Painting

IMG_8900Draw a broad white

outline of the frontier

between dreams and you

then add shadows

to distract yourself from time

and autumn, and the night

and the cold feeling

  1. This reminds me of the way an artist often divides a picture into definite foreground-middleground-background…only it plays with those ideas in almost a reversal of the usual way. The dark silhouettes of trees, up close, the jet contrail as such a definite separation, and then pure blue sky. There is definitely a change or separation taking place, and it’s almost a melancholy foreboding, but not infinitely so. I enjoyed seeing and reading this, Sylvie.

  2. Yes. I love the illustration and the purposeful way of the words; listen, they say, I’m telling you a way to get through this. Yes. And I do like the photo. And I need to know what that tree is…

    1. I very much like what you put between the lines arlingwoman. The tree is in the pine tree family, but I do not know its exact name. Your comment reminded me how I was impressed by those trees when I arrived.

      1. Ah, Norfolk pine! Oh my goodness. I had no idea what they looked like when they grew to their full stature! They’re sold a lot in pots here and need relatively warm winters to survive. I did not recognize the full grown form. Thank you . A years long mystery solved…
