Emergence, C Exit

House, by Anna Ancher

(a shadorma)

Even the
floorboards say go for
-ward, open
door waits, gapes.
But see, much light is cast right;
small windows frame truth.

Visual prompt offered at Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts.

    This is my favourite of the paintings. I love looking at it.
    I like your counterpoint of the door and window possibilities, the question set up, the what happens, left to us.

  3. Ooo…I was especially taken with the length of lines drawing one forward in the floor boards too, De!! I really like what you’ve done with light and truth framing them like this!! Excellent tryout my friend!!

    I picked “van Gogh’s Diner!” Smiles to you!!

    Thanks, all. It’s funny how a painting just starts to speak to you, if you stare at it long enough. At first I was going to choose one of the others, but I LOVE doors, and those floorboards flowing outward just wouldn’t shut up. 😉

    I like what you did with this painting, De. “Small windows frame truth” is wonderful….sometimes the focus is clearer in small windows than in large!

    I like very much your impression of an impression – and quite right to go where the poem/picture takes you.

    Love your title and the pondering of this painting!
