'The Dream' i hear his voice somewhere behind me calling my name softly and sweet 'Who's there?' i ask, half to myself as i turn to see who's eyes to meet but to my surprise there's no one there yet i don't feel denied i have a desire to be with him a longing i cannot hide i hear myself call out a name a name i know by heart and i know he hears my pleading cry for i feel his quick depart 'why do you leave?' i ask him as a tear falls down my cheek but no reply does he give me though i know he longs to speak i watch him turn and look my way a calling arm extends a weak smile then he starts to cry i know he understands if i could i'd follow but i can't build up the strength and the world he wants to take me to is his but not my place 'we belong in different worlds' i say with much regret 'but we can always meet again right here where we first met' and as he slowly closed the door a cold wind danced around me i knew soon i would have to wake and face my sad reality   The colored version of 'Glancing Back'. I'm not sure why i chose a rainbow theme, but it looks good. I was going for more grey in the tail, to reenforce the idea of her being manatee. Some said it would make a good bookmark... So i altered it a little bit (put ripples in the backgound as well as a poem that i wrote that fits her, 'The Dream', above^) and made it a better size for it. And voila, a bookmark! I'm still working on printing though, email me if you might want to order one! :i)   Ref image: N/A Meduim: Graphite Pencil, Photoshop. Size: 5 x 8 in. Date: Nov 2003
