Poem: Tsunami

The weather is changing,
the ocean stirs,
the waves crash,
toss and churns,
louder and louder.
The people should leave the beach.
I am safe —
at least I think I am safe.
I’m in my apartment.
It overlooks the beach.
It is on the 14th floor.
The waves
are getting bigger.
The water becomes a wall.
The wall subsides
only to form a bigger wall at its wake.
The wall rises towards me.
I smell my fear.
I feel overwhelmed.
I feel also excited.
I’m ready to do something.
I do not run.
I’m ready to fight the tide.
The wall of water blocks out the view from my window.
I hope I remembered to shut the windows.
I hope the windows will withstand the force of the water.
The biggest wave of all approaches.
It crashes.
It missed me.
Nothing happened.
I am spared.
I am spared the fight.
I’m bored.
I have no idea
what to do with this.

“This beautiful painting inspired my poem:”

Le Miroir de l’Amour
by Michael H. Hanson

I wonder if you think of me
when standing on your distant shore
cloaked in Aeolian finery
as lonely as I am heartsore.

I ponder if you greet the night
as I despair the setting moon
gazing upon sparkling twilight
and if my absence makes you swoon.

I fonder than all other men
who offer shallow reverence
send my ardour and acumen
with sweet, undying eloquence.

As heaven mirrored ‘pon the sea
this kiss, luminous, reflects me.

“I can’t believe you want to turn the page,
And move your life onto another stage,
You can change the chapter you can change the book,
But the story remains the same if you’d take a look.”

8 Mini Painting of Nudes

nude paintings

This is a series of paintings of nudes. These paintings are different from the others, in that they are very small paintings 6in x 8in, acrylics on canvas.

I find a lot of freedom painting these. They are little, sketchy and free. So they are as candid as they get. Painting these allows me to easily express myself in the brushstrokes. Very relaxing, indeed.
It’s small size, and unframed.
