Zyryality: The Leaves Of Past

 

...elusive guardians of morning silence

the secret order dervishes of longing

whirling in the fragrance of the garden air

sweeping off the petals of the crushed illusions

slivers of the innocence of the forbidden journeys

with the soft fabric of their gowns

into the leaves of Past...

 

I posted a few enlarged details of the photograph on the Nostalgia Facebook  HERE

This is seriously magical, Viktor. Oh my God! I'm just stunned. I'll be back! smile
vz-nostalgia: I see you did come back for more magic, Ms. Suzanne. smile

There's an aggressive countenance on those winged whirling dervishes, VZ...methinks they have misread the intentions of their visitors.
vz-nostalgia: and seems to me, in turn, you're the one who misread my intentions, Ray. smile There is not a shred of aggressiveness in this work.
a fairy tale scenery - very good image
vz-nostalgia: If it's a fairy tale, it's not a standard one, Yiannis, because teh standard ones always have a happy ending.

They are old and wrinkled and ready to follow the path of the of wizened leaves on the journey that is no longer forbidden, but one thing is for sure, they are leaving looking like angels as pretty as the day they arrived. smile
vz-nostalgia: Are you saying when they arrived they already were old and wrinkled, Ms. Linda? smile

Dervishes of longing? You are right, looks like two sets of ovaries having a ball. Mmmm, the english language is sometimes quite frightening smile
vz-nostalgia: Honestly, I have no idea what you are talking about, Louis. But looking at you and Ray, I think I understand where the roots of the feminist movement came from. smile

They rose below the stars and the moon
and danced their slow dance
to the sway of a sound
that broke their hearts
and wet their eyelids
and soaked their cheeks
until they tasted the saltiness
of a sorrow so deep
that their rising felt like their falling
as they danced their slow dance
to the sound of a crushing moan
that shook the walls
and shattered the windows
in the 'fragrant garden air'....
vz-nostalgia: In your little poem, Ms. Suzanne, you took teh best from both worlds: of Rumi and Nostalgia, I mixed them both together in the blender of your mind. smile Fascinating. So much so, I have a feeling you have experienced the whirling dance yourself. smile
Viktor this is very very good.
vz-nostalgia: Glad you stopped by, Michael. Took me 6 months from teh birth of the idea to the final product. smile
Very nice!
vz-nostalgia: Hard to disagree with you, Taylor. And I won't. smile
An image as sweet as nectar - not sugary sweet but a delicious feast for the eyes.
vz-nostalgia: Oh, you know well, Ms. Pixie, I can't stand anything sugary sweet: neither words, nor music, nor pictures... smile But nectar is a totally different matter. Sugar makes us fat, while nectar nourishes our imagination. smile

vz-nostalgia: and seems to me, in turn, you're the one who misread my intentions, Ray. There is not a shred of aggressiveness in this work.

Ray: This is entirely possible, VZ, and I accept your assertion that you are a perfect artist and I am a flawed observer.

I have this problem occasionally when I am asked by my Boy to interpret his drawings...for example, he recently drew a picture of an Angel visiting Jesus, and I thought it was a very nice image of a Ground Controller directing a Jumbo Jet to its airport dock.

Also...Michelangelo's Mona Lisa...I have heard her expression described as adolescent wonderment and as seductive temptress.
vz-nostalgia: smile There is no such thing as "perfect artist", Ray, as well as "perfect art". What's perfect for one quite often is flawed for the other. smile

Nice, very nice composition. Like a delicate baroque paiting.
vz-nostalgia: Well, true, I was inspired by old masters. And then made it pregnant with the aesthetics of surrealism. smile
Good to see you back on Nostalgia, Ms. Olga.
I keep returning to this post... this photo.
It captivates me... and I know why.
I'm not telling... ... ...
vz-nostalgia: I trust you have good reasons for not telling, Ms. Jacquelyn. smile
la danza della vita.
vz-nostalgia: What once was a dance of life in teh garden of happiness now is a dance of the crashed illusions in the leaves of past.
they look like angels with no faces to me....beautiful
vz-nostalgia: They look like angels because they are, Ms. Luba (with faces or not). smile
