Margarete Petersen Study -XVI - The Tower


  • The roar of a monstrous storm --
    Thunder and Lightening -- the force of the elements --
    the abysses open --
    impossible to escape.
    Ice-cold hail-storms and glowing lava--
    horrifying cries of disembodied creatures - no foothold-
    Nothing remains as it was.
    Fiery breath - the psychic theater is swept clean.
    Separation from constricting patterns.
    A leap into the shaking red heavens.

MP's text and image recall the myth of Typhoeus. Greek primordial monster-giant of destruction...

(It's also gotten me wondering about the link between 'Turm' and 'Sturm' -- tower and storm. Is a "sturm" a s/turm? )
