Something in the Wind

By RHawk

There's something in the wind that I can't see,

All that I know is this landscape in front of me.

An image is brought to life in my mind's eye,

What is this presence; will it pass me on by?

 

There's something in the wind that I can smell,

It can't be anything good, the best I can tell.

Life as we know it, is only what we perceive,

The earth spins around and our hair recedes.

 

There's something in the wind that I can feel,

It embraces my soul, causing my head to reel.

A cold darkness creeps over me from on high,

I hope it's a rain cloud or a large bird flying by.

 

There's something in the wind that I should see,

But all that I know is what I know existence to be.

The world is too big and my mind is too small,

I can only hope that the axe is not about to fall.

Ron (Hawk) Hawkins Bio

 

Ron Hawkins has been creating art since the age of three. Other artists comment on the eagles or American Flags that sometimes seem to appear in his designs. If you look closely you may see one in the background of a painting or even hanging around his neck.

 

Animals, especially endangered species, and his Native American Heritage are his inspirations. They are always drawn with respect and there is a special meaning behind their visual appearance. Ron adds this meaning to the poetry he writes to emphasize some of his paintings. He works mainly in watercolor, color pencil, pen & ink, and acrylic. Ron’s work has been commissioned by Disney, Microsoft and Daytona Beach Speedway for Sidewalk Chalk Art displays. In 2009 Hawk and three other artists each created 8’x10’ chalk drawings for Super Bowl XLIV. He demonstrates Chalk Art techniques at local school art festivals around Central Florida and is a published poet.

 

Hawk has been participating in Sidewalk Chalk Festivals around the state since 1995. He belongs to the Florida Chalk Artists Association and will be applying for his professional designation of Maestro (Master) in the near future.
