Was just a painting -
splashes of color
put to a wide
empty canvas -
not particularly
special
but what do I know?
with my tired eyes
and yet...
The dinosaur
was a child,
wobbling on
a mountaintop -

short legs
not meant
to climb
and yet...
attainment!
Looking out
over a valley
where a gloomy
ice age had begun
to creep, to devour...
All alone,
one of a kind,
crying out...
tears of a kind
in my mind
fell from
that cliff...
Give the reptile
a human voice
and there
you have Man.

We cry out
for many things-
for hope,
for home,
for life
and for love
to whom
or what
for whatever
our tired eyes
may covet.
A human voice!
maybe a prayer

to survive
an uningratiating
world...
Vision is blurring
in the cold -
alone on
that mountaintop...
alone...
forever alone.
A poem inspired by a painting that I saw at an art show so long ago. A first work by a new artist - the idea stuck in my mind.

I should hopefully have some new pieces up soon. I've had to make a lot of adjustments since I relocated. I'll have a journal entry explaining more about it.

It is yet the dragon worm snake. It winds herself through the entire life such as a subject. And head and tail exchange themselves as a birth and death. And short legs are at the skin of the snake. Memory of a primeval time of the soul after the evolution.
