Poetry: Dots On A Timeline

A thousand revolts stuck in history
know and unknown alike.
Blood spilt to avoid our own injury,
To keep our minds childlike.

I could be a sweet sparrow

seen an owl or thanked a horseshoe.

Instead I’ll wander through an endless wood,
in search of past Gods, beasts and men,
feel guilt in not accepting my freedom
only to realise I’m stuck in a corporate den.

                          Oh to be alone…

Haiku: Love Is Hate

                                   clean only on the inside.

Painting: How The World Goes Round

A Canvas job I did for my parents as a Christmas present.

It’s easy to forget that we are part of the nature we destroy, it’s easy to think we are separate from the rest of the animal kingdom.

Yet when you’re standing at the sinking sunset, the sunlight completely immersing you, Read more ›

A Lion’s share

A soft pastel sketch of half a lion’s face.  The vivid colour scheme was a delight to try and re-create. The pastels compliment the Read more ›

Roar sketch

An old black and white pencil sketch from a couple of years back. I remember being very proud.

A grizzly bear’s roar can reach up to 114 decibels; as loud as jet taking off. With that in mind, a roaring bear can make for a powerful image.
