Nice Times

nice times

Hey, I saw some big ol' carp
traversing up the river.
They bit and ate wet blades of grass.
Then made the water quiver.

Yesterday, a swimming snake
cut S shapes in a pond.
His periscope head spied land for a bed
and then the snake was gone.

Slowly we will gravitate
to a stream a pond or lake
We'll walk around to pick up shells
We'll find some flint to flake.

lodge fodder.

This painting is pixelated, compressed, and shitty looking on my website www.janeryder.com. I've been picking up lots of chewed up beaver sticks by the lake and its made me think about this gouache paintin'. Title: Lodge Fodder.
