all eyes following
the white glove

horns and reeds compete
with gulls

marking time
the surf and a distant light

intermittently the moon
through the clouds

between silences
a ship's bell

dance among the stars

a thunderclap

Sounds like my kind of live, outdoor event, Gene! So vividly captured and makes me think slightly of The Sorceror's Apprentice: must be those Mickey Mouse gloves and musical animation! :)) Just leaves me to add the pitty-patt of rain marking the applause... Fabulous! xx

Maestro! The three B's are surely jealous of this etude my dear friend. Your quill a baton of immense ability. Jealous I am. But more than that, grateful to be able to enjoy your song of love for things natural. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael

Lovely, Gene.
About the same time, I played three straight days at a beer festival near the Space Needle. The music, for those of us who heard it, was actually good. The the real symphony, in contrast to your tranquil one, was played out by the increasingly raucous crowd.
S here's my BIERFEST

No one following
The rules

Horns try to compete
With girls

Failed sound sytem
Hiss, crackle, blatt

Cancelling the beat
Cowboy yells

Constant sun
No clouds

Clinking glasses
Burp. belch

Time lapses between
The bars

"You can't quit now!"

Just for the fun of it. And it actually was.

Gene - Thanks for allowing me to feel the coolness of a night on the beach on this hot day in Georgia. Love the simplicity of the images. Especially liked the sound of:

all eyes following
the white glove

horns and reeds compete
with gulls

and the ending,

a thunderclap

Good one. - David
