Garden of Earthly Delights No. 3


"Within the shadow of the ship I watched their rich attire:
Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,
They coiled and swam; and every track
Was a flash of golden fire."


Metamorphosis No. 2 "The Photographer"

Life percolates in places once dead.
A finger clicks the shutter
That freezes the
Shell's cracking,
Web's spinning,
Tunnel's buzzing and
Hopes by freezing to make things thrive?

Wonders if his still animation
Reflects only the narrow casement where
Decay piles high,
Or if it is singed by the genial heat
Of dreams and regrets
And loves and hates burning still in
Some eternal angst.

Hi Ted! Incredible! It looks like the «Temptation of St Anthony» by Bosch...

Blogtrotter Two managed to get inside a cave and take pictures there; enjoy the mites and tites and have a great week!
