In the process of finalizing the painting with the last touches of brush strokes, something within me felt it wasn't expressed yet in a certain way. As I put down my brush and paint, I sat down on the comfortable couch of my living room across the easel with the newly birthed art piece. Another process starts. What was expressed from the deepest depths of my heart, what was lying dormant in the crevices now saw the light of day, and with my physical eyes I soaked up the colors, movement, rhythms. And from the rhythms words start to express, first as impressions, little nudges from within, and then sentences formed. First the title of the painting emerged, and then the rhythm became letters words and words had meaning a poem was born. And the crevices dissolved.
It is with my greatest delight to share these words with you. It started with the title of each painting, in support of the deeper meaning behind the painting. Then the poems arrived. Most of the Art cards that can be purchased in the shop have their poem on the backside. I am building a collection of poems which will be published in the near future.
For now, enjoy some poems on this page.
Open your heart, relax & listen
I want to show you now
With the impatience of a child
and pull you into my full presence
Draw you in all my particles
Feel the vibrancies of all potential
are right within you
Watch and experience what once was thought to be desert, has turned into golden particles.
Is this the imagination of a child or truth?
The mind may wonder,
let it rest in your heart
As truth can be found through imagination of the heart and experienced in and through your very being.
