Late -- Poetry 2011
Defying logic and reason should be on my resume.
Who else would commit to releasing locked artistic
ability starting at fifty four years old… ten years later,
I’m extremely proficient for an old lady layered in cat
and Corgi fur. Finding my rhythm after relinquishing
it to recovery; switching media to explore idled visions
swings me back to Sumi-e – simple brush movement.
The collages are calm, harmonious and balanced
while the brush accomplishes flying white even
when pursuing whimsical cats, frogs and birds to paper.
And yeah, it was the right thing to do from every angle.
Passion, persistence and patience and practice,
I don't forget those four “P” words…
not aiming for fame, somehow the best things always
come out of this late commitment to expression.
