Interpolated (Thursday Doors)

photo by wheat salt wine oil

The day is empty
like this house—tentative, flat,
merged with the landscape.

Each layer resides
inside its own dimension–
unfinished, ajar.

Spinning in circles,
a surface with no inside–
an imprint of thought.

A moment’s whimsy–
not really a door at all–
more like a portal—

A passageway to somewhere
in the middle of between

My final entry to the Thursday Doors May Writing Challenge, a haiku sonnet, uses a photo from Wheat Salt Wine Oil as inspiration. The collage is another one of mine from my youth.

Next week, back to my own doors.

    Nicely done poetry. I love the notion of “an imprint of thought” Nothing is every really forgotten just sometimes the recollection of thought is no always spot on .

    That’s a lovely poem, and the artwork is the perfect accompaniment. I loved “somewhere
    in the middle of between” because the idea of Between is magical to me. Hugs.

    “In the middle of between” … exactly how it feels to be in this world more and more.

    I am so glad someone tackled that door photo. It seemed that there had to be a way to work with it, and you did a wonderful job. I also like your collage very much. You have some concepts which are perfect for that “door” – my favorite is “a surface with no inside.”

    Thanks for adding this to the offerings.

    I can’t decide if your words are exactly approximate or approximately exact, but they are remarkably crafted for this image. Your description is so very imaginative!

    Not really a door at all – a portal. I would say! 😍

    I love those lines. The hay bale has such a creepy feel to it that you captured well, Kerfe. A fascinating prompt and poem.

    creative imagery for this humble hay bale…I liked the layering reference, spinning in circles…and seeing it as a portal. thanks for choosing this photo.
