A poem to brighten the day

When the day is grey

Take heart that

The rain will come

And the garden will grow

 

It has always been this way

Since the beginning of time

That these times will pass

So new seeds will sprout

 

Stronger and more resilient

There is peace in this knowing

That these times of turmoil

Can make tomorrow a brighter day

If you will stay

A poem to brighten the day

The ground appears harsh and barren giving the feeling that no matter how hard one tries nothing will be produced, or so it may seem. The grey clouds above appear not as a threat but as a sign of fertility (growth) being returned by the rain. It is about growth, perspective, time and the importance of shared information. Passing on our stories to provide a guiding light of wisdom. This light is emphasised in the bright red stroke symbolising the edge of a piece of paper, a reminder that poetry is about passing on our information .

 

About My Poetry Art Prints

The art that accompanies my poetry is a type of abstract expression of the theme and/or emotion that the poem conveys. I do not use paint brushes instead I collect leaves, bark, stones, flowers, seeds or whatever interesting shape I find on a walk out in nature or in my garden, then I dip them in the paint to discover different patterns, I also use artist palette knives to enhance these shapes.

 

As I am painting through a process of experimentation it does not always turn out the way I imagine so I must re-imagine persisting through trial and error. The final art piece may then be the accumulation of three or four attempts painted over each other. However it is the “mistakes” that are ultimately the guiding light that contribute to the formation of the end result.

 

I take my inspiration from observing the world around me and I learn through the process of experimentation. For me to experiment is to discover.
