it's not so much the object that causes the spots
that attracts the attention
(I must admit, that in this case I haven't even thought about looking for the origin
of the bright spots of light on the cellarfloor)
but the spots themself are pretty
unexpected and joyous
an element in architecture -- oriental playful lighteffects
through perforated shades
and now, seeing these spots, I am reminded
of a painting by maillol
on it a young lady, sitting on a bank
umbrella next to her
but she is not important
not more than, for instance, the funny pallissade
of thin stakes
or the jubilant sunny background of green fields
no, the most important in this picture
are the wild patterns on the large sandy floor
drawn by the shadows of the branches above
(branches that are hardly depicted by the painter)

(Aristide Maillol, Femme assise Ć  l'ombrelle, 1892)

once it was a printer's workshop
today it is a mere house for sale
too big for me to use as my painter's studio
though the setting is not alltogether bad

just in time, they call it
well, a fortnight early
but, someone has to cut out the nose
the eyes, those fearfull teeth

and the plant deposited its pumpkin
orange and round
just on the mailbox
didnt reach the pillar

can't imagine, that in just a few weeks
it should be november...
"it's a funny time of year"
(thank you beth)
