Postcardia-cum-Poetica #47

Created from AvantCard’s reproduction of Valery Segodnya’s World Press 1st prize photography. This taken from ‘Black Days of Ukraine’. 

The image won my heart in its intersection of bleakness and hope when it arrived in a handful of postcards via a friend. I’ve thought about it so many times but it hasn’t been the card I’ve pulled it. 

Until today. 

I wanted to create a poem that reflected my original reactions of bleak and hope. While not sunflowers, the fact I could randomly pull fragments with gardening references – #enoughsaid! Words from Elyora.

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #46

Hello Totoro. It’s been a while since I did one of these. This was the card I used to keep my sage smouldering on the last dark moon and has been sitting on my desk for a week as a kind of self-mocking depiction of where I was in life. 

New fragment baggie begun for Women Who Run With The Wolves and a worthy postcardia debut.

I’ve fallen out of the practice of doing weekly cards (soul-business-heart work distracting and draining) but am determined to turn it around this week.

Have you checked the spirit requirements for your wildish soul?

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #45

One of the last hurrah postcards from AvantCard, Sarah Contos’s award winning The Long Kiss Goodbye, with fragments from The Time Traveler’s Wife.

Mapping The Soul-Skin

After a bit of a break, I’m back at my desk with paint and torn book pages, making a beautiful mess.


Mapping The Soul-Skin is my latest series of found-word art-poems. The plan is to produce one a week for 12 weeks on a Monday. The best news it that, unlike the previous series, they will be available for immediate sale. 


Women Who Run With The Wolves is the source text for the series and all the artwork is in monochrome turquoise. 

It feels great to be back in the company of word fragments and a tube of glue. And as if by perfect alignment, Angus and Julia Stone have a new album as a soundtrack for the next few months of creation.


Each poem’s uniqueness is assured by the imperfection in its cut and paste design.  Poems are approximately C5 sized and are on a range of paper thicknesses to achieve different effects. All are hand named and numbered. 

Purchase price is $35 with $3 worldwide postage. All payments processed through PayPal.Me unless otherwise organised.
