Literature
The Priceless Jewel
Pray for me,
I think I've lost my mind.
By fate or chance, or divine appointment,
my eyes found a jewel both priceless, refined.
Coloured subtle, indescribable, incomparable -
coloured an explosion of flavour in mind.
Hue of flower's delight, indescribable,
the radiance of stars, green seas' serene, clear,
yet in the spectrum irreproducible,
at once unique, and without peer.
A chance vision it was,
a glance, over too soon.
A long gaze passed in seconds,
and each day without, seeming a moon.
Too peculiar to grasp firmly in mind,
that colour unique, that sheen so bright.
Yet to witness again, brings clear recall;
that beauty meek, that subtle delight.
Mind's eye tries vainly to pain the portrait,
tries that beauty to recall, to behold.
But Memory fails to contain within,
that precious jewel, that fiery gold.
Too precious does that beauty be,
for re-visioning within so crude a mind.
Yet re-observed: heart delighted with details rekindled,
My soul, seeing beauty, is remind.
The jewel displ

Australia
Current Residence: Brisbane, Australia
Favourite genre of music: Alternative, Christian
Operating System: Windows XP
MP3 player of choice: Winamp (it really whips the Llama's ass)
Shell of choice: That'd be XP, wouldn' it?
Wallpaper of choice: Usually something of my own making
Skin of choice: "Winamp Modern"
Favourite cartoon character: Darkwing Duck
Personal Quote: Jeremiah 29: 11
Interests
  • Listening to: "With Everything" (Hillsong)
  • Reading: "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" (Joshua Harris
  • Playing: Freespace 2 OSP
Okay, I didn't submit much at all in 2007-2008 because I was busy engaging in full time Christian youth ministry in other cities.   But now I'm living at home again, finishing off my uni degree (after 27 months off!) and generally trying to discover what a 'normal' life is like again.

I've uploaded two new pictures this week, one of which was hot off the press... or digital easel... or whatever.   Hopefully I will find some more time in the near future to make some more art to go with it.

Art is often a vent for me, and helps me "see myself" as well, so I figure that doing more art will be healthy.

Hope you're going well,
-Paul
