My Friday Image: Juniper Artland Sculpture, Firmament by Anthony Gormley

   Firmament by Antony Gormley Exposure 2010   This litte poetic ditty was inspired by this wonderful sculpture which I had the pleasure of seeing in all its splendour at Juniper Artland, Wilkieston, Scotland. You may remember that I mentioned this wonderful inspiring Artland before in a much earlier blog post, on the 15th of June 2014. The Puzzle of Unforgiving Turf Black space, a jigsaw of blue, confusing skies. A giant piece of white mystifying lies, Still we twist,  baffle,  and turn, While blackened steel pieces confuse and burn. My fingers decipher thoughts, raw and aching, Questioning layers of paint work mercilessly flaking, I  turn to discern  the last bewildering step, I piece the puzzle, too late, the enigma lies cold and wet. I trip, and fall, unravel, flip an ankle, In scattered pieces I confusingly entangle, But there’s no bewildering cuddle, Just a gap, no cushion, in air’s baffling puzzle. A pocket of relentless sky and bemused clouds, Blankets the confused sounds, As I fall in pieces, scattering, to the perplexed earth, Triumph hitting the newly solved, but, oh so, unforgiving turf!   © Marjorie Mallon 2015 – aka, Kyrosmagica. Words, and Photo, good or bad, are my very own! That was such fun!!!! Love poetry, just wish I was better at writing poems. Still, it’s nice to try. Please, if there any poets out there reading this, do give me feedback, I’m looking to improve 🙂 Links: https://www.jupiterartland.org/ http://www.antonygormley.com/ Unauthorized use and/or duplication of all copyrighted material in this blog without permission from this blog’s author is strictly prohibited.

My Friday Winter Images

A  yellow leaf sitting on a bed of sparkling snow. Sometimes the most beautiful images are just so simple. It’s the Fifth of December who could possibly believe it, where does time go? I’m sure Father Christmas leaps into the year earlier every winter and steals a bit of time so that he can get on with his job. Cheeky fellow! […]

A bit of fun for Friday!

I found an awesome link on Lorraine Loveit’s blog. It’s a quiz you can take to find out what classic novel describes your life 😀 I got Bram Stoker’s, Dracula… Not entirely sure what that says about me! ‘Pensive and brooding with a penchant for solitary confinement, your fantastic story unfolded within the pages of Bram Stoker’s gothic classic, DRACULA. Others mistake you for ‘unhappy’ on a regular basis, but simply do not understand that you are different – and that is completely okay. You tend to shun everything else around you as you immerse yourself with whatever captivates your mind – which leads to sacrifices but ultimately ends in incredible results. Your inner workings are as fascinating as your outer layers, a true rarity.’ Why not have a go and post what you got in the comments? http://www.playbuzz.com/jonb10/what-classic-novel-describes-your-life *Have a great weekend everyone!
