I have an oasis

For my illustration project at Goldsmiths; an illustration for a poem named I Have An Oasis.


I have an oasis,
It's up in the clouds
Away from the rush
And the roar of the crowds,
Away from the pushing
And pulling and pain,
Away from the sadness
And anger and strain,
Away from the envy
And cheating and greed,
Away from the pressure -
What more could I need?
I grow my geraniums
And lettuce that's curdled,
In my little garden
On top of the world.

Poem by Colin McNaughton
