Poetry #1 - Bare Naked Lady

"Mermaid"
Original Art by Vanessa V. Kilmer © April 1995
pen and watercolor on watercolor paper

Bare Naked Lady

bitter
sweet
grainy liquid
over my tongue
coats my throat
stomach full
filled filling
feeling cocoa
satisfied

(an ode to Godiva™ hot chocolate)

update: Rabbit, rabbit!

  3. Tom: Thank you. I lose myself in drawing the way I lose myself in writing. Both are a form of meditation.

    Doug: Thanks. And bunny, bunny back at you.

  10. Love how you end with cocoa. I'm gonna go out on a limb here but I figure, hey...if you don't ask you don't find out. I'm lost with the rabbit? Oh I know why, it's the cold weather over here in Honolulu I suppose. Froze my brain :(

  11. Thom: There's a thing going around that you have to say "Rabbit, rabbit" on the first of each month for good luck. I don't really understand it and no one has an explanation but I figure we all can use a little more good luck.
