Three Muses - Doors

I've always been fascinated by abandoned structures that nature is taking back for Her own. They leave me wondering who passed that way, what their life was all about, and where they went. So, when I saw Marie's challenge, I knew what I wanted to do. I've added an original poem. Thank you for looking!

  9. Holy moly woman! You are as good a writer as you are an incredible artist and visionary. I fully expected to see some old famous poet's name below the poem, which I read first, and the name didn't click. Then I read your post (I didn't know your last name). I am floored! But that sounds bad, like I didn't think you had it in you to write such a beautiful thing. I don't mean that, I am not surprised but very very impressed. So, the whole piece is brilliant and gorgeous beyond words I have the ability to write!

  13. Absolutely beautiful picture, Bev, and your poem is the icing on the cake. I love the soft greens and the rustic door with the mysterious steps on the other side. There are lots of stories waiting to be told through that portal.

  19. Stunning, all the different layers really give it a mysterious feel. I so know what you mean about these abandoned places that nature is claiming back. If only we could look through the veils of time...
    The poem is great and really suits the piece.

  22. I like your poem every bit as much as your digital art... love all those layers! I have a great love of ruins, which isn't quite the same, is it? I think I'd like to be an archaeologist in the next life... always providing there is one!!

  27. Bev, I had to do a double take on the poem! At first I wondered how you managed to find a poem that conveyed exactly what you were trying to say! Duh! It's really wonderful and has such universal appeal! The abandoned steps and doorway leave one feeling nostalgic. Love the way you have nature beautifully and gracefully taking over the scene!
