Narrow Ridge to Irrationality

« There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection. » Karl Jung

All we deny in ourselves, whatever we perceive as inferior or unacceptable become part of our shadow.

We then project onto others anything we bury within us…whatever qualities we deny in ourselves, we see in others.

This portrait honors all parts of the psyche, embrace the narrow ridge in between them and express the beauty of being whole.

GOLDEN SHADOW

Thoughts Undressed

I only had crackling embers
As remaining lights
A blurry vision of flying feathers
In my final fight

The whistling winds as allies
Blew layers of fears and distress
Clouds of deceits and lies
Claiming my thought undressed

I had to learn to find abondance
In what was out of sight
Where any attempt to find a sense
Transformed in a sigh

I had to learn to hear my own voice
Silenced by the roar of anger
In a tumult of judgements and noises
Who finally had cause to rejoice
