Sitting (Stacy Wills, 2015)
24" x 36" acrylic on canvas

Love came and emptied me of self,

every vein and every pore,

made into a container

to be filled by the Beloved.

Of me, only a name is left,

the rest is You my Friend,

my Beloved.

Abu-Said Abil Kheir,

Sufi poet (967-1049)


  1. Beautiful Stacy... Love the colors and fluidity, and that face of deep meditation is exquisite. The poem so lovely - to be filled with The Beloved as your painting depicts.

    Am so glad you are back on blog again! Have missed your Presence :) Was going to email you and here you are! As you can see I am blogging again. Just couldn't stop expressing! Doing what comes naturally :)

  2. Thank you, Christine! It's not for lack of creating...just a lack of time on the computer that my blog has been neglected, hope to remedy that. :)

  3. With this poem attached, now I know why I loved this picture the first time I saw it before it was even finished. What a wonderful, wonderful picture and poem. Thank you, Stacy!!!!

  4. You are so welcome! I love pairing word and image...for me it is like finding the perfect wine for a meal.
