Walk and Let Love Bloom

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Walk and let love bloom
...In two peaceful hearts
There inside is much room
Where a feeling once starts
A bouquet of balloons
To faraway mountain tops
In spring fresh afternoons
Where a brainwave never stops

Stop and listen to a heart
As it boom booms away
It’s where all love will start
Making colors out of gray
And the wishful roads along
In a heart that wonders still
With a beat to beat mood song
That every love shall fulfill

Walk and let the bridge find
Every aspect of our explore
Leave your worries behind
Drift your mind to lover’s shore
Like the birds that wing free
To their waiting new spring
Same to you it then must be
If your feelings of love do sing

Absolutely Outstanding work!

When I first saw this deviation I thought "Wow what an incredible piece of art."

After looking at your whole entire gallery I have fully fallen in love with your art. Your art gives inspiration to anyone who looks at it.

The photo is so simple, yet you take something that would be a novice photo at most, take it and turn it into something that can be put in a gallery beside Picasso and many other world famous artists. You took that photo and turned it into a piece of art that will never be forgotten.

You truly have a gift, an eye for realism and fantasy. Your imagination is outstanding and brings the life into your art.

Out of every deviation I have seen today, this is the one I will be remembering for years to come. And I hope that you will submit it as a Print, because I would love to purchase it!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
48 out of 49 deviants thought this was fair.

I truly love this piece of art. I more of a poet than an artist myself, and admit I don't know the first thing about drawing or creating anything like this. But like in my poetry, if you follow your dreams and imagination, you can make anything come to life.

This couldn't come at a more perfect time. My cousin is getting married in early August. She wants me to write a poem to read during the ceremony for her outdoor wedding. I can certainly look back at this piece for ideas and maybe come up with something better than what I have already written.

Thanks so much for sharing your work with your fellow artists and writers. Don't ever give up on your dreams.

This one is my favorite. They however are all brilliant. My second favorite is the broken hearted guy on the park bench, pining for the lady in red.

This is the first pencil vs. camera piece of art I ever saw, and I was truly blown away by it. Up until now it didn't occur to me that such amazing art could be created by doing something like this. It's original and very nice to look at.
