Noticing only that I’m here,
Wondering why I know not where,
I am here but where are they?
Why am I starting to feel this way?

Slowly moving, sight is clearing.
Cautiously feeling the way I do.
War is over, yet fear still lingers
Will we touch hope with our own fingers?

A soft breeze fills the cave
With a softness like the mother’s kiss.
The pale light of the universe
Blows away the dark, red mist.

Something sounding, chanting goodness,
Love is coming onward now.
War is over, Life is happy,
Peace becomes our promised vow.
I am here, alive, living freely,
War is over now. . .

My Artistic Assignment was to illustrate the poem that I had written many years ago.

My Deviant Art
U is for Utopia

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…
