A Lush Life

Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!

— Psalm 96:12

A smear and dab of yellow wash

begins my practice — no theme,

no subject, just memory of blooms

and whimsy with shape and color,

and I find a stillness and peace

as I fill my brush with hued water,

contemplating life, lush life

that I have seen, that I can see

now in my mind’s eye, whole

oceans and lovely meadows, 

far lonely mountains and thick 

forests, and the simple wild

flowers in a little garden — 

we hold the imagery of creation

inside us, such a profound gift,

to travel to any place we have been

through the simple act of remembering.

—C.L. Fisher, October 2021
