Illo Friday: Metropolitan

Places To Go

where shall we go first?

lost among the shadows of crowded thoughts
how would i normalize my breathing
when all the beats are gone
when your silhouette have decided to sleep
when my crumpled dreams left me alone?

how will i travel
when i cant walk about
when i cant go beyond
and i cant see much further
where is your shadow?
please hover over me
as we dance above your waterfall...

note: i dunno if this will pass at illo friday tho.. but the places seen here are just significant for me. Please click pic for better view.

I love the way you blended the colors. Is that Mayon Volcano in the upper left? Teehee.. I have poor set of eyes.

I think the way you balanced the collage of different images with colors is great. I also really like the poem attached to it. I think this will definitely do more than "pass" at illo fridays.
