so I’ll be offline for the foreseeable future. I’ll miss you!
Pop goes the weasel
goes the world out
the world reeking of
weasel out of it
I missed the window for the dVerse Pop Art prompt from Victoria last week, but I had an idea for it and I wanted to follow through. I also wanted to try a Lewis Carroll Square Poem, which I saw on Paul’s Poetry Playground recently. My attempt is far from perfect, but it’s a start, and the fact that it doesn’t completely make sense seems appropriate.
I don’t agree with the designation for the most of the artists Victoria found that were listed as pop artists (Kurt Schwitters? Jasper Johns? Rauschenberg? has the person who made that list looked at their art?) but Andy Warhol certainly falls into that category. My digital art, above, is inspired by his work. I used to dismiss him, but his art is wider and deeper than just the soup cans or iconic repeated images. And all his imitators prove that it’s harder to do than it looks.
He did not have Photoshop either.
I was late to the Oracle this week, but her words seemed appropriate for Sue Vincent’s photo prompt above. There was half of a luminous moon in the sky last night.
how the moon longs for
each wandering season
to make life’s deep path
through ancient cycles of song–
walking with earth–
orbiting distant stars
The moon keeps her proper place in the circles of the universe. Hopefully humans will return to theirs.
