Poetry Thursday

watercolors, canon digital rebel xt

i had a friend over today. playing in my studio. releasing. a quiet peacefulness lingers here in her absence. i wrote this in my studio surrounded by the smell of her watercolors still fresh. i read it out loud and now i am inspired yet again. i so needed this.

we create
her painting
me stringing
music playing, interlaced
between our souls
she sighs
i glance up to watch her strokes
her acceptance of self
her letting go
colors smearing her thoughts
gentle breaths
i sigh
she follows my eyes
my energy into gems
the path down from solitary
to whole
we sit in silence
a sweet surrender

we paint
we string
we create...together

~ Boho

So so sweet...this sweet surrender.
I am glad you had this moment~this precious moment with Suzie. I can only imagine the encouragement you gave her...gently, tenderly...that special way you make people feel, when they have you all to themeselves. I could wish I was there too, but I do not.

No...Never because I would not enjoy the presence of the two of you...but because I know that, alone with you, means to be the most important person in the world!

That's what you do Den...make people feel important, special and unique.

What I would like...is to see the creation that Suzie was inspired to paint.

What a special day...a treat for you, a blessing for her.

I love you, miss you, miss...you

there's something so special about not so much creating together, but creating in tandem, don't you think? the room resonates with the love of muses that descend and approve...

I love this picture you paint. It took me back to days of sister creation... paints all over the table, yummy music and the "us" of two friends in creation... You describe this so perfectly... thank you.
