The Night Queen

Pen & Ink Fine Art By Doug Ashby
The darkness of the evening was encompassing.
Almost nothing, not even the night queen could penetrate.
The darkness is now our ally.

For in the darkness we come alive.
Finding our voice.
Finding our solace.
Finding our freedom.

We created this world to suit us.
We created this world to the best of our ability.
We didn't create this world to transform.
We didn't create this night to hide.
This darkness is not why we choose.

For darkness has become a welcome respite.
For darkness is now our friend.

As always, I hope you like the work,

Thanks, Doug.

The Edge Of Tomorrow

Pen & Ink Fine Art By Doug Ashby
As we watched this new world from a distance,
this world that we shaped through our collective ego's,
we each wondered in turn what lie ahead.

Was it our impetuous that brought us to this point?
Was it our over confidence in a power?
A power that turned out to be short sighted?
Or was it a destiny that has yet to reveal it's true nature?

Some believe we have learned a little,
and that is the reason we watch,
watch from afar, from the edge of tomorrow.

However I believe differently.
I believe this day has come to deliver us to unfamiliar space.
To territory designed to humble, designed to educate.
Designed to reduce us once again to the true nature of what and who we are.

For looking back from the edge is our only hope.

I truly hope you like the artwork and the accompanying words. If you are interested in downloading and printing a copy for your self please visit my Downloads page.
