POETRY AND PICS
9 September 2014
Today marks the end of: “The 365 Poetry Project” that an American blogger, Charlotte Cuevas undertook for an entire year. Each day of the past year she wrote and posted a poem.
I only discovered her journey and blog when she was on poem 180 something; or maybe even later than that. But the part of the journey I have gone along with, has been awesome. The imagery she captures with her words is remarkable!
She is a talented writer. Go and see her blog HERE.
Or if you are on Goodreads find here THERE too… and give her book of poems a recommendation; if you like it!
During this year’s Lent, I decided to stop blogging. However, without publishing them, I did my own 40 days of poetry and/or pieces.
I then came across AmberAfrica’s blog (she is from Mpumalanga) who had some really good pictures posted there.
I decided I wanted to do a collaboration using her pictures and my words. So some of the pictures from my new blogging series: Poetry and Pics are from her site.
And then earlier this year, I discovered Instagram. (Yep, I know I’m slow on the uptake, but still… I like it a lot.) Find me HERE
“Often, pictures are better than words.”
So each day (for the next forty, excluding weekends) I will post a poem and most of them will be accompanied with a picture; that hopefully ties with the theme of the words…
Are you ready?
