Acrylic with collage of copies and writing.

Features are for poetry and for painting of Dangerous.

Dangerous is an acrylic painting.


It is that feeling in her eyes
As she moves towards revolution
Her poise, her presence
She holds herself defiant and courageous
A warrior of the heart.

Her heart exposed
Vulnerable like a delicate reed
Glistening and subtle, a pearl
But so easily turned raw.

She bends but not breaks
Missing the arrows of war
and marches forward towards
the rupture of change.

Through the wind and hail
A tornado of emotion
Her heart in flames
Her dance ignited by passion.

Her thinking heart
She has been told
Thinks too much
But she is aware, her eyes see
and her heart knows.

Instinct and passion
Softness and Strength
Intuition and Wisdom
a powerful marriage.

It takes a strong man to love her
One who can see her soul
for as strong as she is
She is just as soft
And she knows and he knows
In this she is dangerous.

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.
