This post is a salute to Ashley’s blog , Syncopated Eyeball; the blog tag line is Creepy Spooky Lovely Nice. The shots are all back stage scenes of the Elliot Lake’s Roundabout Puppeteers. The first three shots were from this year’s production, while the Ghostly Groot-Tree was from last year. The second shot was taken by my son Alex and the last shot was taken by Cora Richer. I processed the compositions using a Gothic-Zombie effect.
Screen Shot Girl !
Cephalization made whole –
in his company,……
the lady contemplates her image,
and reads carefully.
I reached into the closet searching for more boxes of Kleenex-tissues and came up empty, but not empty-handed. A face stared back at me, one of Elizabeth’s puppet creations. There are many here and about to unexpectedly meet ( Daguerre Upon the Stair ) , between those from her art student days, her examples for her drama and art students and, now more recently, puppets, masks and costumes for her community theatre group Elliot Lake Roundabout Exceptional Puppeteers .
As I have said in previous posts, our home has, at times, become a surreal cacophony of art and found objects through which scamper cats and a curious dog, while the lizards watch with a zen-like wisdom.
shadow ghost-face smile
as glass eyes watch knowingly –
a cupboard recluse
has friends in hidden corners,
whispering laughter reclines.
