Metamorphoses



Apollo and Daphne by Gianlorenzo Bernini

A soaring drowsiness possessed her; growing
In earth she stood, white thighs embraced by climbing
Bark, her white arms branches, her fair head swaying
In a cloud of leaves; all that was Daphne bowed
In the stirring of the wind, the glittering green
Leaf twined within her hair and she was laurel.


Ovid's Metamorphoses, trans. Horace Gregory

Broken Pieces of Yesterday, by Shawn Stucky

I'm glad you like it! This kind of art obsesses me. I wonder what Freud would have to say about that...
