Phantasmagoric

Drop, Splash
Tilt in line
Mix with gravity
Perfect with time

Pick shape
Lay it down
Lift with care
Hope no brown

Be amazed
See beyond
Phantasmagoric
Mixing bond

Colours alive
Textures deep
Candle perfect
Watches over sleep

Yes... seeing beyond is the cornerstone of creativity.

I like very much


"Candle perfect
Watches over sleep"

(I think I would like one of those!)

Love that you played with the color change part of the meaning, Emma! :)

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Oooh, cool - the words and image go so well together. Beautiful colors.

Loved the swingalong rhythm - until the last line ? I wonder whether 'protect sleep' would keep the rhythm without losing too much meaning?

The candle is something your daughter made?

Love this and the beauty of the colors. Phantasmagoric in art...I'm loving that!

Reminds me of childhood days spent fingerpainting and creating priceless works of art, more precious to my mother than an original Picasso :)

The candle project! The inner shapes and colors, not to forget Light itself are all captured here.

Emma Major said...

thanks sherry, it always amazes me what kids create

Emma Major said...

inspired, that would be really perfect, thanks

Emma Major said...

yes, it was a craft at a messy church session I lead

Emma Major said...

if art can't capture it then what can?

Emma Major said...

absolutely. I never understand the mums who don't want to take their kids craft home,they're missing out
