March 2011 Juried Invitational Exhibition

Lawrence S. Pertillar’s poem inspired me so much to create this painting. Dedicated to my beautiful Megan. “You were my light sweetheart”

When I turned towards the ‘Light’,
It was a brightness…
Never had I witnessed before.

Never had I witnessed such beauty inviting.
And connecting inside me right.

Wonderful was the experience.
Feeding every aspect,
Of my Earthly appetite.
I grew beyond excited.

When I turned towards the ‘Light’,
I became a part of it.
I became thrilled and delighted without a fear to invite.

Ever again was I to feel,
Any memory of being frightened.

This ‘Light’ and energy fed all my needs instantly.
And I knew,
Begging for what I wanted was never again to be.
It was as if,
For eternity I would exist with ‘it’…
This ‘Light’.
