Poem: White, pure, and untouched by life…

||  Bio  ||  Artist Statement ||


White pure and untouched by life
a dialogue yet begun
the unspoken words that begin each new relationship
I love it I fear it I want it I need it
we spend time being with each other
getting familiar with our space and energy
our passion growing
the tension expanding into all parts of our lives
until we can’t stand it and then wait some more until we explode
a relationship of honesty
being seen for who we are being at the moment
feeling each other tremble delight in touching
an interaction in silence with great struggle pain and disorientation
we join then stop not able to go any further
our beings resting sleeping waking crying with acknowledgement
that soon the details will build on the base established
an understanding of where we come from to be
elaborated on in strokes more defined like circuit boards
blindly trusting that machines will put them together
in perfect order our hands reach out grabbing the
connecting thread easing the torment and stilling
the thoughts of fear for missing the connection
timing aligned space providing accessibility
each surrendering to the pull of what is
the ultimate now only complete when balanced
capturing essence on canvas
the painting of emotions
my life is full existing in a state of grace
decision commitment responsibility merge
and all is well with the world
cycling only to begin again
white pure and untouched by life
