Title: Can You Stand My Rain 

By Christian Bailey 


I see the blue clouds in front of the sunlight 

I feel the calmness of the wind blowing at me 

But now why am i seeing darkness coming my way

Darkness? What darkness do you see


WHERE?  Now I see I’m glad we have our umbrellas 

I’m glad to because I don’t wanna get wet 

Yeah you right me either 

I think we should head home now


Yes home? It’s going to rain

But we have our umbrellas with us 

Okay? Let’s go home PLEASE!!

But we’re already home?

What do you mean we are already home?

My home is with you by your side wherever we are 

I’m glad you think that way, because I feel the same way

With your pain, and struggles I will be by your side 

And wherever we are I will always have your pride with me 

Any time, Any where my love 

Courtney “Ceaux” Buckley is a New Orleans-born multidisciplinary artist living and working in New Orleans, Louisiana. For over a decade, Ceaux’s robustly vivid paintings have pierced through the rich pulsating cultural fabric of New Orleans and its people. His visual work has been featured and exhibited in an array of venues including Axiom Gallery, The Mckenna Museum of African American Art and more recently, ExhibitBE. His career background includes musical production, education, and fashion design, which has given him a unique capability to focus on a range of subjects not commonly covered by other visual artists. “When people look at my work, I want them to see a part of themselves in it, a sense of nostalgia.”  His upcoming exhibit will be featured in Axiom’s Art Madness V, slated for Spring 2018. Ceaux was trained at The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts.
