The Art of Derek Dohren

painting, writing, photography



memories forged from a chance encounter

timelines that touched, yet two faulted seams

did she not radiate a joyous fanfare about her?

trysts flung on the decks of summer verandas

timelines that bled, yet in silent screams

did she not radiate the dance of a thousand candles?

in the south of Spain on a whim and a prayer

timelines that passed, yet drank from dreams

did she not radiate love to banish your despair?
