Unravelling

Escher's Prints.
Like strips of worn elastic I did stretch,
to make myself what others said I should,
until the fabric snapped and fell asunder
unravelled psyche's ground on which I stood.

There was the barest image left to see,
through empty strands of nothingness and fear,
but substance and true form was rent apart;
with nothing left of what I knew as me.

  2. This is one of my favourites of Escher's images. Love the last two lines, Ros.

  3. Ros I love yours, and in a way it is complementary to my slight bit of humour. I should like to see them together.

  4. A mask within a mask within a mask...And still we listen to other, hanging on their every word, while trying to find our own voices.
