Hoof Prints From My Soul
Cloud clumps within my heart –
Reappear in paint
As hoof prints from my soul –
Questions and guesses –
Gathered (often without knowing) through seven decades of living,
As naturally as fog settling – feathered – like thread knit loosely ‘tween sky and earthYes, it’s been a good life lived.
Yes, there was much I could have done – could have said – could have realized…sooner….
If If If
If I hadn’t done the good I’d done –
- evoked a few smiles smiling back..
- waited for someone to chew their words til they tasted well enough to speak..
- satisfied with at least one good impulse (at a time) I somehow recognized and followed 🙂
But often (as I remembered).
It’s been an equilibrium of clumps of pigment flung and scraped across the canvas of my moments.
Sometimes setting coral wings to a horse of clouds.
Sometimes not clearly seen, only hinted. Outlined only by my imagination. Just like the If If’s in my life –
Painting – is a jet stream of directions chosen..
It’s an equilibrium…
It’s an art….
