Inspired by “Be Somewhere” by David Habben

Like Chinese ink paintings each stroke of the brush
Is an illusion of chance
But a reality of purpose.
Each composition is far too fluid and graceful
To label as merely “abstract”
For each piece like a surreal landscape-
Some gentle, pastoral, and quiet,
Some wild, mountainous, and full of adventure.
Still on the page and yet moving- breathing.
The bold black ink glides across the stark white;
The unpainted space as telling as the painted.
The beauty of motion captured in the lively stillness of ink-
Inviting you to dance to a wordless song-
The rhythm fast and energetic then slow and contemplative.
The swirling echoes of a hand through air
Or a graceful leg arching through space- mimicking the sound.
The drawings, the landscapes, the music, the body, the space-
Most importantly, the space in-between,
Is always rolling, flowing, moving-
Always in motion.
