folk lore

2020

Digital art & poem

Watercolour, paper, ink

I feel nature in my bones. 

I want to tug at my roots and draw from the ground just one tale of my ancestors' lives.

but my lap is empty.

I do not know where I come from.

 

it is a geographical fact that my people were robbed of our histories. all the lore we have preserved despite this

 is a gift.

 

the dead have no stories to tell me.

 

so I will write my own.

Pressed nettles, paper, ink

When all is woven and unspun

with skin grown thick, calloused and strong

will spring uncurl our beaten hands

or will we weave again?
