Self Portrait #20b (after Klee)

sp 20b klee collage s

Lune shining through me
like a galaxy
that flies

Wings I can not see
vibrate suddenly
surprise

Caught invisibly
beyond memory
tides rise

This self-portrait uses the same Klee painting for a reference as my last one, but I have done it in collage, as I said I hope to do.  I’ve taken more liberties this time as well.  The round face reminded me of the moon, and that was my inspiration for my choice of collage papers.

The poem uses the lai form, which I saw on dVerse in early June, but did not have time to attempt then.

It’s a New Moon today…start something!

    I love this collage. The figure is resplendent–the moon shining through her–and the poem, flying galaxies and time. . .Wonderful!

    Beautiful collage Kerfe and perfect poetry pairing as always. I love the shapes in your image- something so right about them all- like the golden ratio or something…

    The poem was unexpected with your choice of words and yet flowed so naturally – and your collage works so well with your language art.
