Dream 051113

Elegant robe
softly falls
from shoulders
on a balcony
by ruddy rows
of new-plowed crops.
Raindrops
dance down
window panes,
as Sparrow
sips nectar
from the hollow
above her collarbone.
She has no voice
when he calls for her
from the other side
of dreams.

Poem and digital collage by Jen Payne. Image of nude borrowed from Back of a Nude, by William Merritt Chase, 1888.

  1. what a lovely redoux of an image, what a delightful pairing of vision and verbiage… when you say “digital collage” – does that mean it was created entirely on the computer, or that you did it on paper and scanned it in to add the wings and the droplets? it’s very earthy and yet, in a way, so delicate!
