These images
are in the midst of movement
mine, theirs, yours,
caught by my camera
blurred images of reality
(as we go screaming by)

Re-explored by
my imagination and memory
my inner eye and desires
my world of passion
my painters sketchbook
shimmering like heat waves


This book is about what we think
we do not see
the colors we forget are there
the little things that lie
in the corner of our eye
in the back of our minds
just within our reach


For whatever reason
we can no longer See
this secret silent world
lush with color and sensation
now awaiting
your discovery

I can teach you
to See it

I only need


About the Author

Kristina Ellis
kristinae western michigan

I was born
in Philadelphia
Quaker country
and raised on an island
in the Detroit river

My Life
has taken me to
Baltimore for my BFA,
New York City, Delaware, DC,
Maine, New Jersey,Chicago
and back again
to Michigan

here I remain
in the middle of the woods
i hold so dear
with cats
entwined around me.
i paint
i listen
i work
i wait


my world is peopled by images
always images
of everything, past present
emotions concepts
words ideas
sound and thought;
my inner world
is an eye.

yet Music;
rhythm and cadence;
dance and release;
follow me everywhere
my unbidden lover
my delight

these images
flow through me
mingling with
Myth and Soul
emotion, symbol
dreams and desires
the Self (much more)

into and out of
finding and looking
yearning and defiance
past and present
Standing Still

from the wellspring of God
by color, symbol and juxtaposition
I address my questions
and reassert my desire
to be One
