messenger of stone

We are brothers and sisters
of this molten core –
created, consumed,
regenerated and more.

It is a legacy of opposites
that form everything new,
creating a picture of tensions
captured for view.

The patterns are everywhere,
unavoidable you’ll see,
they are not a secret
except from you and me.

Open your eyes
but see with your heart
it has laid out its finery –
nature is art.

We too are nature,
a part of this whole,
opposites are great,
we are never in control!

No matter how you try
or how often you think,
it will twist and turn,
it will change in a blink.

Ride this force,
you will see something new,
it is energy in motion,
it is all part of you.

Whether poetry or painting, she works from a state of quiet receptivity allowing heart and hand to move of their own accord. Without preconceptions Michael trusts in the direction that inspiration provides. “I paint and write for the joy of discovering the endless forms that creative energy can assume - in me and on the paper in front of me.”michael bailey logo.
