Genevieve Guadalupe – Horizon

Horizon       Poem by Kairul Ahsan

He and she are like

The distant horizon.

It appears as though,

The stooping blue sky

Meets and embraces

The stretching blue sea.


Their colors match,

As they seem to meet silently

Like passionate lovers.

Trying to discover together,

The meaning of life.


As one goes nearer,

The sky begins to move afar!

Love is at its best, when

The beloved is seen from a distance.

Cotton fabrics,hand dyed fabrics, poly cotton threads, poly batting, india ink. Machine sewn, machine quilted, hand painted.
