for creation



the sun
tells me you are home
as grey is
always covered
by blue, and the

forming of
life
is reason enough
for creation

your hand
holds life, wet pulsing
with wet, and i

see gifts
only a sea can
provide, wrapped in
foam green to
white

  11. I see life
    everywhere
    in every line
    in gifts and
    questions raised.

    I now remember how much I enjoyed my visits here.

  12. Yes, there are gifts that only come from the sea, and the sea also takes away. I am thinking of Sandy. I heard about a young boy, who went out in the storm to help his frind. Later they were found under a fallen tree. I thought at least they were together, and the one found the other.

  14. A love letter to the painter perhaps - I always think Andrew is worthy. I get great strength from his use of colors and his daring risks working wet and by the sea!
