Darkness... by tiinateaspoon Darkness... by tiinateaspoon
1 of 2
Watching the world unwravel.

What do you see?



Lamb - Darkness

I couldn't see darkness until now
Only light!
(though sometimes the shadows flickered across my view)
Light!

But darkness, this cold emptiness,
Somehow passed me by
Like a charmed thing I sailed
Slipping through its fingers

Blessed until now
Blessed until now

Only now, only now, only now

And I'm beyond recognition
Gone to some small space in silent stillness
Yet something beats anew

Somewhere

I'm waiting to be reborn

Only this time, only this time, only this time
Born in darkness
None can dim my light
None. Can. Dim. My. Light.


Acrylic ink, ready-mix kids paint in squirty bottles.

Just thought I'd drop back by your gallery and see what was new, and I guess I must have missed this before. i see a river running through a forest in which it has just started to snow within the past few hours. The river turns into a waterfall which cascades into a deep, calm pond below. There is a man sitting on a stump, looking down into the pond, enjpying the brisk weather and the sound of the rushing water. Absolutely gorgeous work. It really made me sit and think, and I appreciate that. Cheers!

In the top right, the First People look with awe around their treetop perch and into the glade. The waterfall rumbles with containted fury, but the pond below absorbs and placates it's gavity-fed rage. Trees laden with good friut and shade-giving leaves crowd the pool, which sparkles with the gentle sunlight that falls through the canopy above. The People look at each other and agree with their simple language that this must be a sacred place. It is surely the house of God.

i see a japanese landscape. waterfall, little bridges ... the works.
now that i've seen the japanese landscape i cannot see it any other way :(
i'm trying to find things in it, but i can only see it within the context of the japanese landscape!

perhaps i can see little white people. in a japanese landscape... :crazy:

i quite enjoyed both of these, this one more so because the details are more pronounced.
less cryptic so to speak.
