Illo Friday: Summer

The Dance of Innocence

the dance of innocence © Velvet

The palace of the Sun rose up in columns
As girls of the forest, nymphs dance around in glee
Free as the sun and moon that shine
Ungrasping the agony and hatred of mankind.

Little laughters paint the leaves with due
Their standstill cover the darkness with light.
A new bright morning rising with the beat
Of echos and melodies thru their thumping feet.

Wind blowing through the swift courses of the sky
Make mine your fancy and take this liberty.
Open your thoughts to the change of day
As radiance guide your spirit away.

The Story behind the poem: Experiencing now the transition of Summer to the rainy season in this part of the world, i recall how i welcomed the summer of this year which came around last March.

The Story behind the drawing: I decided to participate at
Illustration Friday. And their Theme for this week is Summer...

With this, Two things remained in my mind. First the Song "Driving in the Sun" by the Cranes. Second, Ovid's "Phaethon's Ride". I guess, combining them together i came up with my version of part of a Michealangelo painting. And i beg you dear readers not to compare. Now Velvet signs off as i download me the long-awaited program Corel Draw.

And because i dont have any other tool other than MS Paint, i dont even have a scanner, and i just borrow my cousin's digicam once in a blue moon, this is all that i could offer. Click for a Better View

See you next week...

Yes, the resizing takes away from it a bit. When I first saw it, it looked much better and very interesting. Why don't you put a link to the full sized pic?

Nice one. I like the freedom of the poem's scenario and I like the illustration. (The bearded guy reminds me of me - big drink and no smile!) Thank you
