    Thank you, Maria, Wen and Marie!
    Here is the poem:


    The Beginning And The End


    Regards coming not from the eye,
    But from the depth of times…

    I was hiding in yourself… from myself…

    A thought that serenely rises
    And then silently dies here,
    Howling in another galaxy…

    I had become a mountain,
    Ready to touch
    Anything the sky might have given me…

    You were holding my hand saying
    That you were protecting me
    From the world of the dogs…

    I watched you…

    You drowned in my regard…

    And now I keep my eyes closed...
    So that I could keep you…

    Very good composition. I like the intense simbolism that make them so special.

    Herwig, thank you so much for your comment. The purple of the bottom pics suggests decay, death, the end. At least that was what I had in mind. I agree with you, there is a discrepancy between those pics and the ones above, but it was intentional. Thank you again!

    Thank you very much, Jaime. I wanted it to be emotional. In fact, the disposition of the images is not random. It's supposed to form a Ken trigram (from I Ching), which symbolizes serenity, mountain, the beginning and the end, birth and death, hand, dog, elements which are found in a poem I wrote especially for this collage. Again, thank you! :)
