the love of love…

It was the love of love,
the love that swallows up all else,
a grateful love,
a love of nature, of people,
of animals,
a love engendering
gentleness and goodness
that moved me
and that I saw in you.

excerpt from Asphodel, That Greeny Flower
– William Carlos Williams


Reminiscent of last year’s drawing practice, here is a digital drawing that was inspired by nature and by a poem from William Carlos Williams. I found this poem following¬†a reference from Allen Ginsberg’s Tears to William Carlos Williams’¬†Paterson to this poem which in turn references The Asphodel Meadow from Homer’s Odyssey.
