More than eyes can see between you and me

oil on canvas
~
Are we just pawns upon a board?
Just little puppets on a cord
Just picture within a frame
Just players within a game
Just candles that burn down
Casting shadows all around
Or are we the creators of
More than our own beauty and love?

Hi Nick!

In a very reflective mood?
even the last one on future..

life and times are so confusing, yet..when you ask

"Or are we the creators of
More than our own beauty and love?"

It's upto us to decide...we make our reality...atleast for the small worlds we live in...that's what i think..i have felt that's true, too...

Nice painting Nick...loved the fun aspect to it...

life is after a mix of work and play...again, my thoughts go that way..

wishes,
devika

Nick, Lovely paintings and poems both. I, too, am an Audrey Hepburn fan. Did you love "Breakfast at Tiffany's" best, as I did, or what is your favorite Audrey Hepburn film?
