Magpie Tales ~ Send in the clowns!



Todays inspiration comes from a fabulous painting by Marc Chagall!

Marc Chagall


Faces

She sat alone
with the image in the mirror
Alone
applying her makeup by rout

She sat alone
with the image in the mirror.
Wondering
why the makeup wouldn't adhere.
 
She sat alone
with the image in the mirror
Observing
The streaks that did appear.

She sat alone
with the image in the mirror
Weeping
watching her make up smear.

She sat alone
with the image in the mirror 
Knowing
Her image would disappear.


She sat alone
with the image in the mirror.
Watching
The transformation begin.

She sat alone
with the image in the mirror.
Admiring
The image that did appear.


I played with the Chagall just a bit. Just for fun! To speak of the image that sat alone.

  1. this is rather haunting...the repetition makes it so, always the reminder she is alone...and how the image in the mirror affects her...nicely done sue ann

  2. Love your variation - what a pity we don't live close enough to share a session of arty-playing with the Mag pics! ♥

    We might even produce a few mirror images. LOL

  3. I love the rhythm you have created through your repetitions, which also gives the poem an existential point of view. This is a very innovative approach to the subject. Wonderfully composed, SueAnn. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Haunting is a good descriptor for this. And your choice of music and the image manipulating go along with it so well. And, I thought of the old 'Send in the Clowns' too.
