About the artist

Let me take you out
into the night watch
where you meet your fears
head on in the lovely white moonlight.

Standing beneath a shimmering glaze.
An ocean of stars
the shadow of yourself

What is it that you wanted to ask?

What urgent call drew you from your bed?

What is it that cannot wait
for the morning sun to melt away
from your anxious heart?
