About this painting

This painting is another music-inspired art piece.  It’s based on another Micah Gilbert song called Ghost Songs – particularly the following lyrics:

Feel the earth beneath your fingers
As you holler at the sky
Tell your haunted dreams to the trees
Share them with the wind
Let your burdens go
And fall away
You can’t carry them

I just love the notion that all of us have the power to just let things go and burst forth to be happier people.  Sometimes we just need to be reminded of the simplicity of the act of letting go.  My hope is that this painting will make others feel like bursting out into happiness, too. I know. Corny. But hey, if that’s what it takes to be happy….!

The blue horizon
Sees another sun
Rising slow
From ashes into dawn
The pink and the grey
Marching on the day
The humbling wind
Blows across your face


Go on and sing your ghost songs
If they help you
Make your pain subside
Feel the earth beneath your fingers
As you holler at the sky
Tell your haunted dreams to the trees
Share them with the wind
Let your burdens go
And fall away
You can’t carry them

The hour here
Has finally come undone
What is it now
That keeps you on the run
A tumbling weed
That cannot find it’s place
Let the horses run
Let go of the reigns

Go on and sing your ghost songs
If they help you make your pain subside
Feel the earth beneath your fingers
As you holler at the sky
Tell your haunted dreams to the trees
Share them with the wind
Let your burdens go and fall away
You can’t carry them
