Mayday Icarus

skilful handy-man,
makes – out of despair,
hope, threads, feathers
and wax – wings for
his son and himself:

Frivolous Icarus,
keep yourself in check,
headlong highflyer,
your dreams have
melted, before you
crash for an inaccessible
future, leaving behind
a desperate father.

Jos Letschert Lincera, thanks you very much for your feedback, especially for the connection you have made with the poem. I try to combine the text and the painting in a same restricted and restrained way. Thanks a lot!
14 January 2017 at 01:56pm
Lincera avatar
Lincera In fact the connection is yours dear Jos, you have expressed it with your work and I have received it as a spectator ... and if I receive what you have expressed then, at least now, we speak the same language ... thanks to you!

Pierre Vogel avatar
Pierre Vogel Jos, when I look at your work, I see the portrait of poets Antonin Artaud, the portrait of a tragic life.
(Jos, quand je regarde votre oeuvre, je vois le portrait du poète Antonin Artaud, le portrait de sa vie tragique)

Kerstin Stolzenburg Jos, da ist Dir eine sehr eindrucksvolle Bild-Text-Kombination gelungen. Wunderbar! Ich nehme sie in meine Favoritenliste auf.

Jos Letschert Alexander, thanks a lot. I am very pleased that you like it.
15 January 2017 at 12:43pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Pierre, thanks for your comment. Yes indeed, Artaud is a bit in it. That is a coincidence, but an interesting observation. Artaud died in the year I was born, 1948. A tragic life. It reminds me to the life of Vaslav Nijinski. I am reading a lot about him at the moment because I will visit soon (for the fifth time) the amazing ballet-performance 'Nijinski' , in the choreography of John Neumeier in Hamburg.
Pierre, merci beaucoup!

Jos Letschert Kerstin, danke für deine Rückmeldung. Ich freue mich immer besonders auf Aufmerksamkeit für die Kombination: Text und Bild. Schön zu spüren wenn so etwas auch 'ankommt' beim Betrachter. Herzlichen Dank nochmals, habe mich, wie gesagt, sehr darüber gefreut!
