Imprint of Experience, Yvonne Gillespie

Yvonne says “I’m no good with words”
yet she devours them
sweets rolling off her tongue
until the colours run
flow from her

more dawns than darkness
pink for joy, gold for hope
intricate chains of organic rope
linking ancient journeys
to modern truths

Where does all this come from Yvonne?

something you read
something you ate
nothing left on the page
nothing left on the plate

I see you have it both ways
all art is for always
more than a thousand words pictured
still more to be read
bled and (un)said
