Sharing Is Magic that Grows…

A poem is a gift of wonder, one that never stops giving itself, that never stops growing, that never stops evolving with the love that feeds it…

Those were my thoughts after reading Victoria Patella’s latest post, which includes one of my stitched poetry bits—“I am made of wild”—and a delicious poem by her.

see how Victoria made the poetry grow for her

Victoria’s words, her way of digesting the piece, the way in which she relates what she sees… helped me answer a question I hadn’t known I was asking: Why is it that the word “ink”, in a page I’m blacking out, is so difficult for me to resist?

My last three blackout poem bits (after I crafted the first one, a friend challenged me to create two more using the worlds “love” and “ink” *like that’s a real challenge*):

“I art my love in ink.”

and

“I live for bold ink
‘n’ cheeky love.”

and

In the sun,
love her eyes,
her cheek…
in ink.

Photos evolve, too… as you share them and re-experience them with others. When I first saw the picture below, I thought, I really love my t-shirt, and, I so love seeing a bit of urban wild in the middle of New York City, and Goodness, I could cut worlds with that jaw. Hey, I think a lot. Anyway, then someone described what they saw in the picture, and added at least 13 more thoughts to my list.

Sharing is magic that grows.

My Own Ink-Beast

Freaks are like everyone else, we are just freaky about being… and beautiful. If you are a Beautiful Freaks Fest participant, searching for a place to add your latest entry, follow the link. If you have stopped by to delight in my poetry, then read on.

I am
an ordinary freak,
beautiful
when I want. I am terror
and bliss, my own ink-
beast… I think (dancing)
in shadows and rainbows.

Ordinarily,
I am a beautiful freak.
