A small square watercolour of a tiny bird sits on my desk. Despite its stillness, I am struck by how this image of a wren is enough to capture its spirit, especially as I am drawn to its movement and song.
As I see a painting I am made different. The longer I gaze, the greater my difference.
I think and feel my way to a new place as the wren becomes far more than paper and pigment.
Art is not my luxury, it is the air I breathe, my food, my drink, my anchor, word, and memory...
Look left from oak to right of beech,
Glance up to slumbered canopy,
A ball of rufous mottled feathers fills with crisp cold air,
You beauty of the frozen mist and frosted whitened wood,
Sing loud, sing long, sing spirit full with silken rare and rippled song.
Winter fall as sigh to spring till end of March,
The stretch of wing,
And then with warmth on day of sudden gift you come to be,
As strength of angel silk your tune as broad in reach as sky-lit moon,
Beloved of all the sounds that fly, that I have heard or light will see.
