By your sight, I Am formed Former talks Walk the length of your mind Into mine Turning locks Shaping thoughts In the blink of an Answer I find In the lochs Little forms and The arm of the sea Bent with mine For a time Never lost But restored and Reborn Fire and light Mold […]

A Blend of Art

I visited the Noyes Art Gallery, which includes works of varying mediums from some 24 local artists. Though the gallery features pottery, sculptures, and jewelry, I specifically focused on two dimensional art. My five selections include photography, acrylic paintings, and metal work, which involve contrasting rigid and fluid boundaries. In three paintings, the blurred boundaries […]

The Dance of the Swallows

bench

Quietly content Appetite for food and conversation satisfied Appreciation met The polar side of disappointment sighs   One fallen makes a bench The living sing in whispers, breezes pass A tranquil place to rest Above the ever reminiscent grass   Senses all alert Yet dulled are each disturbance of the mind Input boundaries blur The […]

The Dome of Autumn’s Remnant Shell

trees

Extended skeleton Bent arms or spider web veins on a pale face Fingers make delicate contact Lifting quivering flesh on the breath of past embrace Pinpricked cold charged with recollection Invisible but to inward reflection known Against monochromatic eyes The cry of howling winds and blowing snow   Distance without direction A haze obscures the […]
