Portrait of a Young Poet

I am thankful for the interesting people I meet as I travel down the road of life.

Someone like you,  Alex Gohde:    poet,  actor, musician,  college student, all-around creator.  I was glad you became my daughter’s friend, so that I could meet you too.

Your poetry inspires me, and takes me by surprise, not unlike the unique face you turn to the world.

What a beautiful facial structure, such gentle green eyes, and every feature so classically spaced!  Thank you Alex, for letting me share your poetry in word and form.  Thanks  Be Giving.

Broken Bottle and Styrofoam Cup

In ruins from our wreckless collision
Listless from crashing into you

But I bet you have a few honeydews
Packed away in your purse
Wish I could be your avocado,
But it seems for fruit I’ve turned the worse

Sour sort of wine
The product of pits and rhines

You’re lips will have no touch to my glass
In fact I’m sure you will never thirst again
And here in this cheap carton, I ferment
No desire have you to break bread or share a drink between
Who we once were, friends.

You, Ms. Steph…

Ms. StephYou have a beautiful face Ms. Steph.  I really like that you color your hair a similar color as your eyes!

If I were to create your portrait in clay, I would definitely emphasize your peek-a-boo haircut, and I would work hard with the final finish color to capture the rich tone of that hair and  your striking, almost auburn eyes.  The shape of your lips is a lovely feature that I would play up also.

Personality?  Well yes, a lot of it, thank you very much! Tough girl, brave girl, animal lover, musician, good cook, survivor, smart, capable, energetic, dedicated, spirited, a little bit of trouble, a whole lot of nice.  There would be a wealth of internal information to work with in creating a portrait of you!

It sure is fun to know you, Steph. Thanks for letting me share your face.
