Floral circle

This sketchbook page courtesy of my favourite tool/ the black pen was in response to a challenge I read about somewhere online- what can you do with a circle in the center of a page…where will this journey take you, what would your life in this microcosm look like…mine would apparently look floral…


Grand Simplicity

Grand Simplicity
by Michael Romani

There is a sense of wicked, needless perversity
In resolving global coral's afflicted adversity
Perhaps understanding this begins with curiosity
Learning the species quite thoroughly
Super structures build by simple organisms
That have become a report on the oceans in microcosm

Seeming simplicity as seen strictly from the outside
That view does not tell the story from the inside
Quietly sophisticated in the uniquely special way
No need for opposable thumbs to be more than okay
Thousands of polyps cooperate to form in a mega-one
This is just how it's been done since time first begun

Inside each is a micro-algae daylight food factory
Daylight feeding by photosynthesis that proves satisfactory
As this supra-animal grows, its skeleton is secreted
The polyps grow over it again as was always intended
The as the sun goes down, the polyps pop out 
With stingers at the ready for the passing morsels they flout

Coral is a foundation species in a thousand shapes
Proving the ocean nurseries in a myriad of seascapes
Always the grand simplicity behind the world's reefs
As sacred to the oceans as mankind's own oceanic beliefs
A simplicity so large that some can be seen from space
With only one wish, to co-exist with our silly human race

Outside and inside

Outside and inside

Everything what is outside
Is inside
But not everything what is inside
Is outside…

Small things make the connections
The little rituals of invocation
What is a morning with coffee?
Each wake up kiss is its own memory

Every step take with good intention
Move beyond the places of convention
A place of love molds the next generation
Voice by dreams of penetrating reverberation

It's a messy relationship, this dialog
Intergenerational, no longer run in analog
Developing an enhancement of voices
Striking out in new directions and choices

Well-being webbed in into the future
It's there we grow and nurture
One space at a time falls into place
With happiness for our humane race

Everything that is outside in space is also within us. Today man does not yet recognise the complete harmony which exists between the mysterious forces at work in himself, and the forces active outside in the macrocosm; indeed he probably regards that as a fantastic daydream. 20 more words


Grander than Emoji

Everyone is a microcosm-

while art can push our subconscious “buttons” to merely emote

language (if intelligent) can encourage us to go beyond the stroking of “self” and… 33 more words


On Making Love

Being in a committed relationship, it is my duty and responsibility to examine how I want this relationship to play out, what it consists of, what my values are within the relationship. 639 more words
