The Whole Shebang

 Complete images from work currently hanging, through February 26th, at Illahe Gallery at 4th & Main…with poems.

“Snow Creatures”
 
I reach across the sky to you

With Creation’s Sistine touch

Deep communion

Arcs Self to Self

One Self

Reunion.

Canyons”

In dark clefts

Between towering walls of darkness

All seems lost



I wander

Vanquished from hope

Absorbed by black

 

Yet time passes

Earth turns

In my wilderness of night

Appears a shaft of light

 

Looking up

My towering dungeon glows

Deeply burnt

Oranges, purples, reds

Warmth radiates

Nourishment as honey to my lips

 

Above me

Through water-worn canyon walls

Appears high heating sun

There all along

I had but to wait

For light to rise

And come ‘round again

 

I had but to wait

For the blessing of light

To know my Valley is not a trapped dungeon of despair

But a carefully carved path of earth

Blessing my night with color in forms of grace

A marvel of elemental communion

 

Small me

Blessed to know the dark

The light

The color

The grace…

I breathe.
