dope vignette

i hang out my clothes on the line

on a still grey day

it is exactly the right temperature according to my skin

some soft summer i move in

garfish swim through the sea pool

then raspberries and banana

coffee no sugar

smoke the good bush

lovely music from somewhere

drifting through the universes

beyond all chagrin

the clouds are white and curling about

they billow above the billows below

life is quiet in the empty communal garden

the bees half asleep even as they hum through the air

the pollen guiding them everywhere

i go inside so dark and cool

i lay on a bed of dreams and wait

beautiful dreamer a wake unto me

the pleasant fall into the mind

yeah take me somewhere else for a while

i am out of ideas

and its time to take time

    Beautiful Steve..really so..sleepy bees buzzing in mid air, I have had the pleasure of two hives….the most divine perfume wafting in to my room ever! they were such lovely companions too. Sadly the land lord killed them

    All good ideas take time to form…just keep watching them clouds those pools…transpire……maybe they need to travel to the Himalayas and through the Amazon first to bring back fruitful currents and new whispers?

    Nice. Taking time to take time takes a little time. Just take a little time with taking time is the best way to take time with your time.

    Silky caterpillar
    Alights on your shoulder
    Stitches little witchetty grubs
    Embroidering half stars
    On each lapel
    Avoiding labels
    Cradled in ladle

    Something tells me I shouldn’t believe you.

    Somewhere else, you say?

    Deep in the land of midnight snoring
    Things get never ever boring
    Generating crackling sparks
    Copper, magnets, doves and larks

    Sending power, peace, and bliss
    float on gentle foggy mist
    find your target, quiet stealth
    health and wealth and wealth and health
    Surrounding all in brilliant light
    Love and guide them through the night

    Your Friend in Pennsylvania

    Here is an ideas Jar

    Get Nebuchadnezzar out to play…in all his glorious psychedelic extravagance…..with a collection of totally random bizarre objects and muse away…… allow the minions of distant lands to visit the harbour of dreams……….

    Can we please see the Adventures of Neb?….out on the road of life……funny movies with Kilbey soundtrax…is there any footage of that old Church (non band ) Neb gig you did????

    I found the entry of the ordinary to be totally liberating creatively…..cause it speaks volumes…taking it to audiences and translating into into finances that is another matter…you are much more adept at that

    Rest is good too. Space is supreme
