The Mother

1 Comment

Don’t Turn Your Back.
Some say don’t turn your back.
The earth,
The sea,
The mother of us all.
Our birthplace, our creator.
No, don’t turn your back
on the one that is all.
The father and the mother
the one that we kill—
Destroy in our haste.

We are lost— or mostly so if
time is not ours to have.

Forward must be forward
not to lose any longer.
Do not turn your back.
We can not turn our back.
The beginning was too precious.

The Wash

Author: William Bushell

I am an artist living in Victoria, BC Canada. I am primarily a painter and I dabble in photography. My subject matter is mainly abstract that is informed by landscape and the sea along with my experiences and observations. Aesthetic appreciation is the key. Art can be found all around you, from the inside of a flower to an accidental arrangement of stones and driftwood or shadows cast on a roadway.
