A Friend Like You:
I want to be a friend like you.
You told me that we met a long time ago
in a space both silent and cold.
There we drifted
side by side
as tiny crystals twirled down upon your ground.
With eyes of approval and a chuckle
you said to me,
“My child let’s be friends, crawl inside my warmth.”
One of my favorite projects of 2017 has been collaborating with poet and musician @eyesofapearl
I had the pleasure of translating her writing into illustrations.
Reflections about the sun and solitude.
Thank you for the sun,
warming my feet outside these four walls.
Thank you for solitude,
the world around me comes to life when not a thought sits in my mind.
Thank you legs and feet. The unsung heroes of the day.
They pace, they dance and spin like a prima ballerina from love’s kiss.
They stand for hours at a time with tender heels,
even as the day’s end feels
