in my heart

what i have been meditating on….

good or bad, my actions do not define me.
only i know what is in my heart
therefore
i cannot possibly know
what lives in another person’s heart
& should not judge them by their actions.

above left: “let’s save the species” 8X8 charcoal pencil & soft pastel on watercolor paper…$55
above right: “those meddling kids…they might just save the world” 9X12 charcoal pencil & soft pastel on watercolor paper…$75

all of these were done by making an ink stain & finding an image in the stain…you know, reading the universe’s tea leaves.

honey bee

he woke up suddenly. wondering. trying to remember
the last time he had seen a honey bee.
he can remember summers as a boy when it seemed
every clover crawled with them & running barefoot
would surely result in a stinger in the arch…
between the toes.
calling out in pain to bring mother running so she
could soothe you with an ice cube and soft whispers
of how you got hurt…but the bee died.
he wanted to be a farmer all his life. he lived
for tractor rides. hide & seek in the cornfields.
the smell of fresh cut hay.

lately my stories begin with scribbled thoughts inked over with drawings. i am not sure ever if i will continue the story or if it will live out it’s life as a post on my blog…. maybe one day i will come back through my journals & collect them all.
