Scarred existence
seeks a patience
born of peace

Cannot find the path
tainted ruts of blood
line a minefield.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Scarred existence
    convicted to be
    meant to be live
    nothing more
    than we

    Great image, thank You 🙂 With the colors You added it’s bipolar, real map of our, human, nature connected with the powers of Nature.

    1. I really liked that bit, too – “tainted ruts… like a minefield”. It gives the piece some bite, a sense of texture.
      Very nicely done.
      Just started following you on Twitter 😊
