Good Morning Sunshine! Poem

My Thomas. We took our young friend Gina out to draw.

How it is now.

You came into my life, I let you in. You let me in! Willing, passionate love, warm embraces. Yours! Mine! No other shall claim these hearts. It is ever more and happiness, it is bliss! So, we claimed. And now? What is this? I am to mourn your loss, I grieve, tears come. There is no you to encompass me now. Nada. My heart is broken, so I made room for sorrow. I hold it together tenderly, with care and longing. This is not evermore, nor forever and a day!

What it is, is an overwhelming loss of you! My dearest love. It is such great sadness that runs so very deep; unhealing. Always there. It takes my breath away! Numbing me. To be here without you? I don’t want to think of that. The only way__is to cry, to grieve, to feel this___. My body is such a heavy weight out of the blue. This comes and goes. Then I check myself and feel ok. I do good! “I got this! Ya! Right! ___Broadsided, missing you. I am told “this” is how it will always be. That “it” softens. I hope that is true, that that is right! How else does one survive? Life goes on without you. Crying then becomes ok. The hope is in what others have done, they move on.

They seem ok. They still cry and grieve while being loved.

Loved again? Again___I can’t imagine this. But being alone____.

That hurts too much. I am grateful for the belief, that the heart is like a castle with many rooms, to hold love in. We said, “Until death we do part.” How stark those words seem.

Gina. A very special person.
A lovely river.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ 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
