This is a boy stretched sleepily over white sheets with muscles taught and tired from time-traveling most likely.

Absolutely beautiful. An angle that I'm not familiar with seeing, it promotes feelings of exposure, comfort, ecstasy, and the absolute absence of fear. The white wrinkles of the sheets, the lighting, the flawless skin, the relaxed hands...they all work together. I love this.

Oh, and whoever this model is...I don't know if it's you, or someone else...great body, honestly. It had to be said ^^

Ridiculously perfect.

speaking as a poet this could raelly inspire writers to make this image literary. this is very graaceful and beautiful in a euphoric sense. i would have to say that this looks far from sleep, more like fresh exhaustion. magnificent shot

Being more of a creative writer than anything, I always (without actually meaning to) tend to think up back stories to art that I see. This is a very inspiring photograph.
There is so much beauty in this piece it's almost overwhelming. The arch of your back, the contrasting sharpness of your chin, the grace in the lines of your body...it's sensual almost to the point of seductive. The muscles seem anything but taught to me, however. It seems to me as though you're coming out of a moment of taughtness brought on by a moment of rapture as though you've fallen back onto the sheets (perhaps from the ecstasy that is time travel?). Does that make any sense? I feel as though I'm contradicting myself. Well even if I am, I mean it all! :XD:
I love the lighting in this, by the way.

(When better to take up my commenting than now? Hahah)

Wow, I've never had an homage to one of my works.. thank you. I'm so glad that the piece inspired your own creativity. Haha, apart from my desires for power and glory, I could ask for no better outcome in terms of what is transferred between artist and audience -or artist and artist in this case- through the work as a medium :hug:

I am very aware of the mimesis you've employed where the lines arch to represent the photograph, both in individual stanzas and in the poem as a whole (and in the title of course). The last lines, "Grow taut for games/ of light and shadow" bear a personal significance relative to my discussions with teachers, college reviewers, etc. when I've had to talk about this piece and the series that it was created in. This was from the same shoot as my piece One Way To Time Travel [link] . They ask questions like, "Why did you create these? What were you trying to do?" and I basically always tell them that the photos were created to demonstrate the dynamics of light and shadow on various arrangements of muscle, skin, etc.. different positions I guess. Which, I mean, is a bullshit answer.. I had no specific agenda in creating them. But anyway, the answer that I give is something that correlates to those lines in your poem. Possibly a subconscious transfer between us. Awesome.

I love the bit about reading fortunes in cracks along the ceiling :) That is my favorite part, I think.

And you were right on in comparing the model -me- to a cat, in fact, my totem animal..or the animal that I often see in myself and associate myself with is a Puma (or some creature like it).

A lovely poem with some really sweet emotive content. Thank you very much for sharing it with me :)

...so basically I'm going to say "thank you", because I've been so very stunned (in a good way) by your response that I haven't been able to come up with something a bit more decent. ^^; But I always love it when two artists have a moment of sharing brainwaves. It usually leads to good things. :D
