Art Through Perera

Gabriola island

“My desires lead me through life, my passion keeps me driven and my inspiration keeps me motivated.”


Maarten Perera

The Inspiration

They pushed me hard

Leaves fell as they blew

But I stood strong

And came back anew

The Seed

Planted from ancient times

Reborn to this day

A forgotten seed

Never to go away

The Look

The men do see

With a wink of an eye

It's the charm of youth

My heart hits the sky

The Dreamer

Life will always shine

Upon the rough terrain

I'll keep my spirits high

Even through the pain

The Soul

Finally I'm alive

I hear the drop of a pin

I open my eyes

And take a deep breath in

The Need

Naked I wait

Until caressed by thee

Pulsing redness in the night

Aching body to be free

The Expectations

We know the thoughts of the tree

When gone, she'll shed a tear

Her fruit has withered and died

A tormented soul in fear
