A moment of drifting waves and splashing sky, with the colors of thing to come …
drifting on the endless sea
the timeless invocation
of thoughts colliding
like the waves upon the shore
and the distant
There are times when I have a visual dream. In the waking. A collage of kinetic images. And as painful as it may sometimes be, I can but only love … living my art; finding fuel for it in the most unlikely places …
a new day …
This piece is an exploration of the moment when waking from a dream. The dream persists, but so does the realities of life: Our personal journey. As they intrude. Crash. Collide. And take us for a ride along the highway of uncertainty. I think it is here, in this moment, that we can rise from our slumber with our greatest fear or with our greatest hope. As we face the day, with our portfolio of experiences, memories, and designs, we can, with internal intent and wisdom, begin our search for a better tomorrow.

A Tybee Beach remix…
Tybee Island is a small public beach located on the Atlantic Ocean near the Georgia/South Carolina border. It is just a few minutes away from historic Savannah GA.
A day on the beach, with sand and surf in hand.
A peaceful and beautiful place expressed in silence….
All things, and man as well, should be like nature, without measure. – Hans Jean Arp
Nature is often hidden, sometimes overcome, seldom extinguished. – Sir Francis Bacon
Nature has been mastering itself for some time now, and it is an honor to be able to capture its beauty. – Justin Beckett
Sometimes the next chapter is the same as the one before and the one before that….
Leaving behind the shore of dreams, I often wake to a life lost at sea….
A life misunderstood.
I sometimes wonder if I really know myself at all. I try to grasp, as I look back across the sea, the meaning of what has gone before. What remains on the distant shore…
The beauty of my indecisiveness. The machinations of my decisions.
Like the fear of being stranded on land as my dreams sail away. There they go I say. Another day and it all remains the same…
Not unlike the fleeing faces in the clouds above or the uneasy sinking in the waves below….
When we observe nature from a design perspective, we often see her in a different light….
to find young love
with green grass
and warm days
of far off lands
to discover one self
on barren summits
and snowy slopes
Just over the summit we can see the things we dream of….
With the wind behind us, we were heard speaking to one another….
it is here that you first knew
how I truly understood.
This has been a fantastic weekend. I am the featured artist at the dVerse poets pub. Many of the poets that participate and share their poems have given me a lot of positive response. And I certainly do appreciate it. It is motivating and inspirational. Late last night, it came to me that I should share some of my most popular posts. I have only been blogging for 13 months, and have explored a host of themes, concepts and ideas. Below you will find links to the 5 most popular posts so far. They were determined by the number of comments and likes by my readers. I have included thumbnails of each image in the posts. They are in the order of their popularity.
burning the bridges…
leaving the memories behind you
or following the yellow brick road
across that new bridge
the bridge of hope and beauty
and colors in transition….
I would like to thank Sheila for inviting me to be the featured artist for the poets at dversepoets. I thought I may write a short poem as well, reflecting my thoughts for the challenge.
Sometimes in the waking the mornings with you….
a morning glow
thoughts of you
with soft anticipation
a morning light
dreams of you
unrelenting rays of sunshine
turning the page
– on Love
in a different kind of day….
