How did you come about the idea of this painting, is it because you were emotional etc?
EpicMyst Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So... so much careful thought into it all. I'm simply overwhelmed. From the care put into which leaf catches light or not to the roots to the coral-like structures to the rushing, stretching waters.... It's a breathtaking masterpiece of hard work paying off.

Truly amazing, and truly appreciated.

Once I followed a song in the birth of a day …

A waterelle of placid ascent
A hidden dale of glow innocent
A whirleewary of self-reflection
A plaintive fairy in recollection …

Morning thrill they conveyed to me
As they ceased to soliloquize
An intruder I felt on melo-euphony
Emanating from waters of Rise

In my boyhood I had a flash
As precognitive as I knew
Of an image right here where the waters splash
And I spoke of it but to you …


And that day was of magic not heathen, nay …

A halohillock for close encounter
A mellow hello for heart of martyr
A treeyoning bower of lucid green
A front of beyond and a place unseen …

Lord, I strayed out of space and time
So forgive me, my liquefay
In observing you I am feeling a crime
I withdraw if you tell me "stay"

As I heard an encouragement
From the mosses and ferns around
I intuited glee in my own self-lament
And saluted the light-lit ground …


In what world or what universe find I myself?..

A mossilandom to house the weary
A yellow branding of lumineering
A falliwater to rising mood
A netherworld of high altitude …

I salute you, enlightened ground
I am greeting your subtle role
In which facet of worlds so surreal I surround
With my feeling your flowing dole?

Here of pain I distinguished waves
Of resisting it lisped the fall
In the world of Merone I am hearing the staves
In Meronia Mikhendole …


To the truth, to the spirit in every cell …

A song of wisdom in realms of folly
A repentition in poolipearly
A slave released and a soul renewed
A quintessence of verisimilitude …

And the staves, they are floating clear
Of the wisdom reverb the notes
I am happy to stand, as I do, anear
As the song to my hearing floats

The umbragéous cloven walls
Repercuss as the day wears on …
We are souls, we are souls, we are truly souls
Underneath our flesh and bone


Once I brought to recall of the innocent child …

A streameander by talking shadows
A smilowonder by purple chalice
Are flesh-incarnate the cliffs of chalk
A fresh-blown bloom on aquatic stalk …

From the cliffs to the fern above
From her glance to the gracious upturn thereof
Expedited, inhibited, quick again
Interactions of converse that flect and bend

A proposal from one I hear
To perfect the imperfect note …
We are here, we are here, we are truly here
Notwithstanding our future road


One that lived in the feeling of halcyon mild …

A placidary for relaxation
A sedentary granting sea-cession
An eye-endower for trepidant mind
An ivory tower for mistress of height …

In an eon away from now
— In a different flaming and waning of now —
I was sea and from here I furled
Bravely ceding to show her this world

In a halcyon overflow
Preconcession, recession I'm striving to show
And the echoes I'm catching, lo!
"Darinam, dariyay, darilow!"


And he grew up to be ever younger than we …

An anemonness of estimation
An anamnesis of aestivation
A frail fragility azureene
A story unfolded; a painted scene …

Lord, I know that I merit not
And gainsay Thee I never would
But I'm seeing Thy face in her brow and lock
As she modestly dons her hood …

From the coming of Higher Call
In Meronia Mikhendole
She withheldeth her will and wish
"Napoyee! Nadilah! Nadoleesh!"


Always trying to see the beyond of a lee …

A marbling-holder in garments creamy
Reflection-moulder in currents dreamy
A grottograftling flooded with light
A fortress hardy; a holiest fight …

Marble garments pearlescently cream
But not they my attention behold;
Sea-anemoné hair in a graceful slipstream
But I heed the unseen and untold …

From the rapids and unto the crowns
From the droplets and unto the biggest of boughs
Run the impulses subtle and deep
Vapours leap, mosses creep, waters weep


Once I started to breathe in the air-lacking times …

A gleedilantus in merry wetting
Adamas sanctus in tragic setting
On sands of sadness a gleeful glen
By ringing rilling a humid den …

Thronéd orange accretions arrect
They directions allot and affix
And, bewildered, I sing in a blissful affect
Lifting staves of modalities mixed:

"Plavitah! Praveeyah! Praveelah!"
In a message unto the beset crystallah
Filled with happiness, sadly I sing:
"Dariyim! Daritem! Dariseem!"


Amid brazen-faced insolence choking the signs …

An iriventure to lichen likened
A soul adventure to heal the frightened
A skyrascapie in emerald wreath
A softened stone-shelf hid underneath …

Every tussock then heeded my voice
And the trees and the ferns and the springs
And together they flected, refracting my choice
And their answer, it ceaselessly rings:

"Namporah! Nebolee! Neboley!
Our welcoming mistress, be blissful she may
We are bowing from thee to her feet!
Dareeyay! Dareeyay! Taliveet!"


Of the reckoning era becoming anigh …

A sanctuary of God-bound prayer
An estuary of Mikhen river
A longing devoid of esuriency
A loving torrent bound for the sea …

We were then by her levee received
They were standing between us to hail
And the limberes told her: "We were undeceived;
He has love of the future avail."

Thus conjoining, they farther repaired
Leaving us by the shelf and the river compared
Then the mistress most winsomely smiled:
Self-contained, unconstrained, unbeguiled


Of the time when the loveless would die …

In her hand she had greeting for me
And she heldeth it forth in a gesture discourse
Then she spake in the voice of The He
Not her own … not of hers, not of hers:

"I am sea, I am wind, I am earth
I am water, I'm fire and song
I am sunrise — a new era's birth
I am Love — where you all shall belong …"

Then she lowered her eyes to the stream
Taking seat in the bower anon
And she folded her hands in her lap by the gleam
Of her ambery-red coral throne …

"How the waters your grace do not mirror!
Where the visage I knew not a clearer?"

"My reflection is deeper than surface."
And she laughed as she touched the waters …
