I've been to sunny Utah and back during the past few weeks. Spent Thanksgiving with family, which was great after such a long absence. It's a holiday that I really miss, so I was glad for the chance to be able to celebrate it once again.
I've picked out a painting I made in one of my art journal books a couple months ago.
The poem is as follows:
where sunflowers grow and fairies fly
we crawl to the stars and turn our ears
to stories of nature
woven with power
you think it's unbelievable
hand in the blue, colors to enjoy
the night's legends of purple stone
that live in grace and marble
is this the closest we come?
I like the visual effect of the clipped lines on the page - they help create the breaks and pauses and of course, the alignment is free form which does affect the reading of the poem. It's lots of fun doing this, and I encourage you all to try your hand at it - with or without your own painting! :)
