When You’ve Nothing To Say…

Go ‘Throwback Thursday’!

I’m still unpacking (shush now) and came across a folder of artwork – prints, kids’ early work, keepable greeting cards – all that stuff. Also, this photo of an original art piece done by my friend Cory LeBlanc, an Ottawa Indie art scene regular. It was done several years ago, oil pastel of my eyes. My favourite bit is the rusty-brown ‘witch mark’ in my left eye.

Hue

Colour me in sin
Cinnamon
Angel dust
Disguised as lust

Paint me a view
Me and you
Good luck token
Our eyes wide open

Brush me in tones
Skin to bone
A perfect shade
Of love we’ve made

Your tone my hue
An artist’s view
Words I fashion
Abstracts of passion

Painter, Poet Artist, Muse
Love gained, hearts we lose
I pen our Infinity
You paint our Unity

Shade, tone, tint and hue
Hearts of me and you
We blend together
In the art of forever

Heightened

Your voice is an echo kissing my ear

Your scent is sandalwood and verbena

Your taste is a lingering temptation on my tongue

Your touch is tactile elation on my skin

Your image shimmers behind my closed eyelids

Wrapped in all that I can touch… scent, taste, see and hear
Thoughts rushing headlong from Past to Present tense
And I long to reclaim and leave behind my fear
And to trust once again in my sixth sense

The Five Senses by Hans Markat

Contused And Conflicted

I’m black and blue all over
Feels like four rounds with Ali
But the bruises are invisible
Because my opponent is me

I’m bleeding blood and roses
In spilled ink and tattoos
But I can’t forego this dark Muse
Because my assailant is you
