My life whispered far beyond imagination
I have never perused blades of grass
Dew drops rest on my thoughts
Reminding me of frozen tears
Paralysed dreams sprout whilst sitting on a dead tree
My mind swings from broken boughs
I am always wondering, pondering meaning
Until death brings completion
This is a #finishdapoem provided by poetixu on Instagram. The painting is one of those abstracts which emerges and takes my breath away - I started creating it a few days ago waiting for it to speak to me, then today, trying to paint away the pain, the painting completed itself and the words to emerge to accompany it and the poem followed.
Though the painting and poem might seem depressing they are actually about the way God lifts me up and supports me, to keep going despite my brokenness.
