Man  by Anthea  Slade


He rhymes with ‘she’ ‘free’ and ‘be’
He is silent and then he speaks
He excites and he provokes
He is energetic, he is assertive, he is driven
He is magnificent!
He is intellectually and emotionally alive
He is articulate and expressive
He is mysterious and he captivates
He sees – he believes
He is primal and earthy
He is erudite and aware
He is generous
He is pleasure
He is pain
He is virile and he is masculine
He is vulnerable and he is strong
He is wild
He is sensual and social
He blows my mind
He has charisma
He is a king and a knight
He cries
He creates beauty…he is beautiful
He loves without pause
He sees life from and through his own eyes
He is agile, adept and engaged
He is poetic…he is wise
He has a creative imagination
He is passionate…he is whole
He is colour…he is heartbeat…he is ocean
He is the sun – wind – rain
He questions
He challenges
He is spiritual
He heals
He is an alchemist
He is heart
He seeks and he finds
He is a feeling mind
He is kind
He is Man.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

    A feeling well captured. I like to think he is in another zone, maybe reflecting on what has gone by.

    I must say again Anthea that you have a huge talent when it comes to human face.
    His face is so expressive (but won’t go on details this time)! I also like the light falling on his face which reinforces that piercing look conveying his strong feelings and convictions.
