The Art and Poetry of Mark Erickson

It's music in paint, it's "spectrum" and curves. 

Anatomy of Flight - 18x12-canvas

the single sheet of lyrics

in the temptation of nature
her tree limbs sway
the leaves
swirl along in the rhythm
of the wind,
the ground underneath
folds amongst the rocks
and the dirt,
while the bugs climb through
their forest of grass and twigs
the size of skyscrapers and towers,
secrets hidden under the pebbles
soaring into the mountains
as the sun pours down
in her naked body
cooking the land
her legs move
her hand touching
in her single sheets
of her lost paradise
