you probably remember the video for "her eyes dart round" by the felice brothers that i posted awhile ago? this piece is to honor that song. (the video's down below in case you'd like to watch it again.)
ooh my love is a light as a dove
and her skin is fair and dark is her hair.
and her eyes dart round and fall on the ground
and her lips move along to an old country song.
well down south you'll find among the high pines
an old liquor store where we danced on the floor
oh the light on the wall, it brightens the hall
but the room in the back is quiet and black.
what keeps me alive is the green in her eyes
and the sweet distant drone of her voice on the phone
can i hear in death your voice and your breath?
can i hear them sounds in life underground?
(prehnite, iolite, aquamarine, and smoky quartz)
lightly she walks among the white storks.
and craning her neck, she steps from the deck.
could i bow in the sand to your lily white hand?
can my head gently rest in your lily white breast?
(yes, i accidentally put "gently"...)
i've made this piece for the upcoming durango arts festival. i am planning to make several more such "statement pieces". what do you think?
also, thank you so much to all of you who left comments or sent e-mails and convos regarding my hazel post. it really truly, sincerely means so much to me to have your lovely feedback. i appreciate you so much!
