|Puddle, by M.C. Escher, from wikipaintings.org|
On the weekend, Kerry had us consider the work of Dutch surrealist M.C. Escher at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads. She included a few of his paintings, and provided a link to more. I chose one for ekphrasis at the Sunday Mini-Challenge, posted another because it's a picture of a place we'll visit soon, and today I'm posting a third Escher work and the little poem it inspired for Open Link Monday at Real Toads.
And now for something really wonderful: Kerry has invited me to present a challenge or two for the members and contributors to Real Toads. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Maybe soon, maybe not. There's still that place in the second Escher picture I posted, and we'll be there before we know it.
