Transfiguration.

Post by poeticpiers reborn » Wed Jan 18, 2012 2:01 pm

Transfiguration?

The sunset was spectacular
Transforming the familiar
Sights which I am accustomed to
Into a very different view.
The slated roofs no longer grey
But changing with the interplay
Reflected colours from the sky
which blend and merge then multiply.
Creating a surreal beauty
Which hides the stark reality
That I am faced with every day.
Monotony in black and grey.
I watch until the colours fade.
Reluctantly I draw the shade.

that everything that was
had never come to be


it's a dangerous living this... life...

Did you think that the demon would possess us?

Beautiful. Had to break from my silence to post about it. :mrgreen:
"No one ultimately knows what they're saying anyway. Are we really making art? Art doesn't belong to us. It doesn't belong to people, it belongs to the universe. It comes FROM the universe. It comes THROUGH us. When I write something, I think I know what I'm saying, but I never pretend to know the full meaning of the words."

First class and very visual! What can I say? When reading it I was reminded of some Van Gogh paintings.
