Walk and let love bloom ...In two peaceful hearts There inside is much room Where a feeling once starts A bouquet of balloons To faraway mountain tops In spring fresh afternoons Where a brainwave never stops
Stop and listen to a heart As it boom booms away It’s where all love will start Making colors out of gray And the wishful roads along In a heart that wonders still With a beat to beat mood song That every love shall fulfill
Walk and let the bridge find Every aspect of our explore Leave your worries behind Drift your mind to lover’s shore Like the birds that wing free To their waiting new spring Same to you it then must be If your feelings of love do sing
Days are going nowhere, Immortal at last; Stillness is here and there, Memories of past. Years like unknown streets, All going to by and by; Remembered bittersweets, Only a faraway cry.
The simmering fragile wind, Crumpling nothingness; Blandly from future rescind, The fruits and flowerless. Receptive to breath and sleep, All is in steep descend; The shining things into the deep, Till its very own end.
Days that mask in dark faces, Flowers with mouth of new; Shadows passing moods abases, And hiding realities construe. Days are going nowhere, Immortal at last; Is there anybody aware, The hour has glassed.

A photographer in search of inspiration...
I recently took this photo in Braives, near Hannut in Belgium. I also made the rough sketch. I only drew things that came to my mind when I started this specific project... Sort of an improvisation. The letters placed randomly form the word "PENCIL". There is "Dust" written on the flag, because photographers always complain about dust in their lens and because earth is made of stardust...
A superhero is trying to get out of the camera, searching for new ideas, while a smurf is having fun on a horse... A plane, a horse, a tricycle, butterflies, a bar code, a guitar and many other objects are getting out of the camera.
This also gave me the idea of a new video series that I might be doing and posting in the future... Thanks for your visit. The person on the left is Sebastian, a good friend of mine. The pic is dedicated to him. If you wish, you can view some details of this picture HERE
The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, provided by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
Day is coming clear as light With its wings of inside fire Like the morning onward bright In its accomplishing desire Hours drop in together close With runs and roams of drift Creation beautiful as the rose In the mind to go and uplift
Summer sunshine flower Where little dreams go by Through the endless hour From the deep and blue sky
Tranquil wingspan ways Motions on a weaving stream Flickering mirror plays With light that timeless seem
Every look in dissolved freedom Catching moment of dark way Giving silhouette ad-infinitum When its fire lights the day Echo’s flutter in distance yield Every growth in roots clear Open heart in artistic field Now the marvels have opened here
Summer morning shower Through the day to night Bringing soothing dower For the new day and light
Silence flowing yellow glow For just the two of us In its timeless motion slow Of light that comes across
That is ageless on wonder asking Rising above the earth’s hill Every instants of creation tasking That you dream must now fulfill Thru the seconds of their beat Going higher then all before On like smoke to realities treat And opening up again a new door
I've made here a slightly more detailed sketch for this surreal composition on paper. The guy on the right is shown upside down, the head inside the pavement... The smaller tramway called "Gravity" in the upper right corner is overturned (see a detail/close-up here, showing the small tramway the right way). 12 balls seem to be in weightless conditions. The infinity symbol appears in the distant vanishing point. I took the photo near the Palace of Justice in the centre of Brussels, Belgium. The second title of this image is "This is Not Gravity".
I go my road of fate Stronghold of my day Its cry of timeless debate On to the side way To enter on to the dark Once flowers were in shine A glow like eyes spark A shimmer of soul‘s define
Now here is drop of night In carnations of mystery Dark wings in deep flight Ever so wandering free Taking eyes to somewhere Where silences are black A song of nocturnal somber Never to return back
O tongue of deepest tongue Inside this closing abyss Each night where we long And enter the garnet bliss Fountains of evening veins I cross you mask of bleed To twilight’s coming reins In all your shadows mislead
Never stick your finger In the electric socket Or forget the change inside your pocket Never put your head On the trolley tracks These are the facts It's dangerous to assume You will survive the zoom Of the trolley car To crush you Are you super man I'm sure you can An alibi is handy When you are a puffed up dandy With your head in the tracks And your mind in the cloud For crying out loud Get out of the road You silly toad Because the train is coming Are you in your right mind Is this your trolley Pull your head out of the tracks It's right on time Your trip to Pencil land Is one of a kind...
I took this picture under a church in Oia, Greece, I also made the rough drawing on paper. I used to play chess every day some time ago... The Queen is the most powerful piece in the game, being able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or even diagonally. I intended to draw a skull ring, I finally opted for a hypnotic knot ring... Thank you all for your appreciated feedbacks

Pawn, Knight, Bishop, Queen And King 's mighty mean Think once, then twice Playing chess is not so nice A game of cunning and of mind Checkmate the King! And win the game Outfox the hand From land unknown And you shall be Crowned Chess Queen Yes, you alone! Be better, smarter, quicker Out think, outsmart, outwit Win, defeat, lose, defy Make that hand shake and wonder why It's fun you say So come back again and let's have a play Good luck! Said the hand to the mind Of might If you have half a brain You'll agree, I'm right!
I want to dream Through day and night Where the entire world seem In the dreamy light And stars go their way In a dream come true Where light is at play Always to renew I want to find my destiny Be guided in its hope Where all’s for you and me By no means to elope In every way possible Where realty doesn’t count Always to dreams accessible Hard times shall surmount
I want to be a child To find a wistful ray Not be in times beguiled Where dreams all go away Where hope is impossible To make active or try Fantasies are accomplishable Where make believe lie I want to have a vision In every colors too With nothing of precision In what to make and do Just glide in my sleep To find my own trance When dream my eyes keep In nocturnal instance
I want to dream In flights of mind's eye Rise thru the airstream As distant as blue-sky In every hope and call Where no one has been And rainbows are for all In castle in the sky seen I want to go and sing That comes from my heart And to the world bring In every trust and part All that is for a child In innocence and clean Ever so kind and mild All early days have been
Draw me a dream Give me a pencil Paint stars in the sky Show me the way And maybe I'll stay Make the sky blue Or maybe pink Send some moonbeams And a cool space ship Add a few stars Don't forget your telescope For your trip I want to dream! Before I go Across the desert I shall wander Just make sure To wake me Before I miss My favorite dinner! I want to dream I want to fly I want to see What's out there Beyond my pillowcase Across the sky And maybe the universe But get me home Before my teddy bear starts to cry It's fun to dream And make believe It's just a game It's just a pencil So you can play If you believe If you see the world Just like a child.
