Why Ruysch?

Naked trees shiver
Like stripped bones of lost childhood
Yes, wipe tears away.

Solemn silent death
Weeping for your lost future
Forest with no leaves


Haiku inspired by artwork above: A depiction of one of Ruysch’s displays, featuring infant skeleton’s weeping into handkerchiefs, as featured in Alle de ontleed- genees- en heelkindige werken…van Fredrik Ruysch… vol. 3 –See more here.
