I see fire in this painting

Strength born from pain

I see resilience and perseverance


I see the resurgent power of creation

Power to remold fate

Rivers of color modulate

Churning with the resilience of imagination


I feel my own journey of recovery

Reflected in viscous paint

So much loss and betrayal

Littering my tortured way


I have had to learn acceptance

Practicing the power of surrender

Digging deep to unearth humility

Finding strength to recover


Vivid colors twist and turn

Capturing tumultuous emotions

Moving like wild seas

Describing the arc of love and loss

Conjuring prophetic devotion


There is infinite beauty in resilience

The beauty of growth

Through strife and heartbreak


There is magic in resilience

A karmic aquatic angel who liberates
