Artist's Description

I was in the affluent suburb in Beverly Hills and noticed adjacent to expensive boutiques, stores and high rent offices was an untended botanical garden. I was not familar with the kinds of plants, but knew many were dying and the contrast of this neglected garden with the opulance of Rodeo Drive and well groomed people was striking. It looked like an alien landscape, but it quickly transcended in my mind to a visual feast of color, texture, light and became an imaginative delight. I hope you enjoy my magical interpretation of what was once a botanical paradise. This is a photo of one of the old trees. sparce with wonderful form highlighted by the enveloping clouds. It was a cold and crisp day and as sundown came upon us as the misty clouds gave way to a spectacular sunset. This particular tree had a spiritual essence with the central figure’s arms raised towards the heavens. Sally Omar’s poetry adds another dimension to the “spirit tree.” She infuses her beautiful and elegant spirit with words to pair this image with her lovely and beautiful writing.

They wait very patiently
Arms wrapped around SPIRIT TREE
Somberly they are there
They can’t go anywhere
Souls that are left and cannot retrieve
Anything that they believed
Will they ever be let free
From the beautiful SPIRIT TREE
An Angel with wings of gold
Will come ever so bold
And grab their hands
And bring them to Spiritland
There they will again
Walk with old friends
And find a resting spot
Something they had forgot
When you pass the SPIRIT TREE
Remember none are free
This may be the place where you will go
No one ever knows
And should you be one day be there
You will have to say a prayer
So the Angel will come for you
And fly you to Spiritland too
