Acrylic on canvas, 32″x32″
I am born of Earth, yet in this moment the ground feels foreign. I smell the sage vaporizing from the high desert floor. I feel the sun penetrating my heart. Crows call to me from above. My reflection mirrors my grief as I taste the salty tears on my lips. I am one with the Earth, with all her beauty, joy, pain and sorrow. I want to fly away, but my heart is too heavy now for wings. I am here in the desert with my shadow and the Lizard crying a pool of tears. What is this pain that follows me wherever I go? Lizard, take me into the shadow of my reflection that I might see where my dreams live. I must know whether I am dreaming or if I am the dream.
