Is There a Doorway

is there a doorway collage s

movement almost forming
arrested on the edge
just beyond vision and mind
is there a doorway

passage behind the cascade
disguised sounds louder than silence
abandoned in the voided depths
movement almost forming

the flight of an eagle
the eye’s periphery plays with thought
jumping to conclusions
arrested on the edge

private film tangled tresses
sidesteps floating rippling
abstracted performance
just beyond vision and mind

imagined doppelganger totem
kindred spirit animated
whispering the echo the question:
is there a doorway?

Jane Dougherty’s challenge this week was once again a painting and words
Cascade, tresses, eagle, abandon, rippling
but also a form, the cascade, another one that makes use of repetition rather than rhyme.

The silence is in the ears of the beholder.

    How do you do it?! Magical piece. Oh love the owl fading into the tree and I see an ocean wave to the left? Looking at a small screen but I just love this. Your work is way more wow to me than the painting that inspired it.

    Intriquing imagery and words, I say there is always a door way, sometimes we don’t always think to open it. Artist’s help make it easier. Thank you for your post today Kerfe, I just opened the door.
