Poetry written to a piece of triptych art [link]
prompt #2 - the idea here being that with the three written verses you could arrange them in any order - six possible combinations.
My "artwork" (haha) here is FAR from perfect, but I'm a poet not an artist - I needed some visual representation to separate the six sets. It was all I could come up with tonight with materials on hand.
They are best read as three separate verses, but one can also read them 1st sentence across all three, 2nd sentence and so forth. It is something I have wanted to try for a while and #transliterations
provided the perfect prompt (lovely picture too).
Apologies for the blurry results - I used the work scanner.
Interpretation of the original artwork [link]
Although done in three pieces, I felt that each piece was divided in two, hence that gave me some idea for reading it six ways. I felt there were two people walking? dreaming? conversing?, maybe through art?, images?, ideas?, dreams?, and that each triptych piece felt reflected within itself. It is a very abstract surreal piece, and so my words are also abstract. My words were written in about 5mins, no edits (always interesting to write this way).
Example of two ways the 1st triptych can be read:
either:somewhere in the haze
was it a dream
we walked together
against the backdrop
underneath you saw
a camera view
did you capture the moment
when we realised
pieces of now
and then ..
orsomewhere in the haze -- we walked together -- did you capture the moment
you conceptualised -- against the backdrop -- when we realised
was it a dream -- of frames -- everything is
a memory -- underneath you saw -- pieces of now
re-embered -- a camera view -- and then ..
