Portal of Rock and Stone

Looking out:
Stares through to beyond
field, hill, history
of possibility, hope
breaking past the confines
of a life, of lives.

Looking in:
Peers through sunlight into
mind, heart soul
through ruined lens
of wood and rock
to interior rooms,
now grass-carpeted.

Looking at:
Observes the painting
displayed on a wall of light
designed, imagined
as future, as past
the eye’s landscape
beckoning, retreating.

Inventive, interesting structure... amazing the perceptual shifts in language that occur when something as slight as a 2 or three letter preposition drastically alters meaning, in addition to effecting a reader's response and an observer's perceptions in explaining "art."

You captured the important angles. Great pounding imagery again.

Louise Gallagher said...

I like how your eye takes us out, and in and to the observer within.

Very nice.

Maureen said...

I like how you've created three frames of reference for a visually very interesting image and then imagined what the eye might see through each one.

Maude Lynn said...

I really like the structure of this.

You've taken the process of photography from the camera into a trip to the self. Like the way you've turned it into looking out at Tge shot so to speak giving a very human perspective. Glynn, this was very special x

I like the different perspectives ...

Glynn, you always have a cool way of looking at things and translating into poetry.

Carmela-J said...

Great take - I love the sense of perspective that you've created here. With each change of view I feel like I'm moving to see what you see.

Well constructed as always, but the thoughts and words are haunting as well..."...the painting
displayed on a wall of light..." A fine line in a harmonious frame itself.
