Man of Sorrows

Illumination
of the dark takes two:
Water and one root drinking.

me likey much. I think proportion is stronger, more reaching. The profile is awesome! Your verse, a la haiku redux (5/5/7)(unless that is another form I am ignorant of) is great too. illumination as food or sustenance.

That sculpture is AWE-some. I'm not sure if I am the water praying to be consumed or the root drinking mercy - either way, yearning for wholeness. Striking.

Beautifully scarred within haunting need. Yes, yearning for wholeness.

Thank you for sharing.

Prevail.

LOVE the root man! What is it about roots that is so visually pleasing to me. Amazing how you get roots, rocks, and wire to exude such emotion.

*Visually* tactile! I love looking at it, but I want to feel it...can I touch it when we come visit?

Goat said...

You always were the tactile one. Touch away!

OMG--literally. And I was all excited about crocheting again--hahaha! I don't think you know how "beyond" this is for most of us. Beautiful and heartwrenching!
