ART by Stahl

I am extremely grateful to all those who have invested in my development as an artist. The pieces on this page have found a permanent home of their own. 

on dusty fields

we played at this
as children do
with older things
too much time
thinking
are these those
better days ahead
too many nights
remembering
better days passed
two more tries
at creating stories
from broken dreams
one more game
for old times sake
on dusty fields
mistakes like you
will stay.

TENDER MERCIES

without promise

without pain

without protection

from your love

from your light

from your laugh

never finished

never final

never

shall I

abandon to

your tender mercies

Your love

Been Here Before

Caution!
Uneven road ahead.
Rockslide area just around the bend.
Road is slippery, even when dry.
Lane narrows.
Now entering a flash flood zone.
Ice warning, bridge ahead is out.
Traffic diverted, alternate route suggested.
Rough road, no passing lane.
What you can’t go around, you just gotta go through.
Slow traffic, keep to the right.
Yes, you’ve been here before.

Dreams a Reality (for my sister)

effort grows
exceeding expectations
doubling down on
rocking the boat
making waves
in small ponds
trying to be a sea
if you dream it
is it real

Mystified

The road ahead from where I’ve been,
spanning oceans of time,
traveling ever forward,
the clock turning back.
Stay the course or cross my path,
all directions head into the unknown.

Look in a mirror instead

Want the truth

Want the love

Want the passion

Want the joy

Want the laughter

search the world for the want

find only a need for more

look in a mirror instead

find beauty in the view

Life Affirming 

In protest for the rights of our
sisters,
aunties,
mothers,
cousins,
grandmothers,
girlfriends,
besties,
and queens
denied and revoked their independence

Resistance of Memory

a day felt like a minute suspended for a week and hour
months seemed never-ending
anxiety
depression
compulsion
agoraphobic tendencies
anger
on full tilt from wake to sleep
it's no secret
why the memory resists
an accurate retelling
