Bad Ass

Because,

I am fearless,

you call it careless.

I am going to stay

without your caress,

which would at this moment

only

serve to stop my

never ending march

to that some where

I am heading to.

 

Mi alma se esta abriendo,

mis sueños y mis palabras corriendo ,

como un rio descontrolado.

 

My voice is  sounding off like brass notes.

I am growing in stature,

sitting in the…

FRAMING ON A BUDGET Part 1

Framing fine art can enhance the overall appeal of a piece of artwork; unfortunately, if you don't frame your art wisely it can ultimately ruin the paintings appeal altogether.   We all want our art to look its best, so artists inexperienced in the art of framing usually begin by using a commercial framer. A commercial framer will give you a nice, professional looking frame for your art. They will also give you sticker shock when quoting the price. Depending on the size of the frame…

HAMADA

There is a cadence,

and

my senses are dancing

to  the delicious

 rhythm

he is playing,

with the swift movement

of the steel

hitting

steel.

From the flame, the smoke and the seed,

comes the harmony.  

His hands, heart and mind are working

 flavor onto the plate.

I can taste the dedication

hidden in the aroma,

savor the concentration

in his brow.

I have watched enough…

Dignified

Oh…

 he is dignified 

and I am soul searching

in his face.

Siempre estoy buscando

Alguna pista

En esa mirada,

Y cuando  de pronto la encuentro,

bajo mis ojos al instante.

I am rectified

and meekly write

what I cannot hope to comprehend.

 

 

 I tilt my head to one side and look again.

 

I will call it honor,

This elusive quality,

I catch a glimpse of…
