A poem by Sappho:

Without warning/ As a whirlwind swoops on an oak/ Love shakes my heart.

Original is 13 x 19 inches, done in colored pencil. This piece grew out of an idea I had during a workshop on "Writing as Drawing," with Thomas Ingmire. Think of it as an abstract design that also happens to be readable if you put some effort into it.
