Come with me will you?
On a journey to a land
Whence came three visions written
Upon tablets made of sand.

The first told of days long gone
When sea controlled the sky.
The moon bowed down to oceans
And never questioned why.

The second told of things to come,
Of yesterdays return.
The forest endured the fire
Which continued yet to burn.

The third, unlike the others,
Spoke only of the fawn,
Which lived upon the mountain
And retreated until the dawn.

This gentle figure could be seen
From any hilltop near.
Descending toward the drinking place
Where no human dared appear.

Treasured moment this became
The first I saw this sight.
Together with the visions read,
Amisdt sparrows in slow flight.

All combined into one world,
Along with visions three.
You will be much happier
If once you come with me. . .

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…

    Rhonda, this is truly, truly, magnificently beautiful. Reading your words whilst hearing the music is an amazing experience. Looking at the image larger I thought ‘They look like artichokes’. Then I read your info and they are indeed artichokes.
    Looks like the artichokes are guarding the entrance to another world – a beautiful place where the fawn lives and comes to drink and if we keep looking through those portals we shall surely see the gentle fawn.
    Wonderful, Rhonda. You always take me to places I have never been before.

  • Sue, your enjoyment of this makes me so, so happy. . . honestly, I thought this was a bit blah but I liked that it seemed to be a gate where a hidden story was behind it. Thus, the invitation. I love that you saw so much in it…
