illo friday: plain

i had an interview before
and results just came in..
the agony of waiting is almost
over.. on second thought.. a few more days
of nerve racking excitement shall consume me.
how can i endure more days? if i am
would it be true?
how could i know reality from not? how
could i be there but really be here?
could i be here but be there?
in dreaming of being ..
under your roof.. Flatlands around..
cows.. water.. rain..
and.. you...


"there but not here"
4" x 5" (orig.)
sketch on recycled paper
[color added thru picassa]

silly i just found this out:
Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. Yellow will advance from surrounding colors and instill optimism and energy as well as spark creative thoughts.

I like this one! Very loose and energetic. Has the feel of a rembrandt landscape sketch.
