December Flying Carpet 2017

In December the Flying Carpet 
swoops into your world
after the hilarity and silliness of the season
 
 
and coziness 
and hopefully merry and bright
 
 
and the dazzlement of lights
filling the darkness
 
 
and the “chill of a wintry light”
and the early closing of our days
 

 it's time to look to new genesis
 
 
and to open the New Year
 
 
A bumper sticker glimpsed yesterday
says it all:
“Make America gracious again”

In November
The Flying Carpet
Braked not for the bad
but for the good
in the South Valley of Albuquerque
 
The annual 
Dia de los Muertos Marigold Parade
encourages everyone to strut their stuff
in the most outrageous 
celebration of Hispanic culture
 
 
The LOWRIDERS
going low 'n slow
 
 
The DREAMERS out in force
carrying a coffin...
“Don't bury my dream!”
 

 
The BUS People
say “Truth is Power”
 
 
“I just look illegal”
 
 
the VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE
is extant in all her splendor
with roses and shining aura
 
 
This Street Artist is
wearing his Mona Lisa Catrina
 
 
Everyone goes all out!!!!
 
 
 
Special thanks to Sialia and Jacob
 
 
and Marianna
who's always up for adventure

October Flying Carpet 2017

In October
The Flying Carpet
wanders gardens of autumn delight
taking solace from the chaos

Riotous begonias
before a morning of windowed frost


 A color poem of ivy


and Autumn Blaze Maple


One last heavenly morning glory
clinging to slanting shadows
 

Brave fall crocuses
transitory
giving threads of saffron
 

Intricacy of clematis
 

“Quincey” laden with fruit...
the apricot leaves making a golden
bed of sleep for winter
 

We bring the echeveria 
and the plectranthus
inside to feast on lingering bloom
 

and wish you an aspen glyph Halloween
 

Special thanks to Sialia, Sarah, 
and Gail and Zack
for letting The Flying Carpet
ripple through your morning gardens

September Flying Carpet 2017

In September
the Flying Carpet got blasted off course
by a Rocky Mountain High
 
 
Calder Mobiles suspended
in lily pond grays
at the Denver Botanic Garden
 
 
The Zeppelin Zooms
at TAXI in Denver
 
 
Wacky creativity runs amok
in a fantabulous jumble
at the studio of Susan Wick
 
 
“If walls could talk”
they'd sound a cacophony
in downtown Denver
 
 
early morning droplets
at Grand Lake
 
 
In the twinkling of an eye
The Flying Carpet believes
that there are still wondrous moments
in this broken world
 
 
Special thanks to Daniel
 
 
and Olivia
