I was surprised to find (thanks, Marie) that I have a poem up in the May issue of Visual Verse.
The image is different from the typical VV images. This one is by John Everett Millais.
You can read all the responses by going to the VV link. To see the image and read my poem, click here.
Congratulations, Merril. We’ll done on the poem. As always, cerebral. You’ve always done well picking images for your poems. Not surprised you did well in reverse.
Thank you very much, Frank!
Thank you, Derrick.
Congratulations on your publication, Merril! I particularly like the use of color in this one.
Thank you, Liz.
That’s what stood out for me in the painting.
You’re welcome, Merril.
Congratulations! That image is perfect for your verse. (K)
Thank you very much, Kerfe.
Merril, this is one of my favorite of your poems.
Thank you very much, Luanne. 😊
That’s interesting, too.
You are welcome.
Congratulations, Merril – a beautiful addition to the collection!
Thank you, Ingrid! 😊
Congratulations, my friend! It’s easy to see why you were selected… “the air was scented with dark purple despair and ashes of grief fell from the air” gave me goosebumps. Wonderful! ❤
Thank you so much for your lovely comment, Rachel! 💙
Congratulations! This is a lovely publication and I loved what this month’s image inspired. ❤
Thank you so much, Layla. 💙
Congratulations on your poem there, as well. I really liked–and could hear–that violin music.
You wrote a deep & gorgeous poem to go with the photo.
I do think tomorrow is a continuation.
Thank you very much for your kind words, Resa!
Congratulations! I missed this post. I like your peaceful interpretation. You impressed VV too. It’s not often they publish poems that rhyme even a bit.
I was surprised they took it, since they didn’t take the previous one.
I’m glad they did. It means they’re open-minded 🙂
Maybe so. Thank you again. 🙂
