Some of the greatest joys in this journey are the people that you get to share it with. One such person on my blog journey has been a very talented artist Tera of Olive Hue Designs. Last year, was privileged to write a poem about one of her pieces of artwork that was included in her submission for the Sketchbook Project.
Over the weekend, I received a treat by having her do a picture based on one of my poems, which you can view here. She also asked for another poem for this years Sketchbook Project, which is themed, "Fill me with stories." Below you will find the poem that I sent her last night. Thank you for the opportunity, Tera.
tearing pages from the book of me
i swirl sentences like spaghetti
on fork tips, taking mouthfuls of
words, i chew ingesting character
& memory, spice of my history,
those that came before me, dreams
tied round once propelled feet, eyelashes
wished upon mouths breezes, balloons
released to fates favor, the teddy bear
i never thought i would without sleep , these
paint me in color, number by number,
across blank canvas, chant cadence
in verse on souls barren journal pages
fill me with stories...
fill me with stories,
once upon a time,
