Poem: "Tranquility"

This poem came out of the September 2013 [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam. It was inspired by a sculpture by Choi Xoo Ang. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barretted. It belongs to the series Diminished Expectations.


She is not a beautiful woman
but her ideas are beautiful.

She wraps herself in them
as if in a silken veil
of purple and blue
and scarlet.

In her dreamy gaze
lie entire universes
waiting to become.
