Asleep in a Dream

Caught in the Web

It's only a vague memory now. Was it Mom singing "Asleep in a Dream" or was it Pop singing, "Asleep in the Deep? And did one of them play it on the piano? So long ago, but I still can hum the melody. Even at five it haunted my heart.

And over fifty years later I find I have made this painting. A child in cocoon. A child waiting to awake. A child caught in the strings and webs of life?

Mystics say it's just a dream from which we're waiting to awake.

I'm waiting.
I'm waiting.
I hear this melody playing upon my heart.
