Cherry Blossom 06

(I really need a good camera :)

Blue flickering flame
Or the cosmos
Or looking into your eyes

Bubbling giddy delights
Like piano keys
With the reverberating blue hum

A beacon

Cherry Blossom: Sing to Sleep

(Listen to Brahms' "Ein deutsches Requiem" while viewing)

The intertwined, playful night
Calm and dreamy

The haze blend of twilight
while our eyes adjust to the darkness
Blurring, grainy auras

Sparking night
Falling into dreams
Cooling breeze on your warm skin

Single point of light keeps me here

Lunar flare
or looking up under water

Cherry Blossom 03

Looking up
Cotton candy clouds
And radiant morning light
Exhaling nimbus cloud
Inaudible sigh
Warmth through the core

A nurturing flame, not destructive
Flickering and fluttering
Like a butterfly

So beautiful and idyllic
Ready to burst at the seams
Luscious ink clouds of air
And thick with our chords

As a side note, this painting felt like it was just starting, I was slowly building up the colours, not thinking it was anywhere near being done and then like that >>snap<< it bloomed . . . and there it was. :) That's all we painters do: wave our brushes around and >>poof<< a painting appears lol.
