Emotional Spaces

The Essence of Emotions


May 2017

Art is Beautiful

Art is beautiful
Whichever form you adopt and behold,

Some draw it
Emotions in strokes light and bold;

Some paint it
With myriad colours from their soul,

Some sculpt it
Turning nothingness to a beautiful whole;

Some photograph it
Freezing the moment that won’t come twice,

Some play it
Music when words don’t seem to suffice;

Some sing it
Melodies that could make the Divine sigh

Some dance it
Lost in a trance even the dancer can’t say why;

Some ink it
Wearing their art on their skin,

Some swallow it
Oblivious to their art within;

Some weave it
thread by thread with the fabric engage,

And I write it
Breathing life into words page after page.

Note: This is to all the artists who wear their arts on their sleeves..
Sometimes seen, sometimes unseen!


Unfolding Love

Our unfolding love…
A honey-glazed dawn
in your orange pekoe sky
My scarlet heart sunset
now flowing freely
through your crimson veins.
My mountains heave and sigh
my valley no longer dry
as you infuse me with the freshness
of a dewy lavender
on moon-kissed musky nights

Forms of Love (A Hay(na)Ku*)

comes in
many different forms

*Week 19 Hay(na)ku of our 2017 Poetic Resolution. Hay(na)ku is a tercet (three line poem) with one word in the first line, two in the second, and three in the third/last line. No restrictions beyond that. 




With every choice I make
Every chance I take
I unfold a bit of me like
The Amaryllis revealing its hidden colour
