Blackout Poetry (part 2)

December Sky
A wind traveling about in a cool 
December sky
swirled into nothingness.
It gave way to a story
deep in her heart.

They are called Renaissance Tiles and are a beautiful antique color.
On this one I used black Mircon Pen, Zig Memory System pen (pure brown),
graphite shading and white Gel Pen highlights.

watercolor paper on card stock, watercolors, blown ink,
pen, graphite and collage images.

Here are my thoughts that inspired this piece.

Lost
Susan Rink Olsen

How is it possible that after 57 years of life I feel 5 again?...and lost.  
Alone in a crowd of strangers....with no sign of mom.
My eyes dart from face to face looking for that familiar one.
My legs carry me in circles looking for someone to help 
And my hand reaches for hers...only it’s not there.
How is it possible that after 57 years of life I feel scared, lost and alone?
My mind tells me that she’s in a better place, 
and as a Christian I know 
we will see each other again.
But grief has cast it’s shadow.
And I am 5 again....and lost.
