Many that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life... And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament..
Daniel 12:2-3
This is another portion of the same root that I shot yesterday..But this time the eyes look like they are closed in sleep....As I also did in the previous picture I made this into a diptych with one side turned to mirror the other side.
Wise and astute,
Is an owl like root,
Asleep in the ground.
Awake, it has found
There is life permanent
To give a hoot
About the firmament....
Poetry by me, AJP

    This is a very cool abstract Andrea! When I was small I could find faces in the paneling in our house. It always put me to sleep searching for them.

    Thank you all for your comments...I enjoy finding these abstracts ...My late father and his brother (both gone now) used to hunt for unique formations like this in driftwood...My uncle had an extensive collection in his basement and I can now appreciate the thrill it had for them in seeking nature's art.
