Paintings... dedicated to Hema, my 'partner' for the last four decades. Thank you for this journey

Dad by Sidd - 2009

Such a wild journey Such a Wild Journey Slide rules and Poisson curved Late nights of yarns and dyes and endless weaves Then only etch of hard black lead on Fine white card: colourless was all Neil Diamond sang and Johnny Cash served Floyd’s animals and Simon’s leaves That young man wonders his head is still on With leaps from Bowreah’s cotton to Garware’s wall Well, it was fun digging into numbers that talk About money going for cheese and chalk Now with seven kings, palm islands flower And my icy dry rasps scour tiles and tower But I didn’t know then, my mind couldn’t see My eyes are open now, my heart easy I had no words, there was no sound Now language seems my firmest ground Now my love and pain I relate to well Each dawn I wake with more to say I don’t know where this account will close And it doesn’t matter, as long as I know There’s no shortage of flavours, no lack of smell No thought too small, no magic too fey I guess I’ll keep on following my nose My footprints tell me where to go Prodeep by Vickram Crishna
