details like a scrap of paper

at a bus stop looking

closely a fortune cookie no cookie

“you are talented with your hands” thanks

the Gift and the Practice that

comes with it reminder:

talent alone won’t save us because Vigilance

and cookies are so delicious to my mind

sometimes Even talented

hands miss messages

like scraps of paper

through fingertips crunch

of sugar egg flour fortunes from

strangers we make marks always

before outcomes like

my heart now and the light

downtown sun rays golden filtered through silver clouds ground damp and cold cozy inside.

I wonder if the sun knows what

sunlight looks like to my eyes now

like gifts from strangers I am found reflecting

of course not, that’s impossible

like walking or breathing or life based on Carbon

smile thankful

there are muscles in the face that if you squeeze them right

they make you happy

how cool is that!

Original Contemporary Art works by Zalman Berkowitz. Paintings are oil on canvas and mixed media, canvas. 36″x24″ dimensions variable.

 

How fun! I am enjoying how designs can fit together in new and interesting ways. In particular, here are two paintings, Cala and Moment, creating a third with lots of possibility. It so wonderful to design on a square! Further evidence. Enjoy!

All great things,

-Zal.

Alls fair in love and war

don’t act like ya never heard

This B4

And what is more

virgin mother crone

seductive temptress

Sultry Vixen

And the home alone

Fixin the kitchen

That Drone… and old bones and

Alls fair in Love and War

Don’t act like ya never Heard [this B4]

Flowers are Flowers

I let them

Be as they are

Beautiful

A time for that

A time for this

All out raging, seething

Fiery

Serene Bliss

Peaceful

Miss, equal

Alls fair in love and war

Don’t act like ya never heard [this B4]

What is more

Or less, nowness

A guess, giving your best

Accept the test

Funny

how we spin things

Unburden your self and…

ya get to feel

Spring, well

Spring of emotion

this eternal unending

all-ways bending

constant

Motion…

Foot

on the floor, arms holding

sky while the sand drips

by

where the hand grips

so am I

Not what you say but

how you say it

annunciate

or just spray it

not what the words mean

feeling

intention, belief

suspension: relief

CONTENTION : peace

tension… release

An idea that’s a part of the whole

a heart and a soul

and that’s all

who knows what fate has

In Store…

All is…

Fair, in Love and War

Don’t act like ya never heard

This, B4

Where there is love-

There

Is no question

Manifestin’

the learn lessons

Creates so well

She’s

The

invisible indivisible

phantastic phanta-SEA

magically permeatin’ the visible

breeze

carried almond honeysuckle thick

temperamental

growin right

out yer mental/physical temple

Hair

and

All’s Fair

In Love and War

Don’t act like ya never heard

This, B4

Looks of longing and loneliness

Forgotten and remembered Bliss

This, B4…

Nothing

of value is Ever

lost

celebrate movement

practice improvement

happiness IS

chocolate

bitter-sweet dark kissing orange spice

A little kick of cayenne, nice

right, right

color your perception how YOU prefer

re-member

it’s what yer living for

Experience

Open

All IS

Fair in Love and War

-don’t act like ya never heard

This B4

chosen

between what is sincere and insincere

between dreams and what appears

between what is revered

and Earth Children’s tears

between our love and fear

where hope lives

hope…

Belief.

All is fair in Love and War

Who knows what Fate has

in-store

heights and Depths

dreamt and explored and

All’s fair in Love and War

Don’t act like ya never heard

 

Because you’ve never heard
