I’m combining prompts again for Eliot’s November Shadorma Challenge and Jane’s Month with Yeats. Here is today’s quotation:
“I would that we were, my beloved, white birds on the foam of the sea!”–W.B. Yeats
In a dream–
we flew like birds,
or stood amidst the sea foam,
time and physics paused
Lovely! That painting is exactly what I think of when I hear (or read) the words ‘sea foam’.
Thank you. That’s exactly what happened! 🙂
There are a few paintings that have become iconic in this corner of the blogosphere.
Yes, indeed. 😉
Love that last line particularly.
Thank you, Sarah!
My favorite painting! and the quote and your poem are perfect! (K)
Thank you, Kerfe. That painting just makes me so happy! 🙂
Yes, it has a special aura.
Excellent example how the sea inspires. 🙂
Thank you, Frank.
Prompt,poem and painting all fit well. Well done, Merril.
Thank you, Ken.
Very pretty. Speaking of birds, we finally had our turkey tonight. 😏
Thank you, Luanne.
I guess there’s a story to that? Or just marching to your own beat? 😉
Yeah, it’s also why I was exhausted last night making that post. Full turkey dinner yesterday evening. Because I bought such a big turkey (by accident) and then it took forever to thaw–a full 7 days!!!
That’s so funny, Luanne. So was everyone prepared to have dinner on Thursday, and then you just didn’t? My turkey took a bit longer to thaw than I expected it would, but it was fine for Thursday.
Luckily, “everyone” was just the gardener and me this year. The kids are all coming in December when we are having a party and inviting the new DIL’s family–Hanukkah and Christmas party.
Oh–you two must really like turkey then! 🙂
Um . . . not so much. But we will love it or hate it after our four gallon freezer bags are used up.
Too funny, Luanne. 🙂
Well done – most apt painting (which you may have used before)
Thank you, Derrick. I’ve used the painting more than once before, but it’s a favorite, and the image popped into my head as soon as I started writing. 🙂
Like a snapshot.
