Illustration Friday – Ripple (Moonlight Drive – #33)

Let’s swim to the moon, uh huh
Let’s climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin’ that the
City sleeps to hide
Let’s swim out tonight, love
It’s our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive

Let’s swim to the moon, uh huh
Let’s climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side

Nothin’ left open
And no time to decide
We’ve stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive

Let’s swim to the moon
Let’s climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But I can’t be your guide

Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive

Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin’ down, down, down

This week’s Illustration Friday theme is Ripple, and this is my take on it. So tempting to do something featuring a bottle of cheap wine….but no. This is one of those happy sounding songs with a darker meaning. The song is Moonlight Drive, by The Doors. The last few days I’ve had a bit of a creative block, but Moonlight Drive popped into my head today, and this is the result. I don’t want to give it away too much, but although this might look quite a bit abstract, it really is figuratively based. I like the viewer to come up with their own interpretations. Of course you can always cheat and go to the photo credit links…but where’s the fun in that? :)
