Postcardia-cum-Poetica #54

I’ve got quite a collection of card which already have words on them. Words that aren’t always easily covered up (like #52 ) so today’s card was an experiment in creating space for words while mainting the integrity of the original image. It’s given me the confidence to convert a few more of the wordy cards, and thus, further extending the life span of my postcard pile.

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 (

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.
