Chameleon Soul


Mixed media sketch: pencil, pastel, charcoal and acrylics. 740mm W x 590mm H
Chameleon Soul was written with the theme ‘Metamorphosis’, for submission to the Literary Journal of the University of Texas. It speaks in symbols of the transformation between the seasons and personifies natural elements with words like ‘tears’, ‘roar’, ‘scars’. In deeper contemplation it speaks of inner turmoil experienced during mental changes under adverse circumstances.

‘Chameleon soul,
Afore we know
Tears will pour
Skies will roar

Afresh from soul
Seeds will sow
Bulbs will bloom
From coloured loom

Winds will die
To clear the sky
And once again,
Unwavering chain’
