Poem -

I am going through my files, trying to feel caught up, feeling a bit of mania today as I actually feel somewhat well. How much can I accomplish today, and isn't that what got me here? Hmmmm! How now to balance doing and being, and work as play?

I re-discover this poem, written while I was waiting for the biopsy. I still like it, so here it is.

The Painting Life

I paint with “light portrait pink,”
rose, yellow, burgundy, and gold -
title the result,
Meditation on Becoming Flesh,
Then, Healing Power of My Flesh,
and finally conclude, The Cradle of God -
I place the canvas on a chair
where the painting sits subdued
until a certain time in the late afternoon
when sunlight hits it through the window
and leaves
dance like bubbles
creating a space
for prophets
and monks
to speak -
each day I sit entranced
when shadows dance
aliveness on the skin
of what I made -
feeling inside
the wind
