Swingin on a Star

After: Harlequin’s Carnival by Joan Miro, 1925.PD 
After: Bing Crosby - Swinging On A Star (1944)

I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, 
like notes that shape music.  - Joan Miro

Listen to the mockingbird rings from ear to ear driven in a
frenzy of delight, naysaying the evil torts of Hieronymus 
Bosch’s gardens. Feasting on nature’s foreplay, stringing
leaps of fancy, parading to an oompah-pah, lured by a rendez-
vous with Dali and melted timepieces. 

to fly
to soar
soar unconfined
soar scored
scored notes
scored lines

The bliss of true tones, winged squirmings,
dancing snakes, acrobatic merfolk swinging on stars,
the ensemble gestates.

Cues coil, ping, the clocks tick; let your
wired heart purr. Jack-in-the Box to Jack outside,
take a spoonful of sugar with your medicine, & twirl 
your partner round and round.

    it made my mind go to Bing Crosby in a french Cirque Du Soleil tights - dancing with children and dancing snakes, acrobatic flying around - joy and laughter bright colors

    Like the picture, your poem is a frenzy of delight. The comparison with Bosch is marvelous.
