Dance to the Gravestones

It’s a maddening force this slip of the wind
between the shadows of root and sky.

We like to dance to the gravestones and exchange
whispered night dreams
but really, where do we go at night?

It’s a quieting revelry of bones and need-blood
the ancients who speak of half lies.

A neighboring field, run sweating love-lunge
of grasping breathless hushed cries.

Let us be the night queen of everything unseen
in this makeshift lullaby.

For we want and we crave it-
this world, can we make it?
To live
although we will die.

Painted this for my lovely hubby on his 30th birthday. I used to think Celtic knots would be hard to draw/paint until I tried it. Simply draw a spiraled line and connect it to its beginning. Outline this loopiness all around it but take care to draw every other line crossing so that the lines alternate between which one is getting crossed. Ok… That may have sounded confusing, but trust me, experiment and you will get the hang of it! Good luck and thanks for stopping in~

I painted this to remind me of all the sacred, secret places I want to find.
