Having felt the need to keep up with trends, a new larger smart TV came into our home.
Inevitably it didn’t fit on top of our TV stand, so I improvised a board which had to be painted satin black.
I couldn’t resist trying a little graffiti and two words popped into my head.

These 4 pieces of sea weathered plastic were found on the Welsh coast many years ago.
They have weathered to look similar to seashells.
I have always wondered about how their origin in Crude Oil deposits which were laid down in ancient times by the skeletal remains of sea creatures, is just another cycle of life.

Outside I’m still
sometimes at sleep
or trying to be still
Never stopping stirring slipping
straining to be still
to be clear.
Knowing I’ll be free of it,
stirring inside trying to get out.
Be still in me.
