From the Pocket of a Dream


A world beyond the reality
opens up
every time I step inside
taking away the ugly emptiness
My saviour in time
A delightful sailing through the sea
of an imaginary land
A temptation for the eyes
An invite to join the travel
while the brush touches the canvas
so gently
revealing the lines
the eyes
the lips
behind the horizon of serenity
I forget all that is bad
I dwell in a self-invented world
created for the survival
My shield against this cold around
My world
protected by the own fantasy
An escape into dreams
The one and only comfort
My only happiness
unspoken but well-known
Beyond the reality
beyond all sorrows
Right here
on this canvas of love

    I like this Eclipse, like the idea of life as a blank canvas, waiting to be painted on.

    Beautiful write! Lovely description of the world of an artist, dreaming, exploring… hidden within the painting waiting to be expressed.

    You paint so well with word and ink and paint within and without the lines of life that make this reality a masterpiece of mirth and tear.
    Thank you Lord for creating her in your image and likeness; a true Kindred Spirit.

    wow…but WOW!
    “I dwell in a self-invented world
    created for the survival”
    such a wonderful world you paint – if only reality could be that way…
