Internal Landscapes

Artist Samantha Keely Smith paints abstract oceanic landscapes that are at once menancing and serene, a clash of light and colour that she refers to as “internal landscapes.” 

Artist: Samantha Keely Smith

Like The Waves From The Shore

The time has come
to sail my oceans

Rolling away from you
like the waves from the shore
rippling out to the vastness of the sea
that beckons my ship of folly

I’ll not ask you
to stand the night vigil
on the shoreline
of memory

You are here
on the beaches of my memory
even though I drift the tides

If you should look
into a starlit night
and see a reflection of me
know only that
I will one day
come crashing again
to the shore
swept homeward
by the pull
of the tide
and
you
