Nero's Ghost -

"Posing Demurely as the Barn Burns"
digital collage by Mick Mather
"... if to smoke you turn
I shall not cease to fiddle
while you burn ..."
- Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus

Where's the fire brigade?

Cool and calm,
he stood at ease
while the barn
turned into seas
of fire and smoke.
Wood that broke
didn't disturb,
nothing he heard.
Look at his pose!
He only sees his nose.

The fire brigade? They have their own troubles at the station house ... someone left a burner on and the chili caught fire! :O

Burning hot chili requires a barrel of Irish whiskey!

Wonderful. The background and the main image are just so perfectly suited for each other.

So true and that's just for the cook! :D

Thanks very much, Seth. Any new project for the winter? I better stop by your place for a look-see.
