Substrate & Medium

Arise // ascend:My love!In every living breath,Drawn freshOr maybe sketched,Etched;You are the substrate and medium,Palette from which to chooseA shade or hue,Not that any one could ever do,To render you. I amTwigs and branches hewn,A beach with leaves and stones upon which strewn,The calm after/before,The storm which rumbles,Stumbles, pours through,Tan and blue;Every flash and thunder crashA wonder born anew,For you.

I am re-recording and reposting this, as my dear friend Jasmine (https://www.instagram.com/mine_primel/) has been kind enough to create artwork for this piece (below) and I wanted to do it justice with a new recording.
