Just a random doodle today… not sure what he’s gazing at. Maybe just striking a pose?
UPDATE: A sonnet from Tom for the Elizabethan… contemplating more than what’s above.
This ivory pillar, holding high the dome
of intellect and reason so sublime,
might be parted yet, as we from Rome
are parted by our Queen’s great Right Divine.
Expose the neck and cast the eye to Heaven
where God is dwelling high with angels bright
while here below we wait for Seal Seven
to open up: release the dead to fight.
Wars and rumours slither through the land
unrest and plague make Armageddon known:
the time soon comes for Englishmen to stand
for or against the Queen upon Her throne.
How might it feel to have my neck exposed
to treason’s axe in revolution’s throes?
