a scene from the distance between us

INTRO ; Arie



you were


without date




the knotty patch

in your mouth


became  a sky

tied to a skeleton


a little impenetrable


like an artificial nail

circling a lily

there is so many constrast here, the delicate, the strong, the soft, the hard. The way of life and humanity or love and relationships. Reality. Well done my talented daughters. xxx

The imagery is strong.
The feelings which prompted this give me shivers.
Great work.

Haunting images bespeaking "distance between" indeed!
