A passion for balance

  • TreeFeller


    “Darkness always had its part to play. Without it, how would we know when we walked in the light? It’s only when its ambitions become too grandiose that it must be opposed, disciplined, sometimes—if necessary—brought down for a time. Then it will rise again, as it must.” – Clive Barker


    I have a passion for Darkness

    I embrace it

    But one cannot appreciate darkness

    Without light

    For what is Darkness?

    If not the absence of light

    And a passion for darkness

    Requires a passion for light.


    Like a man dancing up the tree

    Or unbalanced

    Like the tree itself

    Leaningclose to the house


    Blocking out the light

    Now gone

    To release the sun

    And provide wood

    For the fire

    That brings warmth

    and light.

    Shadows that dance

    Bringing the darkness to life






    “Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.” – Anne Frank


    NB. I swear the face in the fire is un-photoshopped. Perhaps a wood sprite giving us his blessing. Or a dark spirit born from the wood’s sacrifice.
