Illusion


Dali's painting

the bed, that is not my chambers
lies in wait
the room, that is not my sanctuary
stands still in time
the window, that does not look out
blocks out the view
the light, from the moon above
hovers within
the chequered floor, in the imaginary room
my only reality

the man, who is not my lover
where is he

  1. How expressive and striking is your illusion, I love the way you pair the aspects until you reach the conclusion.

  3. Love the poem..."the room that is not my sanctuary".........then I had a "whoa!" moment, when I saw, with a shift of the eye, the man's face on the left. Cool!

  5. Wonderful take on such an abstract piece... I have always like Dahli's imaginations, but you have put it to words so well.

  8. Love the flow. Like the way you used elements of the painting to create an entirely new view.
