Under the Lotus Moon

This artwork was created at the time I met and fell in love with my wife. She was so beautiful to me and she was very into yoga at the time so this oil pastel was my very first gift I gave her. This poem is coupled with it as visual inspiration.

Love is to the spirit

what a moon beam is to the night

A smile so bright

darkness hides under a rock

defeated by the brilliance

of the white-hot light

dancing on the stars

staying awake all night

darkness runs

to the corners of the earth

escaping the wrath

of its’ competitors heart

Love is to the spirit

what a moon beam is to the night

reflections of galaxies

upon the oceans bright

mirrors of adoration

adorning faces despite

the darkness that challenges

loves white-hot light.
