On Top of My Dimension

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I'm now standing on top of my dimension
And feeling dizzy thru the falling air
With all sorts of freshness in comprehension
Those in flying girdles from underground to here
Paper weighting thoughts of my ongoing dreams
Floating about in their rotating high flight
So my paper sheet the real thing now seems
What is this perception of its misguided light?

At digit skyscrapers I'm standing tall
In slippery slipper with a new vision
I might plunge in and take the heaping fall
Find those lost footsteps that once were precision
Come with me on my journey - to the end
Together we'll our own certainty bend

Here's a small Idea. Take a photograph of someone looking into the sky then draw their thoughts of the world or what their wants or needs. Maybe even another world we don't even know about yet. Take Care, Thank You.

Absolutely incredible. So immensely creative!! This invokes thought, and even more emotion. It creates off the wall associations and altered senses. I love it! I love that both feet are symetrically appearing the same distance away. The depth in the drawing and the abstract imagination. Its interesting that the boxes go in every which way though all appear parallel. All I have to say is that this artwoork has phenomenal imagination behind it and I appreciate you sharing it with us! Even the rough edges of the drawing give it an intriguing aspect. The checkered shoes that compliment the towers being stepped on in that alternate dimensin is a great contribution to the overall appeal. I hate to repeat myself but I love it!

Damned if that isn't one of the most creative drawings I've seen in a long time. It's the perfect mix of reality and fantasy where you've mixed that very ground with the skyscrapers we find looming over our shoulders, and combined them to form some kind of Twilight Zone shit, where our perceptions of reality are questioned and we're no longer sure what's up and what's down. :iconhypnotizeplz:

It's this kind of imagination and talent that the world needs more of, and needless to say, you've done a brilliant bit of work here. Awesome job, and who knows, I might have to watch if I continue seeing stuff like this. Keep it up! =)
