#SOL16: Love is a Story in Five Parts

from my art journal, 6.29.16 (gesso, acrylic paint, archival ink, found papers, digital remix)


I.

Once upon a time there was a man who loved his wife and son as he loved life and then he died.
Too soon.
Too early.
Too suddenly.


II.

The man suffered as did his wife, his son.
They suffered together
and apart.

Who are they now--this man, this wife, this son?
What happens to what we cannot name?


III.

This a story of the misplaced; a link in the communion of stories.


IV.

Once upon a time there was a man, a woman, and a boy.
They suffered together
and apart.

They suffered and they loved.


V.

The best stories have large holes.  Holes so big we wander in and out--getting lost in the best possible way.
We tell stories to say out loud what we did not know.
