Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Wednesday, June 07, 2006


What he paints is her skin
With oil soaked by the sun
He makes her in his creation
What represents beauty in the horizon
His pastel fingers caresses love in her eyes
Melancholic dreams in a field of orchards
Cheerful rays spill raw notes into her peach lantern
Fingers molding her into gold clay without any shades
The beautified goddess is preserved on a bathtub of grass
Bubbled with fragrant notes of peonies
Massaging his imagination with her angelic face
Touched and re-touched by her floral scent
He puts her on a pedestal
High up for all to praise
They will all see she is the sweet muse of his exhibition
She even glows in the dark
Come and reach for beauty
Before you kiss her goodnight

Thank you Ty. I've never heard of Evoca, I will check it out, it would be nice to share my poems verbally since I've done it before in front of an audience.

You join the earth, the sky, the painter, and the subject in magnificent harmony. I can't tell who is who, or what is what.
