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

June Flying Carpet 2017

In June the Flying Carpet flew to extremes...
in both Florida and New Mexico...
a world of contrasts:
 
Slithering rain
veiling hazy palm fronds
 
 
Fierce cactus
penetrating the crystal air
 
 
Day-glo heliconia
dripping a viridian raindrop
 
 
Fragility blossom
nestling in a prickly bed
 
 
Drenched waterlilies
glistening upon an inky pond
 
 
Dusty semperviviums
unfolding an invincible spirit
 
 
palm fruits
jazzing a sinuous trash dance
 
 
Pastel echeveria
basking in the radiance
 
 
Dedicated to Henry
Special thanks to Maia

May Flying Carpet 2017

The Light in the darkness  
Zooming in April through  
rural France, Barcelona, 
Lisbon, Sintra and Paris  
has left even The Flying Carpet  
a bit breathless for the last month.  
In La Chartres-sur-le-Loire  
where light and shadow coexist


 Sunbeams are focused 
and imagery magnified
through translucent glass filled with water
in a a brocante that looks like all my dreams


In Montmirail...
spiderwebs capture dawn in the graveyard
 

windows capture iridescence in the gloaming


In Vendome
prisms sparkle in The Church of the Trinity 


In Sintra at Monserrate
light on white on white
 

In Lisbon at Pavilhao Chines
toy airplanes swirl around the ceiling light
 

In Giverney 
 waterlilies luminesce against dark water


light floods the incomparable YELLOW kitchen


Frank Gehry's ship navigating
dimly lit clouds 
at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris
 

If only time would multiply like these reflections
 

 Many years of thanks to Zack
