Mag 122, 6/17/12, Breaking Through

                                                             *Puddle*, 1952, M. C. Escher

At first glance it was as if
this were fabric- a carpet perhaps,
worn straight through into another dimension.

The skies eyes of a new world!
And then she pulled away a little,
 a step or two back.

 There would be no tire marks in fabric-
and yet with a second quick look
It is cut away like cheese that has been nibbled on!

She sat down on the  porch swing behind her
and just stared at the tree tops and sky
not caring for the moment

whether it was from this world
or the one beyond.

I too, felt the 'other world' aspect if the 'hole' in the image...You caught it perfectly.

The style of this artist is show two sides of the world or image, while touching on the elements of nature ~

It looks like cheese nibbled on ~ Nice imaginative take ~

nice...a bit of magic...enthralling enough that it matters not which world it came from...smiles...like the gnawed at edges...that is a cool touch..

"The skies eyes of a new world..."

Imagination is packed with pictures of unnumbered world. I LIKE how you relate this one...all the way to not caring--this one or another one.

Izzy, you rang the bell again with this Magpie!

a very cool surreal moment, those
are so awesome when we see something in a completely different
way - like being privy to another dimension. thank you.
