Three Red 3’s

Three red (numeral) threes, sets of three pine trees; three voluminous Picea glauca luminous in the mid-morning sun at Park Road and Spring Street, West of Reading and West of Wyomissing. A ModernFOLD, a lost sheep, pink and all-white plush sheep The letter A, a TNDR FOX all is Vanity Fair. Who’s got the building near Progress Electric? Sycamore three-piece pathling at Berks Leisure area, stream clear with sparkles; along Broadcasting, a flock of birds wings it as motion graphic: some with gliding mechanisms against their bodies, some with wings stretching out, folding in, shimmer and showing their different angles, separately and as a unit – like a school of fish, a fish of schools, a ship of fools, not hardly.

Virginia blue and orange plate special real ordinary JHZ-2737 and reverse 8543 edge of hoodie. Electric Dr. DRE. A Rolls, Royce for breakfast. Sort by…noon. Downslope 6 4 vertical blinds with plants peeking out of slats 2 and a metal mounted mailbox with one instead of 2 supports for when you need to curl up a magazine to fit beneath the envelope compartment. Benchwarmers  – for a Large Sumatra, what a home run there! can you hear me, can you hear me now?

I am Just a Visitor

date stamp FEB 25 @)!& yet a permanent resident dark night of the soul. Tuxedo, a trellis, (Ralph) Ellison. Wind in the pines: two top tassels and their supporting branches sway in the same tempo, divided by central spruce, which, with stiffer needles, remains more stoic and straight. Nature has grown this pattern. The pattern grows in nature. Fill the kitties’ water trough ( a rectangular aqua-lined planter) and now I hear a lapping, lapping, lapping.

Fllower

Started day with ominousodometer; that has changed thanks to the power of transmission. Three flying geese. [Artistic license.] Two shoes, black soft soled along Museum road. Windy satiety. WaWa for fuel. What was green has turned purple. Roses and daisies and arrangements delivered. It would be nice to spend a while in Riverfront’s living room. What a fabulous discovery. R. Messina ’88. Are you there? Maxed out on a coff(r)ee at A+Plus Kenhorst: went well with zebra cake I baked this morning at 7. Want to send out an APB for Man Crafts book that is believed returned to library. Upside down sea jelly pretty cool. Flying saucer!

Three 2 UNO 5

Yesterday was Sir Simon Rattle’s birthday anniversary and I did not get to write about it/him, the one who conducts with a baton so blessing the world. So engaging the sound and compositions from long ago and far away to the ear and how.

Today there are other birthdays and so forth and so ON.

Three. white on black – right edge justified. 2 on emergency vehicle driver side front with a red R, I think red, maybe orange instead; UNO card of undiscovered denomination. Yes, your excellency. 5 on a muni weehicle. V.

RUby Heron

Sunday, January 15, Bing introduced a video of ruby sea monster found in vicinity of southwest Australia. The piece says sea creature is newly discovered, never before seen, mostly because it hangs out at depth below which scuba divers find safe to go. Red sea dragon is not as fancy with kelp- or seaweed-like plumage as its two relatives, whose names escape me precise moment. What it has is resinous brilliant gem quality and color of ruby glass. The footage shows awkward graceful swimmer and fisher – near sand bottom of sea where sponges wave  hula skirts. Its head and neck, its body and angularity are very heron-like. A deep-sea crane.

About four o’clock on Sunday I went for walk at Gring’s Mill. Two people sat by creek on bench constructed from log sawed in half lengthwise so (inner) and flat side faces up; half-round bark portion faces ground. Re-engineered tree is supported at both ends by… something like cement or blocks…and it was on this rectilinear surface two sexes sat, straddled or semi-straddled log, playing cards close to poker.Where is other half -log?

Moisture in air and air in dampness. Soggy and spongy earth soaking saturated even.  Muted sun, trumpet bell of clouds. Drawing down and blaring.

At half-mile rapids, a blue heron waded near bank opposite path, parallel Tulpehocken Road, walking upstream, intent upon finding meal.

Sixty canada geese swimming near bend marking second to last crimp in watercourse before bridge and dam, on return way.

Pathling on screenings two bark shards and Y shape thick twig. Remnants of maple wing seedlings have been worn to bits – resemble hats with plumes.

Also a green and white Orbit gum pack, discarded as emptiness.

Earlier in day read Wickipedia article about Vasco de Gama, who went out of way to avoid crossing “Highly disputed Mediterranean.” Trading for, in search of cinnamon and pepper. An old tower existed in Portugal to honor him, according to a old [sic] Hammond’s atlas. It is long way around Cape of Good Hope, compared to  distance A to B near equator. Startling. Make me think of going around tail of horse careful so it don’t kick.

TYPEWRITER

Please allow me to express mu undying enthusiasm for the darling book called “TYPEWRITER” subtitled: the history * the machine * the writers!

Tony Allan and the Shelter Harbor Press have assembled, written, compiled and printed a masterful, informative and pictorially engaging work. It shows both scholarly research and a playful mind on the part of the author. Thank you for creating this book!

The particular book I read was courtesy of the Main library in Reading, Pennsylvania. A book-plate added to the front inside cover pages have added this book is in memory of Jan L. Deelman and “was purchased with funds donated from his estate.”

The book contains a page devoted to the parts of a typewriter, a diagram as nice as some illustrations of the points of a horse that I’ve seen. Only a typewriter has no soft velvety muzzle, although you can write about one with it.

Was especially delighted to learn about holding a Type In. It would be a riot to plan and host one here in Reading. Hold me to it!
