I have a poem up in this month’s Visual Verse. I am in good company in this issue:
Jane Dougherty, Kerfe Roig, and Luanne Castle are among the published responses (so far) to this month’s image by Olga Naida. The Visual Verse images are always . . .unusual. You can read my poem, “Near Miss,” and see the image here.
You can read all the responses here.
Wow! I am so impressed by your poem. Even if separated from its inspiration photo, it would lose none of its meaning or impact. Brava! (My reaction to the photo was “Huh?”)
Thank you very much. I’m so glad the poem stand alone, too.
Yes, that’s my reaction to most of the VV images! They’re almost always very odd. 🙂
You’re welcome, Merril.
That is definitely an odd image to work with and yet you managed to draw something rather deep! Well done, Madam! And congratulations 🙂
Thank you very much, Dale!
Visual Verse always has odd images. 🙂
And you took to the challenge so very well. 🙂
Thank you! 😊
A beautiful poem in response to this month’s interesting image! ❤
Thank you so much! 💙
I like the way you’ve layered emotion into the image. It’s indeed one of the stranger ones. (K)
Thank you very much, Kerfe. It is!
I love that poem. Congratulations, Merril.
“…imagination is a powerful force…” 👏❤️
Thank you so much, Lamittan That is very kind. 😊
Congratulations, Merril! And yes, it is 😊
Thank you, Ingrid! 😊
Congratulations. The poem is so well done – right from the first line
Thank you so much, Derrick!
Great poem, Merril!!!
Thank you, Resa!
