Thankful I am
For a thoughtful mind
A beating heart
And a searching soul
Even when the heart has bled
When hate whispers goodbye
The heart will not die
Mindfulness of the wider world transcends
From one life to another
Inscribing the human condition
When we share in life’s blessings
Abandoning the pain
The sun comes out again
Gratitude is displayed as a path of sunshine, partly it is obstructed to enhance the sense of searching for this hard to find place. Painted by using flowers displays it as a delicate and often difficult place to come to especially when the idea of gratitude is often misrepresented to dis-empower the oppressed. The greenery of the forest around the path reminds us that we live in a world of plenty, realising this unveils the path.
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.
