Directions 

Where to start 

on a blank page. 

The first lines. 

The first shapes. 

And now too late, 

now that it’s done.

Fingertips



Fingertips 

What to do on a Sunday afternoon. 

Squeeze fingertips imaging, 

maybe squishing ants, 

maybe grains of sand, 

in a place offering solitude 

on a Sunday afternoon.

 

Daily sketching of a stranger this afternoon squeezing something in a photo being viewed from a laptop screen.

Reaching it.

in front standing out 

in the crowd. 

Not long enough. 

A glimpse. 

Then gone. 

Another face 

in the crowd.

On the Edge



On the Edge

Seated at attention

as we falter on the edge. 

Falling back again 

into the dark ages. 

 

Daily sketching practice from a photo of another stranger who posed at some point in time, to be sketched, I suppose, from a laptop screen.
