Sandman No. 2


Close your eyes. Tell me what you see.

A field, with trees, in the valley between two seas.
the cold night mist is drawing closer, a stranger's voice in my ear,
asking me, in a whisper,
"do you feel me near?"

here i thought i was alone but discovered,
am but one of thousands of flowers.
each stem carrying a dreaming dream,
trembles unknowingly, under the stranger's limb.

To escape, i try opening my eyes,
but the petals only shake.
"Please, let me wake!" i plead.
the stranger looks away.


i started another Sandman oil painting while waiting for the first one to dry. "Dreamland", 24" x 36"

Oil painting is awesome, one could really get addicted to it (and I'm not talking about the smell of turpentine ;))! Great work, can't wait to see "Sandman No.2" finished :)
