Collaboration-III: Responses to This Day's Images

The bare branches! 

A network of the 
crisscrossing 
veins of 
a heart 
in decline! 

Natural lines 
finely-etched 
against the 
scarlet-grey-blue 
dome. 

A fragile nest 
sways 
against the 
force of 
wind and rain 

---silent love triumphs over the brute elements!

stripped with limbs bare 
muted-dark colours 
---autumn produces noir

The world is 
full of colours, 

provided the 
viewer registers 
the divine 
display 

and, 

like 
an 
involved 
stage actor 

becomes integrated 
with the mise-en-scene 

for an excited 
Elizabethan audience. 

Text/s. Actor/s. 
Scene/s. Spectators: 
Seamlessly one
Sublime action.

each spike

sharply delineated

symmetrical lines

arranged as

a radiating pattern,

the cluster

a unit of signifiers.


Suspended delicately

 a drop of water ---

is it silver on a green thread?

 

The grey mass

turns swiftly into

a fleeting

figure

 

delightful

in

strangeness

 

and music—

Ariel!


The stony facades

hide aspirations

to soar high;

 

 

the raised hand

in the form of a

turret/spire

 

reaches out

to the blue vault

 

daubed with

blobs of white and gray!


A network

of

taut veins

 

thin lines

crisscross

 

the wan

visage, once

green;

 

fine strokes

vertical

horizontal

intersect;

 

marks

left by

an

unsparing

overlord---

Time!


sky

sea

 ---a Goya canvas?



In the heart 
of the concrete: 
liquid colours shimmer, 

the light 
adds 
soft 
streaks to 
the tender night! 

real? 
surreal? 
Or, 
magical? 

---all creations of the viewer/s.
