dogwood and yarn. (english poetry)

dogwood and yarn 2

Author’s Notes:

The structure of the composition was severely inspired by Jack Leonard’s song “All the Things you Are“, a beautiful song that was a hit during the 1930s in America.

I finally found a practical and pleasing way to put whole compositions into a single image, took me long enough. I’m not very technologically savvy.

This is another free-hander. I haven’t had much time to sit down and actually compose, so I mostly scribble into my notepad throughout the day and I get these results. At least, I hope they aren’t too bad. And thank you for reading, I don’t often thank people who read and do not comment, and it’s not on purpose, I’m just forgetful. Regardless, thank you so much for following the unglamorous journey of a dreamy kid writing poems.

  1. I’m completely hopeless with technology too!
    The images that you’ve chosen contrast and complement each other so beautifully. The warmth of the ‘spices’ and flame-like ‘flickers’, against the cool ‘waves’ and ‘foam’, wrapped up in the juxtaposition of ‘icy stench’ and ‘enlightened flames’…I’m burning up and shivering. x

    1. Sekar; I always miss you greatly. I have to bookmark your blog, but I always forget. (Doing it as I write this)
      You got all of it right, every image was meant as a parallel of the surreal, trying to inspire a certain meaninglessness to what we are, but simultaneously, a beauty in that void. A beauty that can belong.
      Thank you, as always, you’re awesome.

      1. Love the explanation! It’s as beautiful as your poetry. I’ve always found it immensely satisfying when a writer refuses to limit their skill to ‘poems’ alone and uses it in other contexts. 🙂
