Postcardia-cum-Poetica #52

And I’ve reached the magic number of 52, representing an entire year of postcardia here! Despite long pauses with no postcards to post or falling behind in posting here, it appears that I’ve basically made up time, in the productive between times to round all this out in 52 weeks. You can click back and see #1 here from the 14th October 2016 (

This is the promo postcard for The Hamlet Apocalypse with 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?

There was bird then going on for a bit and this wasn’t final stretch at playing along at home with ‘bird’s eye view’.
