In the end,

I knew not whether

life occurred

or

dissipated

amidst plumes of steam

rising,

collapsing,

re-forming light and dark

as

crystalline mists

dissolved all memory

of

horizons.

YES, YOUR PICTURES ARE THERAPEUTIC…”

This lithographic print is owned by fellow blogger and artist Meredith Deerheart (Indiana, USA) who wrote these beautiful verses (she also suggested the image title).  Meredith sent me also this precious comment:

The picture seems to speak about the mysteries of birth, death, and transformation. Many of your pieces seem to speak of these things. I meditated on these things while my leg held me down. I was quite injured for some time, but my mind held many things to ask you, and to share with you… so I wrote and still write. It is like your pictures tell many stories I know about, but cannot speak of directly. People understand poetry and verse… they see their own emotions reflected, and do not demand factual evidence to refute and mock. They see, they feel, they know reality in abstract representation. It made a good deal of sense to speak with your pictures. So yes, your pictures are therapeutic–they do not lie. They are very insightful.
