“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way …” Georgia O’Keefe
Art, poetry, literature they all strip away our differences – a glimpse inward to see all souls, a physical manifestation of shared experience in a sensuous curve a fine tuned phrase or main character’s journey home to a different self, a bitter yearning put to rest – reassurance we are not alone with this hurt, with this fragile happiness.
(The August Poetry Postcard Project was initiated by Paul Nelson of Seattle, WA. It challenges poets to write a poem a day in one go with no revisions on a postcard. Afterwards, the postcard is mailed to other participants. This is my second year and I had fun making friends along the way. I will be sharing the postcards here, most of which are printed with my photos.)
