Arne's House by the Sea

Charcoal on paper 
36 x 48 cm

My neighbor Arne
is old and gnarly.
He's lived by the sea for 80 some years
He's seen high water and plenty of tears.
He knows of the wind from the east
that turns the sea into a wild beast.
He's wise and old
and he has foretold
to calm our fears
that all will be well for another 80 some years.
