A Valentine in Black and White

"Acephala", from Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur (1904)

This photograph is a companion to the poem
"Love Hurts - A Valentine",
also published today
with a tattered old sepia photo
of my school days.


  1. This Ernst Heackel pairs perfectly with your piece.

  2. Thanks Tess; and for reminding me too that I should add a credit (I will)---I take too much advantage of Wikipedia--- off to the bank.

  3. A wonderful companion, which adds yet another layer to your richly textured piece with its magical first line...

    -whole lives are here or in the making - it's a beautiful piece, full of wonderful imagery and itmakes me want to know more about the girl on the end of the row.
