Klimt 9 pieces

This is my interpretation of a Klimt painting, it was cut into nine artist trading cards for swapping. A project over at I juxtaposed a Scherenschnitt watercolored tree over Klimt's tree. Puzzy work, but I like the outcome. It didn't help that I was sick and tried to work on it, I almost cut it to ribbons! It was nice of the swap hostess to give me a little extra time. Thanks Sirius.

Forget Everything
By John Squadra

If someone says, “To be enlightened you must
fast and pray all night,”
Have dinner and go to bed.
If you see a sign, “This way to salvation,”
run the other way.
If someone says, “This book is the truth,
you can buy it from me,”
Take your money and buy grapes and roses.
If someone says, “He’s talking tonight,
thousands will be saved.”

Go for a walk…listen to the birds
and watch the clouds, and leave
your backpack, your Bible and your Buddha
under a tree and hope
they will be gone when you return.
Where we are going you can’t carry anything,
not even your name.
If there is logic in the above,
be afraid, it’s a lie.

But if you feel something in your chest
as beautiful as the grass beneath your feet,
be grateful…open your arms
and forget everything
you ever thought you knew.
