Express Me

Express Me ~~~~~ Art must be thrown ahead of what is happening now, like a quarterback’s pass must be thrown to where a receiver will be, not where they were when the pass was thrown. Similarly, I must decide what art is for me, besides pretty pictures. What appeals to me, mostly isn’t typical, but […]

Near Maverick’s Beach

Near Maverick’s Beach ~~~~~ Sitting near the breakwater, listening to someone’s music, the gentle murmurs of waves.

Whether we are single or joined, guardians of children or only ourselves and each other, we all travel together. Our ship will not sail, […]

Lifts Me Up

Lifts Me Up ~~~~~ Deep within the cathedral of your eyes The eternal light of your love glows forth. It blazes like the crisp morning sunlight Seen through stained glass, surrounding Me in color, beauty, warmth and wonder, A thermal, that lifts me up to soar high. I sail on unseen wings, over vistas pure, […]
