~ A woman in here ~

Originally uploaded by Jill and Jason

Open my door
A chipped old door
In faded frosty green
Made in wood
Some how chipped in time
Still there is a woman in here
In her chiffon black veil
Most of her face is veiled
You think she is suppressed in veil
She is a door that veils a home
There is a woman in here
Who knows if she has blood in her veins?
That flow with emotions
A tamed sea of sensation
You will never know if the water is deep
Till you dip in its waters
Or is she trapped in a chipped old door
But if you stare long enough in her eyes
You will no doubt find:
A WOMAN in here

Your poem is beautiful. Thank you for connecting it to our picture in such a wonderful way. Your writing gives the picture a new and animated dimension and it is amazing how together they have a life that is missed individually. In general, your project connecting poems with pictures on Flickr (all in a blog format!) is a really interesting example of the synergies of digital art.

Thank you for sharing your work with us...

Poem/photo combo really works here. Reminds me of the old doors I'd see at tombs in the cemetery of my hometown. That was really the best place around town to see sculpture and other art objects!

Yes, Nasra ... beneath many a veil we see the true self. Self must not be surpressed and sadly it happens.
