Day Three Hundred and Forty Eight: 6th July 2013

crystals form on my heart
not the beautiful precious kind
but stark icy cold clumps
ever hardening as winter sets in
exploiting an autumn of stifled emotion.

when will the warming spring arrive
and thaw the frozen rivers of despair?

  1. This is so beautiful! It looks more like a piece of fiber art than handmade paper, but then again, can paper be fiber? And the pastel just adds to the mystery. Do you display your pieces from this ‘Drawing & poem a day’ in your studio? Or do you have them all in book(s) together? Would be great to see a bunch of these together shown somewhere (Like a mini-exhibit of this past year of work.) Very lovely, Dawn!
