‘It was an aesthetic education to live within those walls…’ —Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited


The photography challenge this week was ‘curve‘….

Surely there is science in this room
all math and formulas
and dry explanations
for how can straight lines
of ramrod light
stream through blinds
of unyielding linearity

such lines then quietly to fall
in strange striations
gentle undulations
radiating sweet curves
over quiescent chairs
(velvet in their softness)

Surely there is science
in this pool of light
and rounded words
such as curvilinearity
Make me crave
another cup of tea

(The only thing I know for sure is that this is a cosy reading spot where one can sip a cup of tea, read a classic English novel, and, depending on time of day, resemble a slightly bemused zebra)
