In Memoriam

 

The Final Piece, The Swan Song, The Grande Finale;

of Stephen Beitler

"Rebirth"

'Rebirth', oil on canvas 36"X48", was originally painted during four sessions over four days of the first stay-at-home order in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, CA, March, 2020. The LA Dept. of Cultural Affairs arranged a grant for local artists to create work in response; entitled "Reimagine Public Art."

In gratitude; I share this offering to slow down and listen to these words;

I cannot paint live for you; I paint in stages...

I cannot sing with you; I sing in patterns...

I cannot speak to you; I voice my prose...

I cannot be in life with you; I give you; 'Rebirth'

 
A Poem of Secrets

Ruined
So Angry

Hidden pieces of poetry make up our lives 

 

The signposts we drop to find our way home. 

 

so simple, not simple? 

 

When we need

Want

Hope

Desire

Other than what is 

 

We cease to exist, and become a phantom of ourselves trying to breathe life into nothingness   

 

Each breath is a miracle, When we remember. 

 

When we forget; We serve, Practice , Garden. 

Care for the life and the world manifest 

 

When we remember; We are 

 

There is no thing beyond isness 

How could we put all of everything into words? 

Why do we try?

Breathing happens  

We are still here... how odd... how miraculous 

Ease in no preferences pulling purposefully toward one extreme... or the next. 

 

To begin, to end

Birth, Death

Life, Stagnation 

Love with no opposite 

 

What is it to stumble upon the unknowable truth of everything that cannot be circumferenced by the human mind... 

 

Funneled through, Down, Squished 

Into the tininess of words.  

Who would ever want a universe where no mystery resides? 

 

How dreadful life would be if we could possibly encompass impossibility with a thought. 

 

A word

A poem

A prayer 

 

A life

Affecting Loneliness
Only so much Life

Soaring

How Far?

Beep Here Now

Singing Crystals

Whistling with the Birds
