illo friday: sail

sailing with flower clouds
2.5" x 3.5"
crayons on paper

Legend of Woes

wandering sparks...
slow wind carried them away
thru drops and showers
the sun sadly lain

was it envy
of the lucid mirror
that it had cast away?
a drenched down
   slipping sledge;
calling unto the wind
as small waves reverberate
to traverse their malignant state

as they slide to a stagnant era
lost and forgotten
thru the journey of folded pages
covered by the crisp scent
of misplaced woes
and their gaunt desire --

     nothing but one
     nothing but sailing as one.

will they ever be together?
connected but with a string
    of unceasing dreams
woven between miles apart...

forever in the horizon
an imminent promise
a silver lining with countless knots
almost owning the starry sky
    almost reaching
      almost touching
    but remained covered
thriving with flourished clouds

and they whisper
a yearning -
carried by the floating sea
centuries apart may come
they continually ache --

    to be...

      nothing but one
      nothing but sailing as one.

note: this is a poem i wrote back in 2005, read the funny comments here. also, both poem and art inspired by the distance of the sea and Odilon Redon..

oh, and yeah, this is my first ATC..
