Do the atoms come together?

through the eye of a star
oil on canvas
~

Do the atoms come together?
For our momentary pleasure
Or do we form them as we go?
Creating all that we may know
~
Little specks in each you will find
That reflects all of humankind
Within the centre of the joy
In the heart of the girl or boy
~
And every duality
Could be just one reality
The probability of fate
Ability to love or hate
~
For there is more than one and zero
Between both Christ and Nero
For there is the gratitude of
The magnitude of love

~

Nick, this is a beautiful, very inspired, painting. And the poem is nice: I like the rhymes, too.
About the film The Song of Bernadette, I really hope you can find it on DVD or VHS.

I enjoy the way the "magnitude of love" creates a new perspective here.

Serena- the size of the canvas is 16" by 20" most of my work is about this size. I would like to work on larger canvas but they take up so much room.

Thanks for all your kind comments I enjoy reading them!

Serena said...
