Returning

Returning
The heart asks pleasure first
And then, excuse from pain-
And then, those little anodynes
That deaden suffering;

And then, to go to sleep;
And then, if it should be
The will of its Inquisitor,
The liberty to die.

- Emily Dickinson

... or perhaps something a little, er, more honeyed ... by the delectable Emily ...

Come slowly—Eden
Lips unused to Thee—
Bashful—sip thy Jessamines
As the fainting Bee—

Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums—
Counts his nectars—
Enters—and is lost in Balms.

Good :) that's the general idea! ... it is multi-layered and heavily photoshopped ... the simplicity-in-complexity works for me ... it is nothing specific, something intangible ... a feeling. The idea is about being 'drawn in' to a good place ... there are happy memories stirred into this one! ... Emily is one of my favourite poets, glad you love her too!

the window is open ...let's get wellcome by the yellow colours without thinking about the reason why...and then after a while, only after a while we may admit the yellow iris has got life's active colours leaving behind the red of auto burning and punishing passions....and yet, I'm even in contradiction with myself, as I do love passion , overwhelming passion and fire...so back to the beginning...
I wonder if you have understood a little part of my stammering words...

very much so ... a good reading, Christel! ... forever returning ... but which is inside and which outside? ... a door way ... entered, left, re-entered ... always ... returning.
