It Connects

I think your visons are very clear
And panoramic...
In delivery!

I could never tell a visual artist how to hold a brush.
Or a pen
To bring this depthness to surface.
Not like you've done!
In the way you did it to overcome me
With amazement!

I can only enjoy the finished product!
That's the only position I want to take...
And enjoy
What I 'see' and can perceive,
And escape within
This creation that's read,
And felt without touching!

'Yet touching!
I'm 'touched'...
On several levels accessible.'

When I've been 'awed' by a master!
And 'You' are that 'master'...
That captures everything within me.
Something clicks
And I am snapped back
Into a side of me inside
I hadn't seen in so long!

And 'that' is what you do too!
Being able to do that...
Provides such masterful views!
Shared and understanding!

'To do it and suspend me,
In imaginations!
Can not be done...
By just anyone! '

How you do it?
The way you get it done to do...
Lifts my mind to remind me,
The Almighty has created a wonderful family...
To interpret His 'conceptions' of evolving possibilities!

What it IS that you do...
Comes from your heart,
And it connects!


Dedicated to:
Ms Ernestine Northover.

'Ernestine, your creativity is magnificently 'placed'!
It shows that you are clearly not in rehearsals!
You are a student of 'something' DIVINE that has found you
To find a way that you have discovered to help and aid
In our 'awakening' process. you're terrific! '

    Lawrence,
    Your tribute to Ernestine's work is excellent as one would expect of a master wordsmith.Ernestine's ability to paint pictures through words continues to thrill us all.
    Well said old man.
    Sid John.

    Hey, Lawrence, you've put me in the public eye - what an honour, and one I don't deserve. But bless you all the same. I do appreciate what you have said and it is a lovely tribute beautifully written and a joy to read. Many, many thanks for your support, and if I ever become 'famous' you can have my autograph. Ha! Ha! I shall start practising.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
