Behold I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but shall all be changed.
I Corinthians 15:: 51

The meaning of Chimera is "Imaginary Monster." and tried to illustrate it through this image
for the challenge.

A mythical monster may enter
From the abyss of its heart.
After hibernating all winter,
The earth splits apart...

Poetry by me, AJP

I posted another version of this stump earlier in March at the following URL:

This version is switched around in a different direction through the process of a mirrored image. It also looks like the earth is parting underneath the feet of the" mythical monster" into an abyss cavity after he arrives out of the stump..

    Thank you all for your kind response. I did post an earlier entry for this challenge but replaced it yesterday for this entry which I thought fit the meaning of the word Chimera better...The contest ends
    in two days, if I am not mistaken so I took a risk and got it in a little bit late. At the moment my computer is working terribly after we had a storm yesterday and I was lucky that I got it uploaded when
    I did...I might be a little slower in getting around to make comments until we install a new operating system because my computer moves like a turtle who hasn't woke up yet:)
