Featured in IMAGE WRITING (2/24) GROUP. October 17th, 2010

The essence of th work is easy to guess. A blending composition of a simplicity that is looking for the emotion. Photoshop, and the objects of life having been taken myself. The only items that are new are the background of an intense bleu gradient and the butterflies that are simple and dancing strokes of a photosphop brush by defect.

The world is dissolving
in perfect colours.
Foam of thoughts,
cleaning the soul’s sadness.

There is no room,
such is the tightness of Heaven,
when the light rejects the shadows,
as a bad digested food.
The butterflies do not sing,
but they are flapping their wings,
like the eyelids…
overflowed with tears.
Then I knew.. that I was feeling like naked,
before that profussion of happiness..
playing the Fool, eternal meeting,
with the freedom long forgotten.

Some of them are caressing the balloons…
and they sound like crickets,
such primitive laughings of the night summer.
“Buy me one…. please…mom!
do not let them fly away..
without my choosing..
It…. powering my fingers..
with the pulling of its ascending force”.
The Fools… today..
are the joy’s sellers…
and smile to my unreasoning blue mood.

“Come on!……
There is not time to loose…”
They cried out to me.
“Though.. we master them,
but just for us..
not for you.”
Sorry…jolly tempters…
I love your faces… gait and clothing.
But I’d rather embrace
the dark lapis-lazuli
that makes my Life shine…
even more.
And they faded away…
suddenly dragged and lifted…
to the highest cloud
of misty uncertainties.

    Laughter is the best medicine of all Rosa…thank you for this healing and colorful expression of JOY ♥ ♥ ♥

  • There is laughter, yes… but if you read the poem can see that the soul is searching for something else, too, though loving the image with intensity.
    Thank you so much, Tammy.

    Un imagen maravilloso! Imagino que las niñas estan volando entre los globos. Los colores brillantes y las mariposas bailando le tan un toque mas de fantasia. Me encanta!

  • Gracias Richard…es una fantasía pero solamente en parte Las niñas son reales… las personitas de los globos, son los padres de la niña de la izquierda Y son amigos… me los encontré en el desfile de Carnaval y sus trajes me parecieron lo más maravilloso que habia visto. Me gusta el carnaval de los Locos, menos que el de las Dragqueens o samberas, que es lo que ahora se lleva.
    Un abrazo, Richard Me alegro que te alegre el día aunque sea un poquito anacrónico.

    This is a unique and beautiful way to describe whimsy and lightheartedness and joy for joy’s sake. A wonderful, colourful image and the poem is so poignant. I am thoroughly cheered up. :0) Song

  • Thanks a lot for your company and your comment….yes… they are having their joy…and I the joy of being a witness somehow feel the contagious emanation from them…and yet, remain attached to my own bit od melancholy, where the white butterflies are a balsam coming from my soul.
    A hug for you
