Ingmar Bergman I

Ingmar Bergman I

A Poem by Samuel Pennell

Dark, liquid emptiness
flows through the veins 
of his films

It floods through 
their glass bloodstream, 
reaches out into their fingertips, and blossoms,
like a dark and evil flower in springtime

This was great Samuel. A perfect description of a legend. The darkness drips from your words, while the admiration peeks out from between the lines
