Chalk under my finger nails,

a sacrament of powder

ground into my skin

leaving smudges

on everything I touch…

pressed onto paper,

colour blending with colour,

the drawing emerges,

takes on a life of its own,

as it seeps from my imagination,

and morphs into


quite different,

transforming me…

then others see it,

other things


and they tell me back a story

at once my own,

yet not my own…

it all began with chalk,

or did it?

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
