Vikipedia: The Tree of Pain (The Dream)

 

…and when a thousand of my chaotic thoughts

became unfolded by the aroma of your blossoms

I came at night to hug your trembling trunk

to stroke your silky leaves

to drown my face into your fragrant petals…

 

the thorns of pain have pierced me in return

my blood was dripping from your leaves and flowers...

 

when I woke up all covered in cold sweat

I sighed ...ah, just a dream, a silly dream

and swept my forehead with the shaking hand

my hand was red

                       from blood...

A dangerous place to be Vik
vz-nostalgia: As the Russian saying goes, Chris, "those who are afraid of wolves shouldn't walk into the woods". smile

When the thousand thorns of the Tree of Pain
are lost in a sea of blood
its leaves and petals will stroke your forehead
and wipe clean your wet red hand
in the silkiness of first light blooms.
...a fragrant awakening.
vz-nostalgia: I guess this happens in another dream, Ms. Suzanne. smile

You have to make an effort to get out more, VZ...this starving young artist in his garret thing is starting to dominate...

A couple of Mac Cheeseburgers should fix you.

[grin]
vz-nostalgia: You'd rather see me as a 300lb Burger King than a Starving Artist, do you, Ray? smile

vz-nostalgia: Hahaha. There are plenty of starving photographers as well as architects nowadays, Louis. I'd moonlight as an exotic dancer.

I've heard they're paid very well, but I'm afraid I passed my prime. smile

Picking roses with a cutting tool is like giving pleasure to a woman wearing rubber gloves, Louis. If you are afraid to be pricked by a thorn, you better stay home, flipping through the worn out copy of a Playboy magazine. smile
I think it is green, right?
vz-nostalgia: It used to be, Ms. Chantal, but now it's red. smile
Do you like to dream? It's an uphill and sharp shot indeed.
vz-nostalgia: Dreams come whether we like them or not, Ms. Delia. smile Some of them are uphill dreams, while others downhill. smile

vz-nostalgia: Well, Chris might be right, but there is another Russian saying that goes like this: "He who doesn't risk never gets to drink champagne!". smile
Philine: "sometimes I woke up and was glad that the event I dreamt of didn't happen in reality!"
VZ: Other times, you spend the night dreaming of a little bird, thinking what an awesome dream it was, and then you notice a small feather on the corner of your pillow. smile
''... woke up all covered in cold sweat

...ah, just a dream, I sighed, a scary silly dream.''

Who spiked your drink Vic'?

One things for certain ... this image won't end up on the spike.

More thorns? Man, you really are a pain in the.... smile

I guess your next post will show the whole plant? smile
vz-nostalgia: ...the whole tree with me, hanging on the thorns? Is that what you want, Ti? smile

Vikipedia - A Wicked Wikipedia entry designed to be cleverly sarcastic yet display rapture at nature's minuscule beauty.
vz-nostalgia: That's a very precise description of Vikipedia, Sam. I wouldn't put it better myself. smile
good angle, you were mighty close.
vz-nostalgia: So close, I still carry scars on my body and soul, Rory. smile
I like this VZ..very nice.
vz-nostalgia: That's because you have good taste, Ron. smile
Great use of DOF and monochrome edition.
Thanks for visit and comment.
vz-nostalgia: There is no such thing as "great use of DOF", Pedro. The depth of field either is, or it is not. smile
I always look forward to viewing your photographs. Nice job.
vz-nostalgia: It is always good to see you on Nostalgia, Mai Hoto. smile
The Vikipedia is inspiring me to go hunt up some rose bushes with big thorns. I'll send you the hospital bill... smile
vz-nostalgia: Oh... Wait with the bill till the hew healthcare plan is approved by the Congress, Larry. Otherwise, I have to sell my house. The healthcare system is so screwed up here. Everyone tries to squeeze a buck out of a sick person in this country: the doctors, the insurance companies, the pharmaceutical industry, the lawyers... smile (through tears)

Beautiful images and words make a perfect harmony!
vz-nostalgia: You are so right, Carraol. The words and the images are fused together on Nostalgia. One can't separate them as they are the same thing just in a different form. smile
gripping poetry.
for some reason, this conjures images of the whip used on jesus before he got on the cross.
vz-nostalgia: Oh, Ms. Toun. That's a very powerful image you built in your mind, looking at this picture.

vz-nostalgia: Are you okay, Ms. Jamoula? Where do you see the Roman Catholic Church references (if that is what you had in mind) on Nostalgia? I don't recall a single one. smile
What Job do you refer to? I think I lost you here.
vz-nostalgia: Christ? Crosses? On Nostalgia? You puzzle me, Ms. Jamoula. smile I briefly flipped through the archive, thinking maybe I missed something. Couldn't find a single thing. smile
Regarding the Book of Job. I suppose one can ask "why me?", looking at the picture. smile

hmm... who is the 'masochist' now??
i found your picture and poem really passionating
smile
i wouldn't write anything like this but it really fills me when i read it
Help!!!..Freud!!!!
vz-nostalgia: There is not a shred of masochism in this, Ms. KA. Apparently, you misread either the picture or the writing. smile
Of course, you wouldn't write anything like this. To write something like this, one has to experience something like this. smile
It fills you with what, Ms. KA? (and don't appeal to Freud, he's no help to you in this). smile
nice picture and captivating poem to go with it

Absolutely beautiful, Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: smile Out of two hundred something photographs you picked this one to comment. smile Interesting.

While all your photographs are amazing, it was actually the poem that truly got my attention. I write poetry as well, and this poem inspired me.
vz-nostalgia: I usually don't divide what I do on Nostalgia into poetry and photography, Julie. Both are part of a whole to me, like yin and yang. They feed off each other, and one is not complete without the other. smile
