Poetics: Arrangements by Emily Blincoe
Here’s the deal at dVerse ~ Poets Pub .
The theme is arrangements. You can write about the experience of looking at the photos, or write about the scene or subject being depicted in the artwork. You can also write in the voice of the object (e.g. stones, french fries, toothbrush) or write in the voice of the artist, or you can relate the work of the artist to something else that it reminds you of.
– Write a poem in response to the challenge – arrangements-inspired poem.
– Enter a link directly to your blog site by clicking on the Mr Linky
– Read and comment on other poet’s work.
– link back to dVerse from your site/blog.
The corners are correct, in squared space,
In perfect right angles, in rows, straight across,
Oblique and/or down, in chiaroscuro and/or verdant tones,
Bright and/or subdued, in themed content and/or materials.
It all relates, related, the way it is, supposed to be,
And/or placed there by its creator.
Wonderful ending lines, the last two lines. Placed there by its creator….excellent thoughts that can apply to any of the arrangements.
Yes. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Randy
Love your choice of artwork here 😀 so beautifully written 💖
The artwork was posted by the blog site, as noted above, dVerse ~ Poets Pub, so I can’t take credit for that. Thank you for the kind words regarding my poem.
I love how you did this from the point of view of the creator… yes we often do that… don’t we? Create by sorting
Aside from the initial creator who sorted by day and night, heaven and earth, and so on. The next big hitter created an ark and sorted by all creatures, large and small, and by sexes.
I think the rest of us are just small time tinkerers. 😉
And so it is…love that ending line ~ On a deeper level, perhaps we can learn to live together in this space of the universe ~ Thanks for joining us Randy ~
Hmm. I think I would agree, if only we’d stay in our own assigned spaces and not keep warring on our neighbors.
True, this is…..nice.
True dat… yes. Randy 😉
Perfect ekphrastic poetry.
Wow. Thank you.
And thank you for teaching me a new word for what I typically do in a lot of my work.
“chiaroscuro” was a new term for me, and as a word lover, I’m thankful to have been introduced to it. I think it wants to be a future poem title.
I like the pondering of order in your piece. As a fully right-brained person, I have no order…but I do sometimes crave it. 😉
It is a beautiful word. It rolls off the lips. It makes you purse your mouth and kiss the world as you sound it out and end it with that wonderful finality of “oh”.
Ha. it does deserve its own poem.
Hi Randy! I like the angle you have chosen for this prompt, seeing it from the creator’s point of view is something that not many people do as they are so caught up in their own thoughts. That’s what makes your poem fresh. I have to admit the opening line reminded me a bit of my grandmother! I also have to admit to looking up ‘chiaroscuro’, which fits De’s Quadrille shadow prompt from Monday.
Emily Blincoe is quite a creator, and within this, there is something at work that is even greater.
I had to look up Misky’s ekphrastic poetry. I love stretching myself.
Thanks for stopping by and chatting.
Your phrases and descriptions are sharp and concise. I think this further enhances the theme of “arrangement” in your poem.
Thank you. Yes, that was part of my intent along with the repetition and “and/or” reflecting the position of lines or order in the artwork.
Yes, your poem is orderly as Emily’s artwork. I especially love your final two lines!
Orderliness is next to Godliness,,, isn’t that what they say?
I like how you wrote about the very act of arranging and sorting rather than, seemingly, any one of the arrangements in particular.
