The Dream Connoisseur

Gaze into my dream,
See beyond the blending colours,
To a place where Man and beast
Dwell side by side.

The longer you study,
Concealed images emerge,
Teased from the gentle strokes
Of the artist’s fine brush.

Seek the magical spirit
Of a maiden playing a harp,
Or perhaps lifting a flute to her lips,
Guarded from above by a watching stallion.

Flanked either side
By a hog and some aquatic creature,
Keeping the Dark One restrained
In the density of the leaves.

A ginger cat hovers by a doorway
Secreted in the Oak’s trunk,
Protecting the entrance
From unwanted visitors to this place.

Overhead, someone is looking
In the wrong direction to her plaintive melody,
Will the Bird of Sorrow
Turn his head towards his destiny.

The centre structure depicts calm and unity
If only as the images again merge,
Dark to light, a colour transition,
Filtered through the pastel hues.

  1. Great words for an amazing painting. Wow.

  2. Great use of the image and the title! Actually the image is a photograph I took and manipulated using a very nifty program my husband found online.

    I really really love the 2nd to last stanza!
