“High Desert Rest Prayer”

Watercolor, 12″ x 16″
Created using Adam Cornford’s poem (below) as inspiration

High Desert Rest Prayer
By Adam Cornford

(Arizona, February 2009)

Calm to the heart’s double drum in the ribcage kiva

Calm to the swishing willows of the lungs

Calm to the tongue poised and tense as a lizard in its crevice

Calm to the eyes that will hatch the birds of dream

Calm to the bones like arrows in the skin’s quiver

Calm to the brain that cliff-dwelling of ten thousand rooms

Calm to the restless half-curled spiders of the hands

Calm to the ears the secret burial chambers of music

Calm to the feet those doors hinging between earth and air

Calm to the gut that rippling underground river

Calm to the body under the snowy witnessing moon

Calm to the body under the beaded winter stars

Calm to the body resting on its journey to calm

Calm to the body

Calm to the body

Calm carry the body to the reedy pool of sleep

“Live Oak, Redux”

Acrylic on canvas, 26″ X 46″
Inspiration piece provided to Adam Cornford

Live Oak Redux
By Adam Cornford

Scarred oak spreads in silhouette
on gold-green reflected blur
from afternoon foliage
above drifts of its rusty leaves
Branches twisting tapering
to fine twig capillaries
cup October sunset’s brain
to feed it living darkness

Live Oak Redux

Scarred oak trunk in silhouette

on gold-green reflected blur

from afternoon foliage

above drifts of rusty leaves

Branches twisting tapering

to fine capillary twigs

cup October sunset’s brain

to feed it living darkness
