Phosphorescence

Before you, I wrote often in private. I was not concerned if nobody read my poems, only with the poems. My interests were tension, texture, emotional honesty. New words interested me for the effect they might have on those things. Funny, tension seems to alter with what we use to create it. They are not the motivation for the work. Only honesty, texture, tension. Words are a poet’s construction materials. The subject of an architect’s building is not the wood, brick, concrete, steel, or glass, but light in the space.

What terrifies me now is how you have become that light in the architect’s space.

  1. Pure grace and power. How is it that you always hit the mark? I suspect that it’s just your command of the language and means of capturing, so completely, the human experience. This work, Vera, is so noble, and one that I’ll be visiting frequently. So well done!!!

  3. Vera…..I both love and hate that this touches me so deeply. Same path. Literally felt the same way about my art. Truly cool evolution. My sister and I were just talking about this the other day (less eloquently and in the meaning I take from Your beautiful words!)…about learning to live in the joy of what’s now…what inspires and fills the heart/art….as opposed to living in absolute fear of the moment things shift as life always seems to do. The rug always yanked out…You put this all so amazingly…ack! I’m dubbing You Soul Reader Supreme! I’ll take care of the paperwork. 😄❤️💖🦋☀️! Hope You have a WONDERFUL weekend!

  4. So… just as I suspected. This work is as perfect as the first time I sat before its projection. Really well done… again.

    1. Thank you, Bill. I don’t know. Do you sometimes re-read some of your writings and feel that they could have been better? Still, other times I re-read others and think, gosh, how did I do that?

  5. I know what you mean. But here’s the difference…you should know that your work is perfect…yes.
