[a Karin Gustafson drawing]


a bawling mouth, they met

it was the very first time
she held a baby in her arms

here was a miracle
cradled in a smell of newness
suckling sweetly

A Glance at Narrative

Karin shared some of her art and asked us to choose one and write a narrative, I chose the image above and wrote a Cherita - Malay word for “story” or “tale”.

  10. What a perfect response to this evocative drawing! It is not so much that either one illustrates the other, as that – regardless of the fact that they can stand separately – together they make a whole beautiful work of art.
