Illo Friday: Free

Free Your Mind!

(detailed lines excluded from original)
Eros and Psyche

i await
thru the dying night
your eternal shadow
that looms within no light

settling to the ivory
of your tampered embrace
i live with the satisfaction
of not seeing
but being
but feeling..

thru warm breezes
that occupy the mind
silent steps
of invisibility
i torment
i decline

for time i cannot wait
and time have consumed
this concurrent faith
an eon of separation
and the distance
one could not forbear

is this our veto?
is this our fate?
a reparation through time
that no one can dictate?

and so i search for your touch
through the sleep of death
that Olympus had enough
they set you free
to bestow upon us
an awakening
celestially combined

with an endless beginning
that need not any word
just the presence,
just mere existence,




story behind the illo: pure coincidence. after tampering with one of my latest photos, i ended up seeing images beyond what was originally visible. edited thru picassa.

story behind Eros and Psyche: there are countless interpretations and versions of their story. and i applied mine with the vision of being in one of their shoes, dabbing some personal notes. for those who wanna read more, here's a summary other than wikipedia. Story included in The Golden Ass by Apuleius. Which reminded me to add this to my wishlist.

last note: oops.. decided this is better suited for the topic "Free" at It's a late entry at Strength anyway. Pls click image for better view.

Do you see what i see?

Art is made to disturb. Science reassures. There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain. - Georges Braque

I can't explain the platypus but they can be very disturbing and the ones with duck bills - like this one have poison in the spikes of their hind legs!

I find it kind of hard to my eyes all the background you have.

anyway, thanks for dropping the site. I see you have some really cool stuff here. And nice to see blogs that shares some of my passion. Im basically a dead poet. I don't scribble the way i used to be nowadays.

It seems that you like the Netherlands very much. Why? Maybe your heart is in there kept somewhere? Your Adonis perhaps?
Where in Phils are you?

anonymous.. lol.. nice that you can see that! eh ever seen the tiger? or kinda looked like a wild cat to me. well that's among what i see besides the skulls. tskk.. maybe its just in our heads.. };-}

rey villegas.. first, your name sounds familiar. hmm.. u from Batangas by any chance?

second, im working on a new background, and theme. it seems that in other computers and browsers escept for Mozilla, the images, sizes and fonts vary. slow servers especially suffer late appearance of the post body background. in the meantime, i placed a new bg for y'all.

and about The Netherlands.. hmm..*.*

j girl.. salamat! 8) busy din ako eh kya di makadaan sa mga blog mo. pero salamat sa pagdaan dito.
