nice...love the texture you added...untold stories just waiting to happen...or not...time will tell...
I enjoyed the quote, and those are great lines about the untold story that may materialise, 'or not'
He was a fascinating dude. I think you captured him as well as his image.
A ghostly apparition indeed. Your poetry made him real...
Oh I love his quote....and what you did with the magpie image good job
I agree with Suz's comment. :)
What a wonderful poem! And I have always loved the self-portrait of Andy Wyeth, son of Andrew Wyeth.
He gives me chills, and I like it...so well done,and I also like the reversed color very much.
Nice take on the Photo...Nice magpie!JJRod'z
I have an antiqued mirror of my grandmothers ... I will think of it a bit as a custodian now... :)
Love the mirror view, how clever. Really enjoyed your work.
I really like this poem, through all of the lines, yet 'Antiquated mirror, custodian of truthReveals me as ...' stands out so much for me. Love the antiquated mirror image.
The suspense - 'To show, or not to show?! LOL. Clever use of the negative, too.
Leave us with a question - good idea...
Do you mean to say my mirror is a 'custodian of truth'? Damn!Sneaky use of the negative image in a witty write!
Absolutely love this! It speaks to the artist, to be sure.
A fine piece indeed, Helen. Here's hoping he chooses 'not'!
Beautifully complements the image, Helen, and your poem echoes well Wyeth's sentiments as revealed byt the initial quote...
Helen love the way you captured this one. :-)
Oh, this is wonderful. His words are really interesting, too.
"Amid wintry darkness and gloomHe concocts countless scenarios"Leaving so much to the imagination. I tend to come here first because I know there will always be a poem to savour and once again I'm not disappointed.
'Waiting for the right timeTo materialiseOr not' . . . to have a choice is not something I would have expected:-)
What is it about ghosts and mirrors? Beautiful write...
Never once thought of a mirror--brilliant. Love the textures you gave this, and the way it leaves one thinking. Thank you.
very well polished words.love it.
