I have four word collages in the current issue of swifts & slows. In addition to writing, they publish some really interesting combinations of image and text.
You can see my collages, and read the rest of the issue, here. Be advised that the link might not work if you’re using Firefox.
My thanks to editor Randee Silv for featuring my work.
thoughts from the collage box oracle for dVerse OLN
wonder–learn to trust–give
the future hope
Jude, at Tales Told Different, nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award and asked all his nominees to answer 11 questions. I thought to do a collage, but then I decided I needed to add a few words…well, the Collage Box Oracle will have her way. Still, she managed to incorporate most of the questions into her answers.
Here is my list of answers:
West Side Story
You can read the questions here. And do look at Jude’s writing while you’re there!
somewhere dawn is singing–
she rises walking aquatic
through lochs and isles
inside the sounds of words
become a friend to fear
drink the dazzling day
I visited the Collage Box Oracle for Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, below.
all life is flow
we mix and match waves that return
only to disappear
step into each moment–
illuminate whatever it is with wonder
The photos made some interesting thought combinations too. But then the Oracle is like that.
This collage was done in response to a prompt back in March at The Ekphrastic Review. The painting for the writing challenge was “The Chess Game” by Sofonisba Anguissola. My poem wasn’t chosen, but you can see the original painting and read the ones that were here.
I decided to see what the Collage Box Oracle had to say about it. A bit enigmatic, but then with Crow hanging around, I suppose that’s to be expected.
the world between why–
the opening of our reimagined eyes–
and does it explore possibilities?
light and shadow speak plainly in the proper context.
matter conjures time—
women play their parts.
I’m taking a break to spend some R&R with family. See you the end of the month!
