Triptych IV: " Immortality" (Emily Dickinson, poem )

Title from Emily Dickinson's poem:

"The reticent volcano keeps

His never slumbering plan --
Confided are his projects pink
To no precarious man.

If nature will not tell the tale
Jehovah told to her
Can human nature not survive
Without a listener?

Admonished by her buckled lips
Let every babbler be
The only secret people keep
Is Immortality."

Cool. Another person who is inspired by poetry! Dickinson is one of my favorite poets to illustrate with Etegami. Nice work!

I love the mystery of it. And it's a triptych!

Steve, this is brilliant! A little bit Bosch-esque (Boschian? Boschile?), but comic too. Love it!

Thanks! I love Dickinson's poetry (and I share a birthday with her).
I like "Bosch-esque" even though it's a bit cumbersome. ;) And thanks!
