Cityscape — Mixed Media   Leave a comment

Vancouver Skyline (1 of 1)-2 Mixed Media blogCityscape — Mixed Media — Image by kenne

I am drifting as I listen to Purple Haze,
buildings reflect up from the water below.

Remember when we first saw the cityscape,
dreamy cosmic waves of mid-summer light?

Close your eyes, you will still see your body
drifting across the sky as the clouds move

through a matrix of lines and rainbow colors.
The edges of the skyline begin to drop as

the cityscape embraces and slowly enters
the maze of puzzles in the northern sky.

Purple Haze (September, 2009) — Computer Art by kenne

About the time
I’m feeling high
I start acting funny —
don’t know why

Today becomes tomorrow
Or is it the end of time
Soon to be floating in
An ocean of deathless life

Feeling gratitude for God’s gift
Awaking the soul
Becoming void as I was
When I was not yet

“Turn from gazing after”
To kiss the sky
Devoid of all
Foreign images

Only to be
Born again
From inside the outside
Looking in

Jimi had a spell
On his brain
Purple in color
Inspired by a haze

Deluded by doubt
“Am I happy or in misery?”
To be answered not in the words
But the color of the haze

Purple Haze all in my brain,
lately things don’t seem the same,
actin’ funny but I don’t know why
‘scuse me while I kiss the sky.

— from Purple Haze, by Jimi Hendrix

“We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.”

Purple Haze

About the time
I’m feeling high
I start acting funny
But don’t know why

Today becomes the day after today
Or is it the end of time
Only to be floating in
An ocean of deathless life

Feeling gratitude for God’s gift
Awaking the soul
Becoming void as I was
When I was not yet

“Turn from gazing after”
To kiss the sky
Devoid of all
Foreign images 

Only to be
Born again
From inside the outside
Looking in 

Jimi had a spell
On his brain
Purple in color
Inspired by a haze

Deluded by doubt
“Am I happy or in misery?”
To be answered not in the words
But the color of the font

Purple, The Color

Representing various shades,
Combining hot red, cool blue —
Nature loves purple.

The richness of deep, dark purple,
Symbolizing authority, royalty,
Clothed in mystery.

Lighter shades are romantic,
Delicate, considered precious —
Adding excitement.

Linking the wisdom of blue,
With the love of red,
A haze in my eyes.
