Prelude & Basso Ostinato, Ballada, Prelude, Harlem Mist, and Angelico (- and – I suppose I may be tempted to leave a Haiku – but – only after listening to Angelico or the previous prelude. Hmmmm – perhaps a Sicilian Tercet…)


Ah, but, I must soon stop hovering and awaken.

(ok- it’s true I did see the sun rise – but – I’m still in that blue hour mode)

Good morning.



(Prelude & Basso Ostinato










(Prelude – from the ”Petite Suite”, performed by M. Henriques)





(Harlem Mist)







(”Angelico” – from Musica Callada  / Book 1 – 1)





Dripping rays of light
trickling through – key after key
as the gentlest rain








(Sicilian tercet)


trickling, A sweet torrent mist in the night,
adrift mid-air then settling  in layers,
wraps yon blue hour as it comes to full height


from that moistened, warm heart that drifts and sails
aloft, mid-air then settling in prayers
as the blanket is woven –  for one’s trails
















Ok – ok – I had seen the following video posted and had saved its LINK  to watch later when I’d come back .
(so I’ll leave it here as well, for when I come back). It was to have been posted yesterday, but I got sidetracked.



Wishing all a nice day –

The Cerulean Lining

Between Night and Day, when… – when
the balance between the ”subjective”
and the ”objective” in sight
is at that magical number, and evened;
when one can still feel the protection
of the blue overcoat, an overcoat that
is there
as a smile of a Cheshire cat that begins to reveal what’s inside and out, as the universe
begins to unravel before our eyes still shielded
from a lining
(a cerulean lining – a cloak of stars / a coated moving marble, the moon dancing in between).
It is such a special moment, in an apparent silence
where the spheres begin to hum to another key
(Another key?).

Speaking of ”keys”, I’ll leave a Tony Williams gem..
I was searching youtube to just bring one of its tracks, but, it’s hard to choose one.
I don’t usually like to place a full recording, but, he’s no longer with us and it is hard to choose.

Wishing all a wonderful week.





Astraeus unBound


There is an absence of Time when dusk comes upon the soft blue blanket, ebbing ever so gently.
I hear only the surface, a supple murmur,
Coeus is shifting
as I sink into Panthalassa’s ghostly remains.
Nothing remains but the soft whisper
growing louder
as each grain pronounces an astral beat
within a song of the ages.
