To God

If you have formed a circle to go into,
Go into it yourself, and see how you would do.

Paintings by Jeffrey Harris

"My ideal situation would probably be to paint them and to keep everything that I painted. If I had my way everything that I ever did would be sort of locked away."

The Turquoise Bird

In fairy tales death
always invites the blossoming of a flower or bird
the creation of a beautiful creature
who stays in the same place forever
and is disconcerting to the world
because it stays and does nothing but be what it is
and stare down surrounded by light
upon the darkness of what it used to be.

The turquoise bird stares into the grave.

The Boudoir

'I imposed black; it's still going strong today, 
for black wipes out everything else around.'

Still life with apple

A Divine Image

Cruelty has a human heart,
And Jealousy a human face;
Terror the human form divine,
And Secrecy the human dress.

The human dress is forged iron;
The human form, a fiery forge;
The human face, a furnace sealed;
The human heart, its hungry gorge.

William Blake
