…a special poem!


…by Pádraig O Tuama

… my very good chum Pad wrote this delightful poem which he read at my last art show earlier in the year.  Late…I know..but thanks for these lovely lines…

She shares,
presence,
sight, vision,
memories,
small and ordinary
trails of humanity,
tracing little paths down
to the sea
where we were dreamed
and
where we will dream ourselves

into a future sunset
sacramental,
simple,
sacred,
full of old and precious people
spring-alive with childhood’s piercing truth.

She shares touch
and knife’s deft scraping
on palate
paper
canvas
story
soul.

She shares life
and all its little meanings
capturing
some
living
in these windows, framing sight.
