Picture Window

Poem By Gabrielle Shutt

The summer sky is falling

In featherlight chips of ochre and scarlet.

Like paint peeling off of an old canvas.

Littering the grey cement in tired resolution.

Mourning in brilliant silence the coming of a minimalist's winter

The harsh lines and monochromatic palette

Replacing impressionistic splendor

that was once framed in oak and lace.

Magic At My House

In the closet there is a pair of shoes

The stay in the box kind of shoes.

Clocking Out

Relieve my worried mind, I pray.

With gentle words and salty lips.

Chapter 1

In the beginning there was you.

You were the sun and the moon.

I Have Written

I have written words upon pages, napkins, and receipts,

Enscribed them in the air with fingertips,

Inspiration Strikes

Inspiration is an old 60 watt light bulb

Swinging bare and dusty in the corner of small room.
