First Reverence

we were before time was drawn into a line
became shadow across the ground 
became something to use as a measure of worth 
became something the good do not waste or squander

we were before image became cloaked in symbol
carved across the face of stone
became something more profound than imagination
became something to adhere to with adulation, without respect

we were before the word

the word, one small sound
the word written, an even tinier transient imprint
found amongst numerous other tracks
upon the banks of the river called life

we are forgotten

for most of our being has been shaped
by those who seek memory, spirit, voice
in the word
as they have written it
those who in the end do not know 
who they are


  1. Hi Judy!
    So beautiful feelings come out reading your poems...
    And whose is this amazing artwork!!!???

  2. Well Judy, I don't know what to say...
    Your aesthetic is amazing and there's depth on it.
    You deserve many congratulations, bravo!

  3. I'm in the middle of recordings for my new lp. I was wondering if you could write for me lyrics for one track...
    Also I'm moving to a new appartment and would like very much to decorate a section with a printed wallpaper of your artwork (159cm to 125cm) if that's ok with you of course.
