Oculum in Metam by evon ski

This is latin for
Eye on the Goal.

I hope to

be awake

be aware

be alive

to hear with my ears
and to hear with my eyes.

enjoy making direct work from natural materials in my prairie and wildlife sanctuary.
i am a very restless person and I work in many different ways with a variety of media.

One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.

    I spy with my little eyes
    a myriad of tiny lies
    that nip my heel
    that make me feel
    that the hall of mirrors
    is very real
    a kaleidoscope
    of looking out
    a mute response
    that makes me shout
    what i see what i hear
    makes me paint a fear
    dipping my colors
    in ducts of tear
    as you retract
    as i draw near
    In the gallery
    a portrait speaks
    through the cracks
    the truth it leaks
    Through my eyes
    a goal I seek
    to paint the modest
    and the meek
    awake aware alive
    Into this pool
    so honest dive
    there on canvas
    I stretch my frame
    look me straight
    in the eye
    Are you to Blame
    that cursed my prism
    of pure light
    and gave me nightmare
    every night.
