the vivid tulips

"...nobody watched me before, now i am watched.
the tulips turn to me, and the window behind me
where once a day the light slowly widens and slowly thins
and i see myself, flat, ridiculous, a cut-paper shadow
between the eye of the sun and the eyes of the tulips,
and i have no face, i have wanted to efface myself.
the vivid tulips eat my oxygen..."

  1. Lovely colours, the dancing tulips are definately a stark contrast to the poem they represent. I had not heard of Sylvia Plath before, thanks for the intro

  2. Beth, your tulip dancers are fantastic! What a great idea, and what a beautiful work of art. And I love the poem you have submitted. Thank you!

  3. What a fun image you have created, lovely muted colours.
