A collusion of wind, sea, and sky
I am strung out, set to dry all too soon
Chin to toe, seen through a chink in the eye of the mind
Breathless, a restlessness stirs up vortical checklist
Paint laid out to an ear’s deafness
I find myself wandering still
Wind-washed, lent footsteps, stepped back from me
Never following through
Left this teeter-edge sky to hold balance
But all too soon stumbling
Rolling with the tides and thunder
Which waters will wash my hands?
Which wind will weather my will?
Watercolours are the fashioning of thoughts luminal
Laid out on paper liminal
Such a space I inhabit,
So I peel all the acrylic ever covering my eyelids
And spread, body wash primer
Blues launched into blues, fell through
Spread self and soliloquy into Spring susurration.
My form became a flower
