The Sphinx

In a dim corner of my room for longer than
my fancy thinks
A beautiful and silent Sphinx has watched me
through the shifting gloom.

Inviolate and immobile she does not rise she
does not stir
For silver moons are naught to her and naught
to her the suns that reel.

The Shinx, Oscar Wilde

    Such a powerful image. It’s a beautiful sculpture, but if you don’t mind me saying, it seems less significant somehow with you beside it.

    You take such incredible photos!! I love the poem as the lead in to the photo. And the photo, boy do I love the photo. Your pose, the shadow, the bright leaves on the trees, all of it. Love!
