I Believe in Dreams

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I believe in dreams,
That come in a single wish;
Golden winter beams,
That come in the morn bliss.
I believe in you,
And all that is within;
Days that will renew,
And a heart that shall win.

Hours are now deep dark,
With falling shadows;
Some moments have their spark,
In the dawn's glow.
Fulfill each your dream,
With your new inspirations;
You will have your theme,
In their beautiful sensations.

I believe in dreams,
That are forever flowing;
Exhilaration forward streams,
Aurora borealis glowing.
I believe in you,
And what you'll stand for;
If it is coming true,
Today - tomorrow and yore.

Two things:

1) Her expression here makes her look like Summer Glau, and
2) At first glance, this looks like a Boticelli painting.

Gorgeous as always!

The first moment I came upon this, I'm reminded of Botticelli's Primavera. Truly beautiful.

Its gorgeous. Not only her of cource but the picture and the poem too.
The picture makes it look like a painting of an angel, but you can still (barely) see it's a picture. Amazing job on that, no clue how but I love its effect!

Strangely, it reminds me the character of Gladiator while he walks through the wheat / crops.

I really need to go through my stuff...I have a vintage postcard with nearly the same feel, except that one is an illustration and not a photograph. Wow!

I was actually going to critique this one. But After sitting in front of it for a good 5 minutes, I couldn't find something to improve upon. So I decided a comment would just be best.

I love how the image looks so surreal. The dress, the color of the lipstick, the field, the tree...all have it's own point where they just create the perfect photo. Even the tree line in the background adds to it. I love it to pieces.
