The Torn Portrait

There is a self the world sees.
But carefully tear away the layers
and see beneath the torn edges.
There are other landscapes.

It is like a great Jocari window —
each experience left its mark,
yet there still is a blank canvas
waiting for the artist’s medium.

Intensity depicted by choice of colour,
or the starkness of monochrome.
Every image with its own narrative
but all are the story of another me.
