Within myself

Distant Seas, Oil on Canvas, 2010, Roslyn Ross.

Within myself the gathering
is always to be  seen,
of who I am and who you know,
and who I want to be.
And then there is the mother,
the wife and daughter too,
the sister and the lover,
the writer and the friend.
And yet within the crowding,
there is eternal I,
who gathers me unto itself;
creates eternal Soul.

Sea and Stone

Sea and Stone, Oil on Canvas, 2011, Roslyn Ross.

The sea in silent lick lays waste,
to stone's eternal self,
and in the drag and suck of wave,
drinks deep of rock's old soul.
