I want to age like sea-glass
Un-broken Smoothed by ever changing tides
My shape transformed by each wave
I want to be like a sea-glass caressed gently by those who admire my well earned patina
caught by a wave and brought to a temporary natural resting place
I want to be appreciated for the changes I went through with time, that helped shape my beauty
I want to enjoy my hope-filled journey trusting that the ocean will whisper sweetly, rage with vigorous and continue to generously give
I want to one day rejoin the ever changing seascape with my butterfly daughter
I want to age like sea-glass glistening with life
Ride the Waves
Your blood our veins your strife our life - your toil gave us the air to breath in freedom from these Golden Triangled historic docs.
Sea man father in Law Mother in Law thank you for having made your way through
generations live on our families lives in gratitude to you.
Evil finds a way to rise apologise
Reformation appreciation acknowledgment are THE paving stones for healing
In prayer our kneeling with hope filled breathing that Blood filled tears are dried by the love of our community let unity be our guide to ride the waves of our future.
Fowokan's work inspired these poem's. I have performed them at some of his exhibitions. See also my portrait of him.
