The Loves of Sochi
by Steven McCabe
Swept up by a spark
A kiss after dark
Beneath a bridge
The future cascading
Tarkovsky studies music and Arabic
He will create
Winning top prize at the Venice Film Festival
captures life as a reflection,
life as a dream.”
– Ingmar Bergman
On the bridges of Sochi
Hand in hand
A scene from Tarkovsky’s film Stalker:
From the art to the words even the link! A true delight thank you Steven.
Thank you Heather for visiting and your generous enthusiasm.
Wonderful, icy images. And the phrase, “bridges of Sochi” so poignant. Thank you xx
Thank you Narelle. I wonder now, after your comment, if I might have called it The Bridges of Sochi. Something to sleep on.
Ah, that clip of ‘Stalker’ just entered my soul, never to leave, why don’t I know this film-maker? Like watching Bergman on acid. And your words, scratched into your classic faces creating mystery…you have the touch Steven…I travel through your posts in wonder…
Thank you John…from what I’ve seen of Tarkovsky’s work, and seeing interviews, he’s certainly somebody to explore in depth.
Words…scratched into faces…creating mystery. Your thought suggests the texture of scratching as a layer in the revelation of a mystery. Forward or backward perhaps. A wonderful thought.
Thank you Dina!
