well.
