Say you to me
A peerless poesy
So unfamiliar in its delicacy.
Sweet nectar nests on unseen ships
Your lips release their anchor
Casting timeless fleets, affected to unmoor,
Off the soft shores of euphoria.
Perfectly freighted vessels readily aimed
Your cargo crosses sultry spaces
Making love with every mile to guard
The untamed tides between us.
Amazed the waves that wish you by
Upon an airborne stream so sterling,
Spun, it seems, specifically
for treasured transfers such as these.
Unexpected scarlet blooms
The vivid weather seems to hear
Holy heart shutters shifting horizontal
To let your shipment in.
Rapture received, no route remains
That fever landed - an anarchical swell
Flooding highways, flushing byways
Every prior plan wiped clean
Look out upon the skyline now
The domain from you to me
After riding that horizon
Isn’t that where you want to be?
Not stationed at my gates
But ebbing to and fro
The wharfs of warmth and tenderness
And do you see what I know?
The work, the love, the origin
Perpetual return to absolutes
That dare expand the destination
Of a place called home.
Paintings by Giorgia Madiai Fuchs
Giorgia Madiai Fuchs
Giorgia is a painter from Livorno, Italy... This says nothing of her depth. She is the daughter of a painter... This evokes storytelling I am not prepared for (yet). I could speak of Giorgia's heart work and its impact on my work and my heart... I hope there will be time and space to say such things and it is surely my ambition. I will only say now that her hearts have inescapable truths to tell. Turn each one over, many times. Listen. The messages there are for you.
Giorgia's paintings can be experienced virtually on Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr. Her studios are in Barga, Italy and wherever she sets the stage with her canvas and color. For more information about Giorgia's work and live painting exhibits, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
