whispers in chalk








you may think me as cold as marble
smooth toned and chalk
but i have many secrets
held close inside me
 waiting years
for the right one
to whisper them too.

  1. Interesting how the words trickle down the left side of the picture.

  2. Interesting-Chalk made me stop and think! Soapstone because it would be easy to carve; you might then need chalk for pure 'white' coloring.

  7. Cool placement of words. Cool as marble. I too found this sad, as is the sculpture, sad and mysterious, with or without knobs.

  8. It's been a long time to wait, but if the right one comes along- the whisper will make it right!

  10. No words from a statue - a mould..one thinks lifeless - but thoughts of what she would say if able to speak. Poignant.
