Postcardia-cum-Poetica #50

Fan art postcard of Totoro with words from Women Who Run With The Wolves (which is quite overwhelming as a page of text but is proving to be quite easy and playful in its smaller fragments!)

Postcard is from my dwindling supply of Avant Cards. Long Life is from the series Eyre by Kane Alexander. Words from Women Who Run With The Wolves

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #48

This is the second accidental sea-themed poem I’ve created this week! Postcard is Matisse’s Algues (1947) from the Queensland Gallery Store postcard series. Words from Women Who Run With The Wolves

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?
