Postcardia-cum-Poetica #24

Being analogue is good for poeting! This is the fifth card from last week’s digital hiatus (but yes, only the fourth posting!)

Image is Georgia O’Keefe’s ‘Ram’s Head/Blue Morning Glory’. A call and response (if you have a rather broad interpretation of such) to the last card I received.

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #22

With digital communication on hiatus this week, I’ve enjoyed extra forays into Postcardia. As much to let those close know I’m okay. But also because I’ve got a little extra time to play.

Image is James Jean’s ‘Reclamare’ and all his postcards are from Memu: 100 Postcards published by Chronicle Books. I think this now leaves me with fewer than half a dozen of these cards left (I haven’t sent all 100. I am not sure how many Kim originally sent me!)

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #17

My friend, Kim, welcomes a new soul into her family next week and I’d been searching for the right card to be the final card before this momentuous shift. This card, with Mirree Louise Bayliss’s artwork, Ancestral Butterfly, fell out of her colouring book, as I was shifting it from one pile to another on my desk. 

The baggie of fragments, as always, came to the party. 

Post-It Note Poetry, Days 3-5

I’m having fun looking at each poem and trying to decide which ones represent misdeeds, which are misadventures and what are brazen acts of rebellion. You could say there is almost an element of each within every poem, though attaching one particular frame of reference has the capacity to slightly, or greatly, alter the understanding of the poem.

I’ve decided that at the end of the month I’ll put all the poems together and then Alaina, Leanna and I will individually reassemble them to tell the story we think they tell. I’m intrigued to see how each of us will do that.

Until then, days 3-5…
