Good Morning Sunshine! Broken Doll Poem

Broken Doll

As a broken doll, I am. Just laying there forgotten.

Alone, tangled, apart. Observing the world, unable to belong.

Morning to night, night to morning____as a broken doll.

Mindlessness keeps me here. Cold, without warmth of love.

What charity does life give when its like this? Silence____,

Makes my heart ache, to be alone and unloved. Broken,

with no tether to keep a hold.

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


  1. Thank you! When Thomas and I were at USM together he had made this and other charcoals for a book project I was writing for battered women. A collection of poems that expressed what they went through. The first poem which is being illusive at this time___ was hung for some time at USM with this image. Thomas was given an award for these, and a letter from the school. Tom took me an my china doll to this huge bolder field, spent a long time there taking many photos of the doll. When we went out with our camera it was a guarantee to being somewhere a while.
