How often do you hear
The wind whirl
See leaves swirl
As thoughts go unremarked
The engine searches at speed
While the mind slows to stop
Switched on to switch off
Images dance across as fairytales
What happens next?
Record, play, pause, stop
What was just missed?
Constantly distracted life goes on
Reminiscent of the blue screen of computers displayed as a sort of whirlpool that sucks us in. The poem is presented as if it has appeared on the screen as a reminder to switch off and get some necessary time outside.
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.
