I know we only advertised this collaboration one day in advance, but here it is:
By: Grace Y. Estevez & Francis Joseph LaManna
Awakened by the thunder,
And the rain,
So real-a-dream in my slumber,
Only memories remain.
Felt shaken, drenched in sweat,
Still sleeping yet awake
Try to steady my breadth
feel real, no longer fake.
Conscious reality now that I’m awake,
Brought forth from a world of dreams
Make no mistake
A spark of passion with golden beams.
Lights up my unsure mind
Then sparks within my heart
Stirred up and well defined
This moment marks the start.
An old-fashioned loose leaf canvas,
Sensational revelations in ink
Only wisdom and spark can grant this
Through artistical blends-woven in sync.
Fears cease and surrender,
Both tears and canvas dry
Inspired by splendor
To relentlessly try.
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as we did creating it. Once again, I’d like to personally thank Grace Y. Estevez from the website Grace of the Sun. If you would like to read more of Grace’s work please visit https://graceofthesun.com/2021/05/05/gift/
