The wind called my name
So I faced it without fear
I breathed freely in this fresh air
Sweeping away old realms
I had changed direction
I would not surrender
Feeling neither rejection or objection
For a prize I had not sought
Contented by the warmth of my labour
The fruits never tasted so sweet
Even if a little unrefined
This is the field of dreams
Today liberty won
So leave me out in the cold
Satisfaction was paid
By releasing the flame within
The bright orange flame symbolises freedom by reflecting our inner burning desire to find what sets us free. Centered to convey both balance and the importance that freedom brings to our life. The blanket of grey conveys a sense of coldness that signifies how it feels to live in a dystopian world. This is the type of world that is created by enslaving workers with capital rather than setting them free.
However, this is only half the picture the black brings back into focus the fact that we are not the centre of the universe, we are not the most important element, life came before us and we are not the creators nor rulers of that universe. The life force of the universe is represented in the tree reaching down that reminds us of the growth we still have to go through if we want to evolve rather than dissolve all that has been gifted to us here on Earth.
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.
