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.
