Lost in The Forest II, inspired by Pablo Neruda's poem Lost in The Forest, is a multi media layered work comprised of plaster, sand, cement crumbles, and engraved wording. Its first life was a painting inspired by Carmel by the Sea. It found its new life through my exploration for my memoirs series, before I even knew it would become Memoirs.

Lost in the forest, I broke off a dark twig
and lifted its whisper to my thirsty lips:
maybe it was the voice of the rain crying,
a cracked bell, or a torn heart.

Something from far off it seemed
deep and secret to me, hidden by the earth,
a shout muffled by huge autumns,
by the moist half-open darkness of the leaves.

Wakening from the dreaming forest there, the hazel-sprig
sang under my tongue, its drifting fragrance
climbed up through my conscious mind

as if suddenly the roots I had left behind
cried out to me, the land I had lost with my childhood—-
and I stopped, wounded by the wandering scent.
