I have always loved the Arts. I love to paint (Acrylics, Watercolour, Mixed Media), take photos and create poetry.

I am currently studying towards a second degree in Art History.


The Peace of Wild Things - Wendell Berry

When depair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my childrens' lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief.
I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light.
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Taken from Collected Poems (1957-1982) by Wendell Berry
North Point Press New York

Haiku poetry from Kobayashi Issa

Beautiful, seen through holes
Made in a paper screen:
The Milky Way.

I am wild, I will sing to the trees,
I will sing to the stars in the sky,
I love, I am loved, he is mine,
Now at last I can die!

I am sandaled with wind and with flame,
I have heart-fire and singing to give,
I can tread on the grass or the stars,
Now at last I can live!
