lions whelping in the avenues

Strange Dream, drawing by SRS, 2012Strange dream a few nights ago. The following morning I tried to recapture in a drawing some elements of the dream.

In the dream, I saw a strange cow-like beast with claws and sharp fangs dripping blood (top left corner).

The dream included a solipsistic episode in which I wondered where my self lives and who it really is: 'Who is this "I" that feels it wants a cigarette...' (handwritten text on r.h.s. towards the bottom).

I found myself wondering in a metallic city of geometric shapes and chequerboard patterns, with impossible dimensions twisting back upon, across and within each other.

Above was a doom-flecked night sky, fraught with comets, supernovae and astral lions whelping in cosmic avenues of dark energy (nah, not really, but it sounds good, at least to me).

Wow, this is truly amazing! My dreams influence my writing quite a bit. I really wish I could draw or paint too.

Hi Rose, thanks for stopping by. I think everyone has an innate 'artistic' ability. Starting with that, the rest is just practice. Cheers, MM.
