Zyrynometry: Twelve Empty Steps

 

...daylight is dead

a beam of lonely moonlight

hunts shadows on the empty steps

the night is here...

...dancing shadows
in the silvery beam
with sweet enticement
hunting one dream...
vz-nostalgia: ...the dream of melted chocolate and dripping honey... smile

A toothed wheel...are we caught in a giant clockwork..."tick" night..."tock" day...
vz-nostalgia: :
...a giant clockwork I am
monstrous Moloch to whom
you sacrifice your hours and days...
...and one by one,
the light of the moon tippy toes
her way down the empty steps
revealing behind the shadows
what was always there...
vz-nostalgia: :
…she descends down the empty steps
on the ray of moonlight
leaving behind the shadows of her broken hopes
she descends on the wings of Second Life he built for her
she’s a moonchild…

It's the thirteenth one that will finish you Vik...
vz-nostalgia: I've been through so many bad steps in my life, Chris, I doubt this one would be able to put a cross on me. smile
I like the shapes and the lighting Viktor. This picture simply appeals to me smile
vz-nostalgia: There is nothing wrong with what you said, Bill. smile

I thought it was some great curved modernist architecture from the thumbnail. By giving this an off-kilter viewpoint you have transformed something quite mundane into a surreal landscape.
vz-nostalgia: There is a thin line between the real and the surreal, Ms. Ingrid. The trick is to feel it strong enough to use in your advantage. smile
Ooh Victor, this makes me shiver! Reminds me of the poem I wrote to accompany my photograph of the moon.

vz-nostalgia: Oh, I remember that poem, Ms. Roz. It gave me shivers too. smile
I've rotated my laptop through a full three hundred and sixty degrees and still find the image enigmatic bizarre and yet intriguing ... I like the unknown feel that is created.

vz-nostalgia: Apparently, you are of an adventurous type, Richard. Most people usually are afraid and stay away from the unknown. smile

Halfway down the stairs
is a stair
where i sit.
there isn't any
other stair
quite like
it.
i'm not at the bottom,
i'm not at the top;
so this is the stair
where I always stop.

Halfway up the stairs
Isn't up
And it isn't down.
It isn't in the nursery,
It isn't in town.
And all sorts of funny thoughts
Run round my head.
It isn't really
Anywhere!
It's somewhere else
Instead!
vz-nostalgia: First, let me say that when i read this, I was totally knocked off with your first ever poem on Nostalgia, Ms. Scarlet. But then I googled it and learned that this was written by a brilliant English autor A.A. Milne, the father of Winnie-The-Pooh. I love teh poem, just wish you'd give a courtesy credit to Mr. Minlne.
At the dead of dark
And shadows appear
Moonlight whispers
Do not fear
I caress the steps
To light your way
Until dawn breaks
With warm sun rays smile
vz-nostalgia: Ah, what a flow of words and a brilliant thought, Ms. Linda. Once more you don't cease to amaze me. smile

Or, you are just drunk lying on the sidewalk thinking....,"Damn, look at all those stairs!" smile
vz-nostalgia: smile Yep. Drunk with the aroma of the night air pregnant with the blossoming magnolias, when every breath makes your head to spin and leaves you with a feeling of sweet nostalgia deep inside. smile

It's hardly surprising they're empty - they're upside down, people would fall off!
vz-nostalgia: A pragmatic side of you has spoken, Ms. Ellie. Now let's hear what the right half of your brain says, the artistic, emotional side of you. smile

"...twelve steps to you
eleven, and I am yours
ten more to glory
nine more to curl...

eight left to grab you
seven...getting there
six...sounds of passion
five...I can't wait...

four steps to reach you
three moves and shakes
two, melting shadows...
one... climb again..." K.A.

nobody can deny you are an architect mr VZ...but I think there are only eleven steps grin
vz-nostalgia: I see you are a master of building an excitement, Ms. KA. smile
"one... climb again..." Oh my... God was very generous to you, Ms. KA. Many women can't climb even once. smile

KA: I think there are only eleven steps
VZ: Are you saying I'm good at zyrynometry, but suck at zyrythmetics, Ms. KA? smile

Mathematics
an in-exact science.
Depending on
state of mind
there could be eleven;
make the twelfth
a stumbling surprise
and the thirteenth
a discovery under 'ha'
of Shutterchance.

'The way is not clear' - Louis

You gave the thirteenth a miss as a tribute to American architectural values and beliefs? tongue
vz-nostalgia: smile There is nothing certain in zyrythmetics, Louis. Things are fluid, come in and out, get blurry and sharp again, "depending on the state of mind". smile To tell the truth, the whole Nostalgia is an in-exact science. smile

as the beasts jaws begin to close, gasp your last breath and embrace your foe.

For tonight is just like any other night, a night without arms around to protect you.

vz-nostalgia: The White Knight, the last hope of tortured souls, crossed his sword of moonlight with the beast of night.
strange mecanic!
vz-nostalgia: The strange world of Nostalgia mechanics, jojo. smile
I like the way you saw these steps. You made it look like a leaf with strings. Clever abstract look.
vz-nostalgia: A leaf with strings? That might be the musical instrument that fairies and cicadas play. I hear them all night long through the open window in my bedroom. smile
You got me standing on my head, trying to work it out.
vz-nostalgia: Well, consider this a free yoga lesson, Nig. smile
"A headstand can reduce facial wrinkles, and if practiced regularly, is a natural 'face-lift'. This is because it reverses the effects of gravity and allows the skin to rest in the other direction" (quoted from somewhere on teh web).
I guess I need to post stuff like this more often. smile

I have to start again reading by my poor English those comments and exchanging words with Ms.KA smile)
Skilfully created image as so many of your photos are as I saw.
It`s enjoyable to look at them.
vz-nostalgia: Yes, Ms. KA got carried away a bit. smile From time to time it happens with folks who visit Nostalgia, and I find it delightful. Hope you'll do the same one day, Ms. Sisi.

Oh heck Viktor, you're not expecting a proper critique are you?
