1st morning back Jan 16th 2017



Oh drawing I have missed you.
You are the best of who I am.
You are kind,
not short, not irritated.

Without you I am wanting
but with you I can see.

Without you I am anxious
but when I slip back
between your sheets
I am at peace.

Your relentless lessons
have taught me to be humble,
without flare. With you today
I will learn again.

Without you I am a vacuum
filled only with self doubt,
insecurities and need.

You are difficult, for sure,
but with you I see beauty 
and in form finding, a quiet.

In age you see the history, 
the girl and the woman.
In attitude
you see fragility.

You search for the truth.
You are inquisitive.
Sometimes you conceal
but you never lie.

Approached with caution,
with respect
and you are a true and
honest friend.

I am yours.

Be mine 
and drawing
please don’t ever leave me.

Slipping back into your velvety graphic
I feel a peace.

Blue water, coral and sparkling fish
can not compete with your calm.

Lapping azure cannot 
ease me like your lines.

Only by seeking the truth
will you reward.
Style, fakeness, cleverness
is punished.

I am held by your tranquility
and suspended
I am calm.

In your practice I see
beauty. I am kind
not short, not irritated.

Naked she sits.

I have the privalidge
to see her truth,
the truth drawing shows me, life.

Muscles of a life lived
through time sits
still here with us
as we learn
from her form.

Privileged we are
to have this time
to learn from life.

I am a drawer
not a snorkeler
not a deep sea diver
or cliff top rider.

I am a viewer
a looker.
Not a doer.




A4 Drawing No.15 Jan 2017

How could I have been so stupid to leave your lessons, to empty my head of all but anxieties.
Thank you for staying.
I will not leave you again.

With you I am
who I am now,
here, not who I
could or should
or want to be.





A4 Drawing No.17 Jan 2017

Truth is rewarded 
kindly.

The peace you give
has to be earnt,
has to be taught
from time with you.

It can not be bought
can not be faked.

You are generous
but take you for 
granted
you are cruel.

It's a beautiful
but not straightforward 
relationship.

For me the immediacy in front 
of life can not be
mimicked.

Lack of courage, laziness
is punished.
