I hear a jingling sound,
and cower under the shadows of that tower
why, you ask?
I shake my head at the clouds
dark, ominous, intimidating
the tower seems harmless
I slowly climb to top
the city unfolds
(error in my judgement about the tower)
I now know my mistake.
with half a smile
I watch two bears fighting in the clouds
the trees sway in the drama
their laughter reaching the sky
tower stands tall vindicated,
and enfolds me in its embracing warmth
"when do I realize that
I have been totally fenced?"
This painting is from 1596-1600. Yet seems very modern, as if from the present period. El Greco must have been a visionary.....
Thanks Poetry Jam, for making me explore various forms pf arts...
