I decided to do something a little different with Jane’s Random Word List this week–I cut out all the words and combined them with a few from my own collage box oracle on a painted postcard, as I like to do (but haven’t done often enough lately). The image was inspired by Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday prompt, the photo by her friend, Terri Webster Schrandt, below.

vagabond friend–
the countryside extends
great distances—opens
time to welcome
you home

            1. There used to be talk of Zero Population Growth, but you never hear that any more. Yes, way too many humans for the world to support. But Capitalism evidently needs more and more people to buy its more and more goods.


        1. People are pretending there’s no virus which is not so good. I still keep hearing about people getting sick every week. But I feel OK about riding the subway and going to museums with a mask on–on the subway not so many wear them, but museums are better. And I have no problem meeting with friends who I know are careful. I still wear a mask in public places, indoors, or where it’s crowded. I would say maybe 25% do.

  1. Oh yea, I like these Kerfe, painting and words, I do. Especially your watercolor-ie work, you know by now, all of them. Two notions (technical) if I’m permitted to say. One, bigger is better (just cause I like them big to see). Two, how about a integrated combination of some sort? Meaning perhaps, picture #1, just the pure picture itself on the posting page, THEN linked to a second (big) copy with the words on that one. So… best of both worlds me thinks. I do that sometimes myself. (Just me being greedy for more of your artistic fingerprints. 🙂

    1. You know I usually photograph the postcards before putting on the words, but I was in a hurry and forgot to do it with this one. I agree, it’s good to have a copy of the naked painting.


  2. This is a hug and a cup of tea in the shape of a poem painting! My best friends tend to be of the gentle vagabond variety, for sure.
