I recently found myself engaging actively, for the first time, with photography (via my android device). I was amazed to find myself capturing images that I found to be inspirational to my poetic imagination.
At around the same time, I commenced working with a Seventeen Syllable restriction applied to some of my work. The number derived from Haiku, but the style remaining more akin to my usual approach to the exploration of ideas.
This series I’ve called A Book of Clouds. I find myself enchanted with them.
Thank you for reading these attempts to match image with idea with poetry. The first poem in this series is called: every blue.
