“Painting Rainbows”


Time continues to flow its path
A path not linear but in infinite directions
Merging into infinite dimensions

Rainbow colors Light the way
Fractured brightness cascading the Universe
Messages transmitted from plateaus in space

Time is everywhere and nowhere
A moment is an illusion of play
Tripping the mind with expansion

Creation vanquishes the dead to no more
Spirits rising up touching all sides of space
Inside outside ringing bells and things

Listening to Lao Tzu sketch
Philosophy’s plans

Symbol’s treatise
Faith opening meaning’s door
A fathomless depth

Understanding thoughts
Traveled through time’s corridor
Enters our mind’s eye

Soulfire Phoenix

Soulfire Phoenix

The Phoenix is a universal symbol of rebirth, reincarnation, transformation, renewal and immortality. The Phoenix represents all that is good and kind and is often thought to be the ‘feminine’ counterpart of the yin/yang of Universal Energy. For thousands of years the tales of the ‘Bird of Fire’s’ immolation and resurrection have been told.

The Phoenix is a self reliant creature, only one ever existing at any one time. It is it’s own father, mother and child. All spring from the ashes of it’s fiery transformation.

The Phoenix can bring forth past life memories and aide in the healing of past emotional traumas, both from this life and those you have previously had.

“Playing Games”


View artists carvings
Designs of creatures dancing
Running feet chasing

Answers then questions
Perceive the races outcome
Let beginning end

Crashing heads and balls
Taking down the hero best
Satisfaction comes

Love two one child wins
Hitting tramples tender minds
Winners hug at end

Punch the sphere with fists
Palms wanting to touch the sky
High as one can fly

“I think I fell in love with her…”

Kroyer, Severin - Les Roses

Kroyer, Severin – Les Roses

“I think I fell in love with her, a little bit. Isn’t that dumb? But it was like I knew her. Like she was my oldest, dearest friend. The kind of person you can tell anything to, no matter how bad, and they’ll still love you, because they know you. I wanted to go with her. I wanted her to notice me. And then she stopped walking. Under the moon, she stopped. And looked at us. She looked at me. Maybe she was trying to tell me something; I don’t know. She probably didn’t even know I was there. But I’ll always love her. All my life.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 8: Worlds’ End

“…then you are a writer”

book of magical images growing

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.” ― Ernest Hemingway

“secret world inside…”

Fantasy Your Imaginary World - by Trygothic

Fantasy Your Imaginary World – by Trygothic

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them.
I mean everybody.
All of the people in the whole world,
I mean everybody —
no matter how dull
and boring they are
on the outside.
Inside them
they’ve all got
amazing worlds…
Not just one world.
Hundreds of them.
Thousands, maybe.”

― Neil Gaiman,
The Sandman, Vol. 5: A Game of You

“I believe…” Neil Gaiman

art of the imagination - josephine wall

Art of the Imagination – Josephine Wall

I believe that mankind’s destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it’s aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle…and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.

I believe in a personal god who cares about me and worries and oversees everything I do. I believe in an impersonal god who set the universe in motion and went off to hang with her girlfriends and doesn’t even know that I’m alive. I believe in an empty and godless universe of causal chaos, background noise, and sheer blind luck.

I believe that anyone who says sex is overrated just hasn’t done it properly. I believe that anyone who claims to know what’s going on will lie about the little things too.

I believe in absolute honesty and sensible social lies. I believe in a woman’s right to choose, a baby’s right to live, that while all human life is sacred there’s nothing wrong with the death penalty if you can trust the legal system implicitly, and that no one but a moron would ever trust the legal system.

I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you’re alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

― Neil Gaiman, American Gods
