So…I write a poem. Then I spend LOTS of time looking at pictures and picking one out. Like the last poem – Hollywood n’ Costco. Since I was already in a Hollywood frame of mind when I read the prompt and since we’d just been to Costco this afternoon, I wrote this poem. THEN I went looking for a photo.
Why a photo with my poetry? That’s a good question. Images are emotionally confirming to me. Not that an image makes what I write make sense…but particular images say to me: Aha! This photographer or painter felt – at a moment – what I’m feeling.
Art is as universal as feelings. Images are soothing to me – often more soothing than words.
You’re on your way back. It will feel good to feed you and see you smile.
