What’s next?

This is,

Then this.

Now this:

There’s a print on my wall

An Alhambra impression

A picture of  pictures

A framing of frames

Foreshortened pool

In the foreground


Like a palette

Oily with colour

Water reflective

Behind it a wall

Framing a doorway

Arched entrance or exit

Behind that a wall

Framing a doorway

And so on receding

No not an exit for

Each stage invites you

To enter discover


What’s next.
