... outside the window ... sparrows chatter and flit from branch to branch ... teasing each other ... spring? ... what is about the passage of seasons ... mud-lucious

in Just-
in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little lame baloonman
whistles far and wee
and eddyandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
when the world is puddle-wonderful
the queer
old baloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
the goat-footed baloonMan whistles

e. e. cummings (follow link for proper spacing)

... space is so important ... the space between people, the space between words, the space between lines ... relationship ... shape the space around you ... i do this exercise all the time (i rediscovered when working with pre-schoolers):
Look for things on the ground, pick one up and carry it for a while & then put it down somewhere, perhaps in a place carefully chosen, perhaps just anywhere. Then look for something new to carry... never end.

... this works in many environments & dimensions ... carried whiskey river whiskey river around for days as the last posting seemed many days downstream & it was about blog suicide / today was able to put it down next to mud-lucious with the other wordpoolplays found in the current of the rivertime ...
