skimming the surface
dotting through time
skipping like pebbles
on lakes glass-ice rimed

dancing the ocean's
swelling and ebb
that ceaselessly churns
under sunlight's bright web

skimming in lockstep --
now lives intertwined:
my fate is your's
and your's linked with mine

the sea holds us near
in her depths glimmer ghosts
as we dance through her troughs
among watery hosts

skimming and dancing
the course does not veer
the world spins on past
year trailing year

I have a book with this piece in, called Fantasy Art Now. It was always my favourite in the whole book :)

I really like this one; it always reminds me of The Last Unicorn and of "Dancing Through Life" from Wicked. The line that comes to mind whenever I see this one on Shadowscapes is: "Dancing through life, skimming the surface."

I love unicorns, and this is a whole new style. I just think this is lovely.

Ah :) How delightful to find you here.
You've been an inspiration for years, in fact I even visited Shadowscapes a couple days ago to see what's new.

This piece is absolutely beautiful... your art gets better and better!
