A list of thoughts

I saw a challenge on dVerse Poets suggesting writing a poem from a list. -http://dversepoets.com/2014/10/23/meeting-the-bar-ive-got-a-little-list/ .

Jules’s shells and Aphrodite’s shrine
– hot sun on a snow capped mountain
tumbling stones from another lifetime
– hymns to beauty

Feathers for drumstick and the
medicine shield as restitution,
hearing the pulsating beat
echoing through dreams
– the fallow deer on the hilltop
eyes like agates, questioning.

– decorated talismans,
totems from the edge of the universe.

    1. Thank you -it’s a line I thought up years ago and has been hanging around in my brain ever since waiting for the right moment to pop out again. 🙂

  1. Nice that those pieces parts from all over are helping to create peaceful art projects.
    The peace in the creation, the peace in the completions, and the peace in sharing.

    Thanks for using all the little treasures. 🙂

    Maybe one of these days I’ll get back to stringing my own beads…

    1. Thanks Jules – yes thinking about stringing beads and actually doing it are two separate things 🙂 Writing about the possibility is definitely more poetic and fun for me at present.

    1. It’s more like a list of art projects I must get around to finishing or even starting 🙂 The ultimate kind of procrastination – write a poem about art you could make if you were actually making art 🙂 Still – it is spur to action – I’m hoping to have some of the simpler projects finished by the end of next week.

  2. some cool little treasures that you are putting into your art…i would be particularly interested in the totems and feathers….sounds like you found them from all around the world as well…

    1. I found the totems in my imagination after a lot reading about animal symbolism – it’s a subject I’m really fascinated by – the feathers are mostly emu feathers and some from sea birds. The beads have been collected from all over the world and the shells and coral were sent to me by a blogging friend. 🙂

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
