Three poems written to the painting No 57, 58  and 59 by disabled artists Timothy Schraman, Dennis Goater and Vivienne Sharp sold during the  Creative Connections Exhibition 2008.

 

Racetrack

 

The static audience is a smudged yellow blur

as my Formula Ford whizzes past the stands, in blue.

 

Around the chicane the red Ferrari takes the inside

and I glide past, pedal to the metal with a grin.

 

You won’t catch me – I’m every colour of the rainbow!

Tho’ purple blobs try, they’ve got no space, in my race.

 

Coral Bay

 

Snorkeling with rainbows

just past the breaking surf,

I see the red rocky shores

of the North West Cape.

 

Shimmering white sands where

Coastal Daisies, starflowers

and Sturt Peas grope to grip

harsh hot terrain in fighting wind.

 

At Easter, a hundred yards off

the bay, coral triggers upside down

snowstorms to invite gentle giants

from the depths of Tantabiddi to feed

 

whilst in my imagination I squeeze

the fish colours through my fingers

to paint pictures and feel myself

swimming with whale sharks.

 

Passions

 

a wide smile

weighted hugs

Pavarotti with

new food only

hide this red

cloud thundering

over my heart
