Nature has always worked mysteriously and wondrously — in a structured yet organic manner. The imaginative painted picture of nature in our heads is presumed, but the spark when experiencing nature bodily will always be ethereal.

This is an introspection — an open dialogue to ruminate.

Come Full Circle
9 x 12 inch

If only Gaia can hear me,
the winds can embrace me,
and the clouds can shelter me.
A cycle it goes,
at an uncatchable pace.
Come full circle, 
the seed will then begin to flourish.

Sustentation

Influences Of The Sun
9 x 12 inch

Growth, comes from the light,
and the darkness beneath.
Light, as paradoxical it may seem,
shoulders the scale driven by the intensity.
Darkness, the obscure luminosity, 
bridging towards growth.

Time, Subsides

Towards Perpetuity
9 x 12 inch

In the space of eternity
At the break of dawn
Rings of gentle touches caress the pool of
Memories, held up by the twisted branches
And at its end
Everything that once held a place
Joins the flow toward perpetuity

A Conversation
297 x 420 mm

Through the arch of serenity 
Lays a weary warrior. 
Loosely clinging onto a string 
Performing to an audience of none. 
Like a war of flowers and weeds 
Concocted by a person of invisibility, 
And savored by an entity.

Alleviate
297 x 420 mm

Victors seize the flames. 
The flickering sparks that tail the fallen. 
Ashes serve as the only remnants of the past. 
Disremembered and rewritten, 
Throughout the lengths of our existence. 
Memory turns into a fable 
Till we dug into the earth, 
And uncover what was buried and lost.

Arid Land Towards Shore
210 x 297 mm

It was stale, 
But calming. 
It was warm, 
But comforting. 
Stretching across vast lands 
I lay my feet 
And put me to rest.

17
Below The Hollow Rise
210 x 297 mm

An unknown territory.
This unfamiliar place.
Heightened my senses,
And tingled my nerves.
It was an awful unsettling feeling.
An unscratchable itch.
I trudged with precarious steps.
A part of me hopes for the worst,
To be over and done.
Putting an ending to this story,
Someone once told me that
It is okay to surrender.
To let go.
To feel what is beneath.
Slouch your body,
Arch your back,
And tumble onto the earth.
No longer I am here
Nor there.

20
Hill and Mirage
210 x 297 mm

Blinked once.
All were meticulously polished
With leftover residual haze.
A clear sensation is replaced with distortion,
Grasping the line with difficulty
For what it seems close gets further
To the edge of the plains.
Which was real?

21
Iceberg

22
Looking Up From The Abyss
210 x 297 mm

Hanging by a thread, 
She said it’s okay to let go. 
The abyss below may seem dark and narrow. 
Light after all 
Is a seed of darkness. 
And soon, 
All creatures will once again gather to celebrate.

Meandering River Through Misty Hill

Mountain Slope

25
Overlooking Waterfall
210 x 297 mm

Words cascading with no regards
To what you have promised.
A convenient lie for a transient life
Like a mayfly, fleeting it may seem.

Gentle strokes, rhythmic ripples.
Liberated by the precipitous drop
And with the last crash,
Everything disperses.

210 x 297 mm
29
Rocks Crossing River
210 x 297 mm

I wonder if it’s okay
For me to be reminded
All the good times we once had.
Arbitrary fun,
Laughing to nonsense,
Chasing tails with no care for the world.
We grew apart
And I think I know why.
I wish I had an explanation
To finally cross this rocky path,
But I have none.

Uneven Ascent
210 x 297 mm

The pavement of stones
Uneven and raw
Cold to the touch yet
Keeps your blood warm.  

A spurt of fiery red,
Anger ruminating.
For this long perilous walk
Is ever so tiring.

I stood firmly into the soil
In front of a trail of footprints.
Waiting for the wind
To erase them all away.

34
View From Precipice
210 x 297 mm

Who am I to judge. 
Is there a rulebook? 
How do we weigh 
The scale between you and me.
To watch from above 
On the precipice of what we have built.
Not to look down but beyond
And absorb.

35
Whispering Woodland
210 x 297 mm

Whispers caressing my ear. 
Gentle strokes of glimmer. 
And the stillness of silence
That came afterward is like
Hope and fear moving in tandem.

36
Yellow Field and Distant Mountain
210 x 297 mm

Wildflowers aplenty, 
Drowned in Sun’s touch. 
Glimmering in its own right 
Like fireflies dancing in the night skies. 
What matters most 
Are the paths that formed 
To follow without rue.
