Astral Journey

The colorful palette of stars
and comets dancing in the sky,
the opal moon, the crimson Mars—
they seem so far away.

My path traverses endless space,
exhausting both my mind and soul.
There’s blood and teardrops on my face.
I would have ceased to care…

But countless questions urge me on:
Can I transcend the void and see
dimensions which exist beyond
this mortal universe?

Is death a lie? Do gods derive
their power from celestial light?
Do constellations feel alive?
Can time go in reverse?

The answers call to me. My road
will lead me through eternal night.
My earthly form might soon erode
and leave my spirit bare...

The magic of infinity,
the colorful palette of stars,
the wonders of divinity
are still too far away.



It's a collab! However, with a twist! The painting was done by me and the accompanying poem by the awesomely amazing NinthRaconteur! She has some fantastic written works that you can find on her Wordpress-page, so do check 'em out :sprint:
Also, be a kind person and go look at her version of the collab:

The two pieces (or should I rather say "one"? Because they definitely belong together) were created as part of the Awareness of the Arts: Into The Stars-contest. Great stuff already submitted, let's see how things turn out in the end :eager:

Also, I decided to go for wallies again! This time, free of charge but you can always drop off a few points on my Profile Page if you like. Kind of like Bandcamp's "name your price"-option ;)
Available sizes are:
:bulletblue: 1:1   -- 1920x1920
:bulletblue: 4:3   -- 2048x1536
:bulletblue: 16:9  -- 2560x1440
:bulletblue: 16:10 -- 2560x1600

As always, comments, favs, or even watches (both the dA-ones and the ones that tell you the time) are greatly appreciated! Please be so kind to fav if you download. Tiny click from you, big motivational boost for me :happybounce:
