‘Make a Drawing’

Now make a drawing
Using whatever you have
Whatever you have at hand
Blackwattle Bay in grey light
Rose petals on the water

A blues nebula
Cloth splotched with riffy word jazz
Dragon boat, paddles and drum
To lean in and surrender
Lean in, allow it to move

You experience the link
Between fieldwork and belief
Landscape and interior
Do it with figures
Now do it with form instead

Squint to simplify
The bright stars in the night sky
A thumb and little finger
To identify a spark
More powerful than the sun

Ah, never have I loved life
Never have I loved life so!

Our Lady of Vladimir
Me not knowing what’s going
To happen next, happen next
Large yet intimate pieces
The past showing through

Ah, never have I loved life
Never have I loved life so!
