enough

Wishing this poem I wrote for my 2016 book “painted poetry” did not continue to be so relevant....



America

     you want to be

     United

     we fight and tear and bleed

     we are free

     we are not united

     we are not safe


America

    you want to be

    Respected

    we fight and tear and bleed

    you take care of your guns

    you take care of your powerful

    but not the womb which

    produced

    effervescent greatness

    but not the children who

    would have reached

    greatness


America


     We want to be free

     United

the artist song

written and performed by @carrieableart

...

...


A shadow falls...

On a sunny day...

In the month of...

The spring’s May...

A sadness calls...

Unprovoked...

Within...

Calling upon Art...

To depend...

For even in the Shadows of Spring...

You will hear...

The Artist’s Song...

Sing.

The Warmest Cool

The light casts...

A tepid hue..

Its shadow creating...

A warmer Blue...

The heat of the sun...

Reflections make...

A cascade of colors...

Cool Reds....

And warmer Blues...

Dancing together..

As vibrant hues...

In both..

Light and Shadow.

storm

Wanting the words...

To calm your storm...

Then I see...

The rain rounds...

The lightening lingers...

Over you...

In a different sea...

Even while you stand...

Next to me...

And there I will be..

By your side...

With a light bright enough...

To guide our way..

old headshot day

ten years and twenty lbs ago when i did a lot of Japanese commercials #oldheadshotday i think the most interesting one I did was a Shiseido commercial with Koyuki who at the time was the biggest supermodel in Japan (you may remember her from the movie the Last Samari). She had assistants that followed her everywhere with umbrellas so her skin had never seen direct sunlight. I always appreciated the Japanese castings more than American castings because they seemed to care about more than just looks.
