Dance The Night Away

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Dance the night away
...For a beautiful dreaming
Meet your longing in a day
Like a daybreak beaming
Romantic feelings inside
That in night you found
Thru your day will glide
Till your dreams come around

Dance the night to heart
Find shades you adore
It’s a fresh morning start
Like your own wishing star
All the moods in the hour
From a moon-lited night
Is your blooming flower
In your romantic flight

Dance the night and find
What dreams are made of
Leave your worries behind
On dream wings and its love
If you still are in doubt
In a nighttime like this
Look at clouds far about
In their magic and bliss

This reminds me of my country men's dream. To have a home within their own house, not an apartment, not a condominium, but a real house in a lot. The piece makes me wonder if it really is possible to dream of a dream house in our times. Is it viable for people in the lower middle class and below to dream of equality, freedom, and brotherhood? Houses like the one drawn make a community.

I like that the style used for the child's drawing IS childish. The soft shading of the child's arms and head covering is very well done and off-sets what is real and what is the child's dream. Surprisingly, the soft lead brings on a homelier work than most charcoal pieces.

Had to analyse this work for an AOS: Belonging. I found this an odd choice for the teachers to pick as, as you can see, it's been displayed on Deviantart. DA is generally seen as a very informal place. Nonetheless a good work. My having to analyse it generally degraded the amount of enjoyment I could derive from this piece.

That's a powerful message

Do you take the picture, draw the alternate reality and take a picture of that, and then put them together in Photoshop? Or do you make the drawing and then have people pose for it?
