The Madness of doors.
The talent Geoff LePard posted about an exhibition he visited at Tate Modern. The exhibition was of the work of Dorothea Tanning. I was so taken by what Geoff had to say about his visit not only the artwork but also an over heard conversation in the cafe. You can read the post here. The Surreal in the Here and Now.
Below is one of Dorothea’s paintings it really took my eye and I had to write a mirror Etheree about it. This is just my interpretation, I am probably well off of the mark. I don’t care because it spoke to me. So thanks to Geoff we have.
The madness of doors.
I am mad
This demon here
Knows better than that
I just gave birth to it
Don’t dare look at me like that
Mad, no I have opened the doors
Madness lies in closed doors, teathered souls
Clawing at the wood screaming to be free.
Don’t approach, this fruit of my womb may bite.
If you disturb it, it will take flight
Madness lies that way you must know
I’ll not take your food or drink
It will sully my milk
My child needs to feed
To sate it’s greed
I know I
The painting is by Dorothea Tanning. It is called Birthday, 1942, Oil on canvas.
I wrote about a birth before I found out it was actually called Birthday.

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge. Global & Warming.
This is part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday.
Colleen Chesebro is on Sabbatical, moving house for her health.. and that’s the truth.
Colleen said: “So, I’m asking my regular poetry challenge participants to keep writing a weekly poem until I get back. (No submission forms) Feel free to link to this post, or not, whatever works best for you. Choose your own words and keep using the syllabic forms: Haiku, Senryu, Haiga, Tanka, Haibun, Cinquain, Etheree, Nonet, and Shadorma. Choose your own words and just have fun. I’ll stop in and comment when I can.”
The two words I have chosen to use synonymously are Global and Warming.
Parched planet syndrome
Polar caps diminishing
All life extinguished
Mother Nature bows her head
Weeps for a planet that’s dead.
