Urban Contemplation: 09 – Music in the Streets – Painting in the Air

The city series….

The sounds of the streets and the color of music

color takes a form

finding it

only takes

a moment

to listen

hearing the blue

seeing the red

feeling the glow

of fair music

painting in the air


sounds flow like palettes

of greens and yellows

just sitting

by you

feeling mellow



and hearing colors…

and knowing

it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood
