Artist's Description

Poem and artwork were completed together


Walking with my girl

I see the scent of sawdust,
Moist with coloured inks.
I feel the fog and the trees
Singing in unison.
I taste the thunder of Heaven,
And paint the thoughts of flowers.
I hear the music of peppermint
And the melody of darkness.
I smell the sweet spray of contentment
And the voices of friendships.
But within all of these,
I sense the presence of God.


It was the 60’s, when everything was possible: colour was everywhere, music and the arts were being re-invented daily, and things always smelt good. Politics was rubbish, and the world was on edge – but the world was changed for ever by people who never realised it was impossible.

The artwork original is acrylic on paper, digitized and then “tided up” in Photoshop.
