function follows form

it was there on your masthead
that’s how i knew
to lay my bones aside
and use my heart
something about adrienne rich
and a swirl of color
the shape of the name you chose
it is what let me know
there was something there
maybe not something to hold
but something to carry with me

without a shape i can trace
i rely on the form
without knowing if it functions


meditative rose, oil on canvas 36 x 28 cms, alvador dali, 1958


  1. sorry for the delay, madison. it is ‘meditative rose’ by dali… ;)

  2. what was this created in, (watercolours, oil on canvas etc.) & what technique was used?

  3. not sure, i just used the image to go along with the piece.
