Jesse Quam - Mystery




My splendid Art, you inspire me to write.
I love the way you see and listen,
invading my mind day and through the night,
always dreaming about the created mysteries.

Let me compare you to a sanctuary?
You are more dizzy, fizzy and busy.
Snow chills the berries of January,
and wintertime has the blended dizzy.

How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love your ominous Earth, eyes and head.
Thinking of your fancy Eyes fills my days.
My love for you is the active wellhead.

Now I must away with a sublime heart,
remember my vast dreams whilst we're apart.

Jesse Quam - Elephant Love

Linocut print by Jesse Quam

Now the question is - are you ready, for the real revolution?
Which is the evolution of the mind?
If you seek then you shall find that we all come from the divine.
You dig what I'm saying?
Now if you take heed to the words of wisdom
that are written on the walls of life
then universally, we will stand and divided we will fall.
Because love conquers all, you understand what I'm saying?
This is a call to all you sleeping souls.
Wake up and take control of your own cipher
and be on the lookout for the spirit snipers
trying to steal your light; you know what I'm saying?
Look within side yourself, for peace
Give thanks, live life and release.
You dig me? You got me?

Jesse Quam - Thrift Store Kiss


Written by Jesse Quam

I believe the most amazing and interesting things stumble into your life by a mysteries accident.  In my pursuit to find cheap frames at a thrift store last week, this wonderful photograph stumbled into my life.  Then without a doubt in my mind, I realized it must be appropriated into an original painting.  I feel the world becomes an abstract painting when you kiss the person you love.  Life around you becomes surreal and you melt into their world.
