Yet, Here I am___.

Thomas and me.

What pains the soul, and brings it down from lofty heights?

It’s the death of his touch, his kiss upon my lips.

His being there no matter what! (A part of me has gone.)

One part of me wants to feel, another part of me is afraid to feel.

I must, I want to honor him still with how I feel about him!

I would fill a room, create a river, an ocean with my tears,

But this would not bring him back to me. I am alone.

Alone among all who love me. Silence heart! Silence Soul!

Without him I feel not whole___. Yet here I am.

Life was full, and lovely, He was compassionate and kind.

Life was warmed by his smile, his charm.

His love me! His love cradled me, as he did with his arms.

I cannot be as I was, it does not feel right, or perhaps safe to feel.

So intertwined, so laced together our heads and hearts.

One to be two, two to be one, so we said. So we felt,

We did not have to speak, just touch, just be present, just a glance.

Confident in each others love. Of one heart, one soul, electric!

Without him I feel not whole___. Yet here I am.

For my Thomas.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
