Art: Once I slept Now... by Artist Alma Lee
Once I Sleep II

Where once I slept upon the softest vine
with sweetest of dreams
I am now awakened to sudden rudeness
and within my heart there are screams

Where once once I lied with love
and the sweetest wine
Now my nakedness is bared without cover
only hidden in poisoned ivy now entwined

I should have known
my lover warned me in the course of time
where once love was served
now hatred dines

Still I remain, in my lover’s embrace
while dying in the fall
he will descend from up above
and I will answer his sweet call…

This is a very personal piece for me. It is about my personal awakening to something I had always known would come, and that quite harshly. At first I thought just keep you eyes closed and welcome sleep but failed miserably. But being awake has now become an Awakening whose truth will define me for the rest of my life. I will never be out of the company of my great and faithful lover.

This is an original collage of my drawings, decorative papers and Beeswax and gold leafing details. It is 12×12″ I finished it with a PS filter.
