In 2016 I started posting large multi-panel poems at the temple. More or less all of them are for my wife. She is my muse. Here she is bringing the first one out to hang:
She had to put the day-glo hearts here to cover the inappropriate things I drew on it. Because I’m that guy. And she’s a respectable girl.
This poem later got the name Flower and Thorn. It’s one of 5 poems included in this installation.
So why the poetry? It’s because it’s all part of the same journey. The gravity of water and the flow of these 5 pieces simply go together. This will be a temple in honor of a hard and beautiful life. Whether that’s hers, or mine, or yours, I won’t say. I hope this turns out right, and you will have the chance to decide for yourself.
