The future
Floats
In unknown
Possibilities
While we
Drift
In uncertainty
Pushed
From moment to moment
By the
Sly hands of time
Until
We are
No more.

I am sorry that I have not posted something new here for a while. I have been caught up in the seasonal routine of shopping for gifts and food and writing  and mailing a few Christmas cards. I have a feeling that I am not alone. 😀

Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you will find a way to enjoy this time of year with the people you care about the most.

The Witch’s Well

Happy Halloween! I hope you enjoy this poem inspired by the work of
Edgar Allan Poe . . .

“The Witch’s Well” – digital artwork by Arlene G. 

I made a wish
At the Witch’s Well
Unswayed by
Dark tales
The villagers would tell
Of well wishers
Who died
Under its spell
One wish and
One drop
Of my blood
In its black water
Were all I would need
To bring back
My beloved Evangeline.

I waited
An hour
Maybe two
Watching for her
In the distance
Owls and ravens
High above
In the broken trees
Looked out too
But sadly
Evangeline
Was not in view.

It was after midnight
When I finally left the well
I felt foolish
Waiting by its side
I regretted
I had no horse to ride
When suddenly
I saw
In the dimming moonlight
A pale fair maiden
In a long white gown
It was she–
My lost Evangeline!

She beckoned me
To follow her
Down a misty path
We walked together
Hand in hand
She was warm
Despite the October cold
Her dark hair
Scented with lilacs
As it was before
I could not believe
That she was
No more
Until suddenly
I saw
Her eyes
Afire
With a deep red glow
And from her sweet lips
Cried the voice
Of a fiend
Deep and low,
“Say good-bye
To Evangeline
And all you know
This is your end
To hell you will go!”

Movie Poster Misadventure

Moonlight Gallery

This is a movie poster that I created for a film that has not been made yet. It is supposed to be a fan fiction film based on a well-known fantasy film.

I stopped working on this project because my client wanted me to copy another artist’s work and combine it with the background of my poster. I told him that making an almost identical copy of another artist’s work could be considered copyright infringement. I also told him that it might be okay to do a derivative work if you have permission of the original artist, but this is a legal gray area that I did not want to get into. I don’t like the idea of copying other people’s work in general, and I certainly don’t want to get sued for doing so.
