Recently I co-blogged with Bill on his Master Oil Painting site. I thought I might share the results of our partnership here as well. The above painting is one Bill just finished a couple of weeks ago- and it has quickly made it’s way to my list of favorites. It brought some interesting empathetic feelings to the surface – an artist friend of Bill’s had just lost her husband after a battle with cancer, and it inspired me to write, “Within Reach”.
Sometimes the memories
Are wrapped in a mist.
Little points of color- sound- scent make it through.
Enough to tease the edges,
But not enough to fill it all in.
Where was that?
How old were we?
Who was with us?
Just a vague sense of joy and contentment
We had each other.
No camera phone around to record our bliss.
We somehow managed to make a memory anyway.
But I would like something more than a
Foggy recollection –
An idea that I have forgotten the perfect moment haunts me.
The gaps will fill in my sleep, I’ll dream it into being, and have you by my side again – for a bit anyway.
