UPDATED 05.19.14: Here’s my reaction to Sandy Henry’s challenge…enjoy!The air is thin where you are and yet I gasp for air grasp at stones climb higher ever higher to wheeze in a forever moment. You aloft in Prakriti laughing with your fellow demigods and yet I can see you there which means I can be there too. But how? But how? The climb up Babel has left me dizzy my heart lub dubs slower my skin blues with the surrounding sky. Oh let us know one another sweet lord You can walk in my space but I can’t seem to walk in yours what to drink? what to take? to transcend from this fake reality and join us for eternity? I know. I feel I know. Let the last bit of air leave me So I can finally breathe. -Von Simeon
Sandy Henry created this poem and performed it at a recent event. She then posed the challenge of creating a work, any kind of work, in reaction to her poem. I’m up for the challenge; how about you?
I’m gonna do a creative reaction and post it Sunday evening. Whatever you decide to do – photo, poem, prose, song, freestyle – send me a link to it. You can post it on your blog, just make sure to give me a touchback. 😉 Sandy is looking forward to our activity.
