WIND SONGS

Wind songs whisper through summer sands brash promises of winter snow nights melting in memories of that which spring failed miserably to deliver. Howling, piercing pain tunnels through funnels of hardened flesh frozen by air–whistling a tune one prefers not to hear. A tune one cannot help but stutter upon as it stops in mid-air. […]

AN OCEAN OF WORDS

Hard words flowing from a soft pen, turning fondly into thoughts – as God, my God, guides with fluid snow that which will melt every heart. I want to continue, not ever having cared for endings – happy or otherwise. And I will do as I desire, whether imprisoned or free – it doesn’t matter. […]

THE MESSENGER AND THE MESSAGE

I am not just the messenger, but also the receiver of the message. So what God has to say through me to you is for me too. In that regard, I can interpret the message in terms of what it means to me personally. I cannot, however, interpret the message for you.  I would not […]

AN INTRODUCTION

AN INTRODUCTION In my early years, whether reading for enjoyment or for school, and I read a lot, I rarely read the introduction to a book or anything about the author. Neither did I like to see previews to a movie. I had no interest in the overview of the entire work, a summary or […]

MY ONLY GOAL

 MY ONLY GOAL I have only one goal in life. That goal is to free God. That’s it. I figure if I can free God, then the ripples, trickles and undulations created by that action / movement / force/ will free everything else. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

THERE ARE NO AMATEURS

The word artist becomes prejudicial when everyone thinks painter when they read it. All life and non-life is art. The being or the rock is created with the purpose of expressing its uniqueness through the totality of its existence. There are no amateurs to that end – only contributors. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

THAT’S YOU NOW!

You want to explore. I know you do.  It’s like being a kid again isn’t it? That feeling of going outside, into your environment on any given day as a kid, to explore the world beyond your house or apartment to see what lies beyond the boundaries your parents set for you? What a wonderful, […]

WHERE MY VOICE COMES FROM

When I write artistically, I write in many voices. Could me yours, somebody else’s or mine. The goal is to communicate the human animal’s and the non-human animal’s experience. When I use the word “I”, once again it could be you, somebody else or me speaking. In that sense I assume a conduit role to […]

ME, ARTIST

EVERYTHING I DO (write, cook, paint, and otherwise create), I DO FROM AN ARTIST’S PERSPECTIVE, LOOKING ALWAYS FOR THE ESSENCE, the core, the foundation, the truth behind the facts as they present themselves for interpretation and further expression. THE MOST I can give you is to understand your prejudice. THE LEAST I can give you […]

TOUGH – ROUGH

I’m tough. I’m not rough. There’s a difference. Know that difference going forward, if your goal is to change your community, your world, into a better place for everyone. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

MEEK

My mother wanted me meek. So, I was meek for her. But I’m not meek. It’s not my nature. I’m not a lion, where I’m going to eat you up. I’m not a lamb either. Maybe I’m just the animal I am. Can you accept that? I’m just the animal I am. ~ Sharon Lee […]

STRAW | CAMEL

I am the straw that made the camel stronger – by taking the bale of hay off her/his back. I am not the straw that breaks anybody. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

MY SECRET

I’ll share a secret with you about myself, that I’ve never communicated to anyone. Years ago while still very young I read somewhere, either in a newspaper or magazine or book, that if somebody could actually write the way their mind actually thinks they’d make a million dollars. I’ve been trying to make that million […]
