Salvador Dali’s Meditative Rose is one of my favourite paintings ever (close contenders are The Kiss by Gustav Klimt and a painting by my cousin Carmen – I am the proud owner of this original work of poster-paint on board). Last weekend I spent time in the garden trying to photograph my cats, but gave up when they insisted on turning their bottoms to the lens; instead, I turned to my afternoon snack.
And so I give you – Meditative Naartjie.
I love this photo.
I also loved the naartjie itself, which was sweet and juicy. From meditative, it evolved to munchable.
To continue in this artyfarty vein, here’s my version of William Carlos Williams’ poem:
I have eaten the naartjies that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold
