Remains



Remains

Not as obvious as they were,
as remembered when a child,
coming up with a story.
How they ended up there. 
So many storms have come,
and gone.
Less remains.
Maybe a story?

A Glimpse



A Glimpse

Wonder sometimes
if there is more
captured in a glimpse.
Wonder sometimes
if there is less
with time to stare,
and question what is.

A quick warm up sketch before the long pose in a session with “R” as the artist,  a couple of days ago.

Artist Interrupted



Artist Interrupted

An awkward moment.
Solitude invaded.
A lifetime in progress.
Interrupted again.


“R” was playing the part again. Had on his artist costume for us to draw and/or paint him in.
Sketched in a session with “R” last night.

Between



Between

Alone on a too
well maintained path.
Started at the end.
Pretending not to know
where it begins.
Wished it went somewhere
I had never been.

Walked with a ghost
I knew though had never
walked with before.
Pretending not to know
We had been on the path
Before.


Went for a long walk over the weekend on a path along a local river only heard, hidden within the summer foliage.
