Flying Out of this World

Yesterday, my dear witchy friend, chosen sister, and all around wicked talented artist, Gina Morley, changed her Facebook profile picture. I went to “Like” the painting she chose, saw another piece I love, then another caught my eye, and after that I was completely lost inside the wondrous world of my Gina’s art for about… a very long time. I figured that it would be only fair that you, too, were given the chance to be inspired by creations that are out of this world…

For Day 16 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem where the speaker travels to a parallel, but infinitely remote, universe.

Travel to a world where faery magic is spread through bubbles…
Gina 1
Or where wheeled mice gave winged folks suspiciously bored looks…
Gina 2
Perhaps, your chosen world would be inhabited by Blooming Howls

P.S. If you choose to display Gina Morley’s work at your site, please link the post to her blog. That goes for you, too, Gina *cackles witchy style*.


* Leave a link to your poem, as a comment. Include the title of your entry, and the direct link to your post. Example: “NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015”: Visit other Wicked Darlings and comment on their yum. They might visit you (it’s polite).

* If you use this prompt, please link it to your post. And if you are feeling extra delicious, link your poem to the main entry. Show others where to go. Spread the word. Linking back to the source will Big Bang new galaxies. Really.

  1. “Cackles witchy style,” wow, that’s high praise for your friend! I love, love, love Gina’s art! Yes, I am going to visit Elena’s link above. I will also check out Gina’s work further. What a fun post, I feel like I’m getting in on the main floor of a very cool building! Amy

    • “…getting in on the main floor of a very cool building” that sounds nice, in all the meanings of the word. I think this month of poetry is doing that: putting us in contact with a gallery of yum! *CWS*

    • This is all your fault, you know? I was looking at your art, remembering when you painted it (I think I spent 30 minutes browsing through the pictures of the journal you made about your father, lol). I was up so late that it is almost indecent to share the hour. Almost. 😀

  2. Loved Gina’s artwork–couldn’t find one that really went with my personal strangeness, but so glad to have encountered it. Here is my attempt to fly to a parallel world, but not as remotely as I’d wish, just inside my head:

    Darkest Light

    See everyone later.

  3. Jamie Lopez is an artist who lives in Florida. She gave up the 9 to 5 and spends full time painting, drawing, teaching her son Juju at home, visiting with her beloved Norma, and sharing her heart with the world. I fell in love with the vibrancy of her work. I wrote a poem about her because it struck me to do so and we talk often enough to sate my happiness. This poem is a nod to when I stepped from words into paintings and back out again. It’s her that showed me I could walk both paths.
