Illo Friday: Spotted

splash, dream, float

when you wake
you're still in a dream
you want to unwake
but you don't want to leave

splash, dream, float...

you come back
wanting to see more
wanting to get hold
and again and again

it doesnt stop
you can almost reach
you can almost feel
as it grabs you tight

you drown in heat
whatever you do
you float in desire
you won't ever let go

you got lost in
slow thundering space
you found perfection
wrapped in the freezing sun

and you taste it
and you lay on sand
you feel the waves come
a melting serene stance

splash, dream, float...

now you take oath
to never ever leave
and here you stayed.

A long day could be spent in this place, serene life, if only for a while, the words are a great place to be, if your able to abandon yourself to them.

What a gorgeous spot! The poem above reminds me of how I felt this morning...trying to wake up but wanting to keep dreaming. I still feel groggy...good thing I'm on vacation this week! I love the blues of this illustration. It reminds me of the first time I saw the Caribbean water...I had always dreamed about water that color, and there it was! I actually started to cry because it was beautiful!

19/4/06 8:50 PM  
Blogger atomicvelvetsigh whispered...

oh.. been feeling that lots of times too.. like i don't wanna wake up or stand up! lol ..Havent seen the Caribbean for real yet.. but i guess such a beauty will melt my heart too!

thanks for dropping by and for the nice comment 8)
