A Writer’s Prayer

Waterman Perspective Fountain Pen in Black

The Writer                                                                                                                       

                1                                                                              2

     I am a writer                                                        I write to give life

You have made me so.                                         to hidden glories untold,

   I am not an author                                            to bring up, encourage

             (of yet)                                                        to free the captives that

          not a poet                                                      cannot write clean their souls

        not a lyricist                                                    in iron clad confessions

      nor a song writer

 

3

Help me, O Lord

to bear well this

gift of might,

the iron pen,

with a true heart

and noble spirit.

Let me not write

curses of death

unto others, but life

abundant in all

experiences.

Living Inspired

I have been inspired for the last 8 years or so from random images that bring a thought into fruition. It’s my favorite game to play with a magazine. A random picture of a chest drawer turns into a commentary about how each of us has too many drawers, drawers we never open, and drawers that are full of pain, secrets, and lead us into depression, destruction, and the like. Deep. Deeply disturbing that I can come up with all that from a  boring furniture sales mag. Seriously? Yep. That’s me. That’s how I operate. And thats usually the process i create art. Whether it’s a greeting card, a multimedia canvas piece, or random things i put together, it’s usually inspired by a t-shirt i saw in passing, a snipet of sunset, a magazine pic, or something random.
