Blossoms I did with coffee and ink.
This sketch was used on page 149 of my book – A Coffee Stained Heart.
It goes along with a bit of my infamous babble…
How strange it is that at any moment
without a bit of warning
a girl can cross your path and embed herself in your mind
until the end of your days.
How peculiar it seems
that we have no armor or safeguards against such a thing.
It doesn’t matter where you are in life or what you are doing.
You could be alone and contemplating what you want to do with your life
or you could be happily married with three children, a house surrounded
by a white picket fence and thriving business when it happens.
The only thing that is certain is that she will forever be a part of you and
there is nothing you can do about it.
Maybe fate will make her your friend or lover.
Maybe fate will give her to you as a wife.
Maybe she will be heartache and misery
until your last breath.
Even if she doesn’t become a physical part of your life she will be there
because no matter what you do she will always
be a thought somewhere
floating around in your mind
like a murmur of another possibility.
Yes… strange it is. Miraculous and fucked up all at once. Happily and sadly true depending on the outcome. Fate…
anyways, I also made this bit of artfully messed with coffee stained paper which resembles some pretty blossoms available as a card incase some of you wish to send or give a coffee stained card to someone with pretty blossoms.
You can get it as a card HERE via Zazzle.
