6x6 Oil by T L Cope
....... faces in my head
they hold on to things,
ways .....
scratch and claw against time.
I am old only in my reflection
alone in a sea of millions.
It is hard to understand today
when tomorrow is already here ........

"Blue Madonnas" 16x20 Oil on Canvas by TL Cope;
Eyes strain
Wait, Just Wait,
Give dark a chance
This bone black death of light
Let your sense switch from sight
Your vision now lies in touch 
It should be cool
but it's not
sweat drips like rain
hands grip familiar things
just waiting for a pinhole of light
it's coming to your rescue
 but first
ghost like shapes in blue
 madonnas dancing around the room
Like a religion, beliefs and faith
If you stand still
you are safe
your are saved
by those madonnas
Those Madonna's dancing around the room

Surfer Oil on Canvas 16x20 by Terrence L Cope August 7th, 2013
I pull out those memories of my time in the tempest, gathering strength from the wind and the waves, the ravaging time that has long since calmed and gentled to permanently grey in this fog that has settled on old aged hands still reaching for meaning of those wind tossed seas and the passing of faces ... long lost to shores and lapping of time, abrasive in the rolling of swells that long ago settled in my soul...and does not believe its own reflection ....

Long boarder" 16x20 Oil on Canvas .... day one "click to enlarge"
And in that life .....a surfer
Mastering the powers of the sea
But that was another life
before I was planted like a tree
