Why does the wind blow
and the flower grow?
Why does the rain fall
and trees stand so tall?
Why the hurricane,
tornado and earthquake?
Devastation, fear and death lie in their wake.
Why does the child die so small?
The evil man grow old and tall?
Life brings many questions to my mind.
It seems no answers to be found.
I stand in dread.
I see the boat upon the shore.
In wonder stand,
Not the answers, that I seek.
But an end to the questions that I ask.
As nature takes me by the hand
and flights of wonder shows.
And in lifes knowledge daily grow.
This painting was inspired by what this poems tries to say. I am not sure the poem expresses well my inner thoughts or the painting what the eye saw that day. But the feeling was intense and a moment I will never forget.
It was Sharonwho made comment on the first time that I posted this work. She said if I remember correctly that it might make her look at what is around her where she lives. That made me feel good that day because it seemed to say just what I was thinking at the time of its creation.
Sadly it still has no home. But it will always be a painting I remember and I will never paint over it.
