North Carolina Fog...

An original painting
by Erika Morrison
24"X 30"
acrylic on canvas
                           

SHIMMERING DREAM

CRYSTAL LUCID LOVER
YOU TOUCH
EMBRACE ME IN MY DREAMS

THOUGH AWAKE
I CANNOT HOLD YOU
ANYMORE THAN I COULD HOLD THE FLOWING WATER OF A STREAM

I'M LOST WHEN YOU ARE NEAR
AS MY WORDS
MY ACTIONS DO BETRAY
HOW ELOQUENCE ESCAPES ME
AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR SAY

STILL I WANT YOU LIKE NO OTHER
ELUSIVE VISION
SHIMMERING LIGHT
AND BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT HAVE ME
I'M RESIGNED TO HOPE TO HAVE YOU IN THE NIGHT


Poem by Lance Bunda
from  the Brainticket album
*Alchemic Universe*

Love the mystique of the North Carolina Fog. The bend in the road adds so much to the mood.

Oh we all have to learn the same life lessons, don't we?
Guess knowing we're not alone is our solace for heartbreak.

Hi Erika,

You have captured the fog so well and the poem is beautifully written too.
I hope that you are having a lovely week.
