In memory of Paul Canfield

 

 

hands

 

themselves carved of passion and mystery

mistress to creation’s fashion and misery

 

scultp

beauty chase beastly fear

shavings scatter

fertilize desires …dreams … memories

challenge/cringe

sing/harangue

dare/despair

 

eternal soap opera

sorrow just an other’s cliche

tomorrow just another day

 

on mother earth

confusions pour

delusions reign

hearts strain

art is pain

truths seclude

hands denude

 

but not always patient

to wait for sun’s shadow

to shield primordial doubt

 

tears are wept

faith is kept

 

in our hands
