Portrait of a Mystery / Unraveling (Sunday Scribblings)

30x42 cm - charcoal/paint

29x17 cm - marker on paper

As life craws up to itself
And trees shed their leaves
As flowers unfold
And planets orbit the skies

There is something that unites us all to be

Scary are the deeper realms of one’s mind
To immerse within the depths of the psyche
And try to understand the world being
To courageously let go
Of well-rooted fears
And confidently pronounce
Embedded in nature
“Life is”

Not as easy as it sounds

So true! What is fear, other than a manifestation of our own thoughts and consciousness? Often hard to go there. Harder still to admit your weaknesses. Very insightful!
