Thread: returned to the water

  1. #1

    returned to the water

    Returned to the water

    She came from the sea, one-eyed,
    beach-cast in a Nintendo world,
    that no longer cares for dolls,
    or the dignity of others unfurled.

    Her element-exposed limbs torn,
    by a mariner crazed with lust or hate,
    who, drunk off the coast of France,
    sealed her watery fate.

    But wait! the passing image-maker,
    with digital precision eyes the prize,
    and rearranges her manikin parts,
    to best show her saline demise.

    Image-sated, he casts her to the tide,
    The maiden now free of this new knave,
    floats briefly, before, Norse-like,
    sinking to her silent grave.

    Hi,
    As You know my native language is neither English nor German so maybe I am wrong if I shell say You that ,for me, that little beauty sound like Erlkonig by Goethe.

    Thank you, Radu. I thought it might be more interesting to have some words associated with posted images - either a simple poem, or some prose text. Anyone else want to try?

    Probably not, as I don't think I have the talent.

    But it's fantastic to see you here again, Rob. And, yes, the new avatar is interesting.

    Re: returned to the water

    On other forum I posted prose texts associated with my photo and titles of the images but nobody followed me.There,I post and now with texts, frames and titles although in my opinion the images must sustain themself.Although in English, my text are for my own memory telling me about that moment.About the shot the colour is good but I should want more negative space (a larger and empty space around it).
    All the best

    I enjoyed your picture and accompanying prose
    It adds story to image, most apropos

    There was a young lady from Aer Lingus.......perhaps not. I love the image though. Well spotted.

    You are a crazy person; but in an intelligent way. Seeing things strange but deliberately.
