Water




for the longest time i've felt the pull to relocate
 
this land has been in my family since the early 70's
  there is a connection here
but it's not home

  logistics of moving seem overwhelming
but the pull....

 awoke this morning to the whisper of water
all day..... water

felt drawn to read my coffee grounds...
 
do you see
 
fish... tail breaking the surface
the spray
can you smell the slick body
returning to the liquid womb

...water

Demons Don't Like Fresh Air

one of the views from
today's hike
red tail hawk
egrets
wild duck
soul soothing

picked this up on my hike
won't take much carving
to reveal it's face

Born To Howl




yesterday
full moon
i'm always affected by the full moon
because i'm bipolar

i was born under a full moon




born to howl

want to see if you were born under a full moon?
go here and change the 2018 in the top most search
line to the year of your birth.

Baby Steps

well....
at least i got to carve
frustrating when i can't make
my hands use my mind's eye
if i'd practice every day
maybe
it's just not in me
to do that

this was a limb from a dead cherry tree
'bout two fingers wide
i'd rather be outside 
chainsaw carving
 
not in all this pollen
it'll have to wait

Jonesing For A Little Carving


the lengths i'll go to
to be able to carve
when i don't have a shop
and can't be out in the pollen

is it gonna make a mess in my studio
you betcha!
do i care
nope!

i can write myself notes in the
dust

My Tree Spirit

she's up
if you listen closely to a piece of wood
it will tell you the wisdom and secrets
that wind and rain whispered to it over
its lifetime

wood
stone
prayers
blessed

Back To Center

the beginnings of a tree spirit
for my sculpture garden

her head carved from a cedar stump
the body a limb that broke on my
pecan tree last year

i've had to work on her between rains
as i don't have anywhere to work
out of the weather
just cover her with the tarp 
to cut down on drying time
when wet 

it's been a cold...wet...winter here
i've been holed up inside
reading
studying
it gladdens my heart to be able
to work outdoors again
meditative
healing
working my way back
to  center

Who Does The Remembering?

Beneath the Mask





i arrange my face 
to give others the version of myself
least likely to unsettle them

experimenting today with joint 
compound on wood

Burned Into Bone





a tree begins its life
 reaching for the light
and ends up
standing in the light

i find myself reaching less
"being" more
shrouded with memories
burned into bone

Messengers




the dead send messages
on the wings of birds

in the language of loss
 
i sit in silence
listening
 
wounds so heavy
only silence helps
carry them

Empty





is it longing that moves the sea?

 listening
the wind whispers your name
through the hole in my heart
 empty of even haunting
