Life Portrait

the canvas,

as thumb of critic
limits painting’s

smudging time’s once
pristine lens,

whittled pure the
crystals culled

blooming life in
breeze within

hush prayer for
birth of sight,

on knees,

graveside for
our rebirth.


into love, for freer growth-
and fetching death,
of course,

then reclaimed
to seed the

Grumpy Gorman

thanks for reading.
