Time of space

I see words that flow into my being

caught in the beauty of images before me

positive and negative

like magnets as a child, repel and attract

a thousand bits of fragmented metal

creating an image with an invisible force.

I find it all important in the big picture

as dreams take me into strange realms I’ve known,

places I feel I’ve been before

reliving moments perhaps from centuries gone

returning round to end back at the start,

with a strange and pleasant catch in my heart

I know that I am where I need to be,

everywhere and nowhere

depending on the moods of the sun and sky

feeling alive in the spaces

connected to the dots

picture formed complete

frame to make it art

or shred into pieces to blow on the wild wind

it’s always free no matter where,

the ashes of the stars fall upon me

and I am anointed with positivity.

Inspired by the following words: Negative space…I wondered why it couldn’t be positive space or both? I like positive…things to ponder in my mind….

“Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space occasionally is used to artistic effect as the “real” subject of an image.”

Fluid movement

To move across the silk
The sheen of ice
Water frozen
Effortless grasping
Cling to the path
Fluid movement.
Mind slides away
To the sky of coming day
Moisture laden
It falls peacefully
Puddles ripple
Into the hours.
Washing over the path
To walk step by step
Forward and through
To touch the day
With a calm mood
Like ocean waves before the storm,
Skies greet the life
Of a word now dreamt
Through darkest nights
Light speaks to the question
Answered in sleep
Cards layed bare
The things to see
Within the all
Of me.
