Rosie's window sill...

Aladdin's lamps
a stroke for good luck
essence of fortunes within
appear right at hand
ready for servitude
three times the fortuity ...

essence of life...
the struggle to survive
the plants that grow
from the cracks in a vertical rock
i get it...

Steinhart Aquarium mural from Murano

This glass mural originally hung in the San Francisco Steinhart Aquarium Entrance, but now it is hung in the aquarium's kitchen hallway, in the bowels of the "backstage" area. I took the photo on my VIP tour 
summer. the card reads: VENETIAN TILE MURAL, Guillermo W. Granizo (1923-1997)
I really like this one. 
The colors of the glass tiles give it a deep transparency.
Nice flow and movement.

green waters ...

into the deep green recesses
of my mind
some thoughts connect
like jellyfish crossing in the night

undersea jellyfish time

under the sea 
a jellyfish lurks
in colour...

reindeer totem

returning, image-wise, to my native saami (northern-artic Finnish) roots here.
The white forked piece is a fall-off from reindeer antler shedding.
reindeer Antler is considered to be strong energy.
I have returned there often in dreams.

the desert wash in summer...

end of summer, longer shadow lines and bluer tones
the plants are crisper after toasting all summer long
mostly dry 'round here
there is an intrinsic beauty to behold.
