A Drinking Song

BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS 

Wine comes in at the mouth

And love comes in at the eye;

That’s all we shall know for truth

Before we grow old and die.

I lift the glass to my mouth,

I look at you, and I sigh.

Bird’s Eye View

My latest digital painting.  The pixels are still wet.

It’s called “Bird’s Eye View.”
It’s about magical healing.

Annie’s Song

This is my first flute recording written to help with transitioning from my dear cousin Annie’s death at the early age of 60.

Algal Bloom, a Digital Painting by M. D. Friedman

The inspiration for this piece came from being locked into an eye to eye connection with an alpha frog in a nearby wetlands. I was enjoying the connection, feeling his wildness, as we somehow morphed together in a primordial forest, very peaceful yet somehow always underneath what I normally perceive as the wetlands…

acrophobia (on a painting by Pat Orban)

Painting by Pat Orban

acrophobia
rain bites skin
chills bones
among warm speckled rays
thunder hems & haws    clears its throat of sky
lilac whiffs with languid wind    and that smell
when rain first tames the dust brings me
to who I am (in this cage of dying skin)
the old man rambled    can’t work in the lightening
I had to agree    it was a yellow afternoon
and there is no place better to stand
than where your feet meet the ground
I wouldn’t go up there either
not if I had a say
not now        probably never

I Shot the Serif (on a painting by Pat Orban)

Painting by Pat Orban

I Shot the Serif
these bricks
I labor to layer
like sturdy scars
imprison me
as certainly as
the runaway train
roaring through my brain
jumps the track of reason
sharp barb lurks in the dark
the point is silence
I move between the taste
of rust and blood
hook slides from jaw
with the simplicity of gravity
I swish free smoothly slipping
beneath the quivered surface
burnt dusk oozes from the eye of night
cloistered with pain and wormy delusion
the dangling trap drifts beyond
I forage shimmering in the infinite dawn
