|Naturaleza Muerta Resucitando, by Remedios Varo|
Still Life Reviving
where pain fills then falls
from the heart's high point
draining out from
that destroys nothing
to build itself,
fluttering cloth in
that inflates without informing,
transports, supports, returns to
blooming without a pension
to pleasure a bee,
for a flame-juiced globe spitting
sailing match to wick,
no need to know why.

Karin Gustafson hosts today and asks us to write to a holiday(or not)theme of presents/presence. This painting seems to me the embodiment of a presence unseen, life perhaps, as the title suggests. Remedios Varo(María de los Remedios Alicia Rodriga Varo y Uranga) was a Spanish-Mexican, para-surrealist painter and anarchist. She was born in Spain in 1908, died in Mexico City in 1963, making this one of her last paintings.
