dry gourds

~

shake

bottle and swan

goblin egg and warted

~

absorb the rhythm

the rattle of seeds

in their shells

varnished, on a chord

between cupboards

strand of amber

hardened with hanging

~

a nudge in humidity, the least

damp, breath

or sigh, softens

vibration, appreciation

of percussion

  2. Oh I love this line: “goblin egg and warted.” Lovely watercolor – autumn is in the air.

    Now you’ve got me wanting to dry some gourds so I can make the seeds rattle!
