Garden’s Dream

 

A garden’s dream
where the artist
grows
her
models.

 

 

I saw the dancing flowers swirl in place
and heard the songs they sang to catch my eye,
so I in silence stood and watched their face.

 

 

In large square
or long rectangles,
her canvas recreates
the design of a garden,
its embroidery,
its flowers
seen from
nearby
and afar

 

 

In the course
of seasons,
in the shadow
and the light.

 

The world of Claire Basler

  2. Beautiful! Thanks for introducing me to Claire Basler’s art. I look forward to seeing more of it.
