Black wax

By October 4, 2010December 28th, 2016Creative writing, Emotional healing

Have you ever made a picture
Fervently pressing lines of colored crayon onto school paper
Smothering it all with black wax
And then
Breaking through the darkness to reveal
The beauty that

Was always there

    Yes! I used to do that–had forgotten all about it. This also reminds me of the autumn leaf–now we see revealed what was there all along, but simply hidden by the chlorophyll (sp?).
    I’ve enjoyed beginning to get to know you in all your multi-facetedness:)
