Beauty of Nature

Enchanted Forest

by David Ruhl

Nature Art Contest Contest Entry 
The Enchanted Forest

Gem-crusted roots lie exposed on the ground
reflecting the light, distorting the sound
Where opaline waters fill rivers and streams
an Enchanted Forest comes alive in our dreams

The beauty of nature beckons us near
reassuringly safe, with nothing to fear
But beyond the glitter, beyond the light
the darkness is moving, something's not right

And if we look deeper, what might we find
in the dimly lit shadows of our slumbering mind
Sometimes a nightmare, sometimes a dream
this mysterious place is not what it seems...

I created the image first, and then as I was looking it over I noticed that the background looked a little dark and spooky compared to the foreground. So, I wrote the poem to explain what I was seeing.

I've been doing computer art for 13 years, but have been writing poems, rhymes, and such since I was a kid. This is the first time I've put the two together. I hope you enjoy it!
Post Type: Digital Art Digital Painting | Mixed Media Created on a blank canvas using a photo for reference. Then I ran it through several filters for effects.
