peel me away...





extrovert teacher
insignificant socialite

eclectic painter...
weaving
the invisible 
deep in the tapestry of
 poetry in motion

(coffee connoisseur
daily)

camera lens
feeling the screams and nuances of the world

weeping willow on some days
an oak on others

vintage car
struggling to shine
for new times to come

 paradox

I really love the contradiction between the oak and willow... we are indeed a lot inside.

Great choice for photo! I love the idea of describing self as tree. LOVE these lines:
weeping willow on some days
an oak on others

Intriguing to close on "paradox" I like the mention of tapestry...so true...lives can be like this...great metaphor, Gemma.

Aren't we all--or at least the most interesting of us, anyway. I love your weave of contrasts and of smooth and nobbly images. Not to mention the striking image--the heartwood that shines so palely when all else is tripped away.

Well-played, well-written. I love every line, especially how you tied it together at the end with "paradox".
