30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge: Day 24 Stage 3 of Song of the Flower

Song of the Flower
Copyright 2017 Hirschten
Oil on Canvas 24" x 36"

I drink dew for wine, and hearken to
The voices of the birds, and dance
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.

I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.

But I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow.
This is wisdom which man must learn.
-Gibran from Song of the Flower
