A dream of you (illustrated)

You truly stop to smell the roses
You notice the dew on the leaves
You can read from the bark on the trees
Nature’s little secrets open to play for you
Like the vintage musical boxes

Your step is light
Even if your coat looks heavy
You are different
Distant, attractive yet unattainable
Like a sailing ship at the horizon

Here, on the other side of the things
Where the dreams gather to rest
I met a Dream of You
Beautiful like the clef and the notes
Awaiting the One to make music with

A dream of you – Zoe Quixote

A dream of you (illustrated) by 


poetry, ink, vesna, zoe

Born in spring, my name means Spring. I love poetry in all its forms.

The word “poetry” derives from the Latin feminine noun poetria, meaning not “poetry” but “poetess”.

    Beautifully matched…the essence of the drawing..so fantastically done
    and the feelings emanated in words, that are looking for emotions that
    cannot be expressed through paintings.
    Zoe Quixote can be proud of your soul on the artistic piece,Vesna.

    Lovely work Vesna. I always enjoy seeing artists work hand in hand. There is always twice the beauty.

    Absolutely beautiful Vesna; nothing like the beauty of one seen in a dream; attractive yet unattainable – if only we could forever sleep.
