‘Jim’ – Spoken Word Art

Recently, I’ve begun to experiment with sharing my poetry in video format, combining the words with images and music to bring the stories to life. My first effort, ‘Jim,’ is below. ❀️

The Painting That Kick-Started My Intuitive Art Journey

Many artists fondly recall one particular painting, sculpture or visual project that set them on the path that they needed to follow, or gave them a sense of clarity and direction. For the last eleven months, I’ve been creating intuitively channelled paintings. The project that kick-started this journey for me – seven whole years before…

‘Petals’ (a Poem)

The path was strewn with petals. Fading daylight Rested on your fingers Your chest Your eyes That would never again Behold the changing seasons: Never marvel at the spring buds That appear in warmer days, Or watch birds taking flight, Turning towards home As winter closes in. They reminded us: Love is never lost. The…

A Reflection for Those Who See Humour in All Things

You were always the class clown. On dull mornings, your friends knew you would be there with a laugh, a smile, or a wayward remark that would likely be met by a swift reprimand. You injected every moment with a delicious whiff of mischief, and spent many drab hours sitting outside the principal’s office for…

‘Fall Away’ (a Poem)

Step back Into dreams That have fallen away. Those hopes that held your heart Are calling again: Louder now, A piercing note that cuts through the din.

‘Quiet in the Garden’ (a Poem)

Here is a draft called ‘You Linger – Still.’ ❀️ You linger – still –In the half-forgotten worldOf memory, myth-making, magic….

‘As Peace Breathes Through Your Restless Mind…’ (a Poem)

This is the first draft of a poem I’m working on for my second anthology, which may be released in 2020 … or may be released in 2021, depending on how my year goes. 😁 Regardless, I hope you enjoy! Let the rigid heat of perfectionism Give way to your humanity. Let the masks fall…

Solstice: the Deepest Night

Seasonal depression has often made its presence known in my life. As the days darken, my own thoughts tend to take on a heavier tone too. Over the years, I have learned to bask in the subtle blessings of winter: to honour the energy of contraction, of turning inward, of withdrawal and reflection. On the…

‘Where You Breathe’ (a Poem)

They are fragile: Delicate as a freshly spun web, But with the might to carry legions. They linger in morning light A cooling mist The first drops of rain When drought has struck. They have beaten against your brow For too long: These treasures hidden From prying eyes From ceaseless sorrow From those who could…
