the complexities of silence

img_20180926_160516794

 

It was a period of silent contemplation.

Away from previous distractions and illusions.

It was an adventure into other realities

and a questioning about things like this.

 

I return to things like this

and I’ve been thinking again

about creative process, how and

why do we do what we do?

 

Painter, song writer, potter,

dancer, musician, actor.

What is this mysterious energy

entertaining us all?

 

Enter this beyond I know

so very well, the back of my hands,

the inside of eyelids, thighs,

mapping you to my home.

 

And the very bones of me,

and the meat, absent of me,

and the soul of every move I make,

and the complexities of silence.

I had been thinking about underneath

the complexities of silence

and how much deeper it can go

before we are only the dance?

fāz/Past Perfect

Past Perfect

This painting is a meditation; a contemplation, on the child, youth and young man in me.

This is an icon of innocence; a tete-a-tete with the spirit of longing, aging and the illusion of time; an understanding that he is still part of me, always was and always will be, and always still needing my love and recognition that makes him real and makes me whole.

This image is also a tender letting go of all that I have been at every age so none may become an obsession.

I embrace and release every moment of my life, like breathing…
