My heart is a sweet maui onion....
This piece was inspired by a poem written by my good friend Royce! This has been a week of noncommitment from me! I am going through some changes and my energy this past week and a half has gone down different streets, and my creativity has been in the background patiently waiting to be rediscovered!! As I peeled back the layers of my heart and discover some truths about myself, reconnected with dreams I have, and break old habits, this poem came back into my heart! And then there was the post by Cheryl B...who honored the artists who post here and what they have to say! My creative voice smiled, my creative voice cried as I exposed one more layer of my sweet maui onion!
It does not show up very well in this photo but the background for this little 4 by 4 is all matellic paint!! DELICIOUS!
Thank you Royce, Thank you Cheryl B...and many thanks to all who leave such wonderful heartfelt comments!

Peel back the fragile layers
And what do we choose to see
Beware and go with caution
For it’s a place you will forever “BE”
There’s no turning back
The essence unfolds…
Pungent and Powerful
Personal Truths may await you
Stark realizations unwittingly keep you bound
Ruthless disappointment may reign within
Hope and Desire
They MUST be found!
Transparent as dragonfly wings
Thick as crimson blood
What is revealed
May be quite clear
If all fears were but illusion
The inner critics banished for eternity
Self-sabotage would be non-existent
This freedom is Passion’s key
Without self-doubt or recrimination
Where could our imaginations flow
Possibilities are infinite
The sweet heart of our inner Universe
Always waits to tell us so…
