Summer (Mother Song)

The universe rotates around
the tiny sparkling atom
that is you.

My love

builds to a crescendo
of perfect pain and bliss
death and creation
connecting us to the eternal.

My mind
My body
My heart
surround you
completely
as if you were all
that ever existed.

You are mine
completely
but you are not mine
at all.

You belong somewhere
I will not be able to follow
you belong to the future
though you carry all the songs
of our past.

Spring (Maiden Song)

She lived here, once
curled up inside
the softest recesses of my body.

 

Staring at the wide blue sky
she lay and soaked into
the soft wet grass

 

One night she stole away
and left him
still, asleep beside me
his brown skin smelling of the sun.

Viva Arte!

Art matters. Design matters. They are not frivolous extras, just hobbies or something done for superficial reasons.

 

Art can be used to build communities, as therapy, to decorate spaces, even to sell products … but it is valuable without doing any of these things.

 

It is important just as it is, with no other purpose than to be Art and to speak to the heart and human soul as nothing else can.
