Lighthouse ParkApril 26, 2005, 01:37 AM
Maybe I'm on a kid blog binge: the red tulip
was a gift from my son; the apple blossoms
for my daughter; so I said to them, I'm going
, I need trees
. Get on the phone & on the NET, get us out of the house, on the sky train, and on the #250 bus to Horseshoe Bay.
The bus driver forgot to let us off, but I jumped up when I saw Beacon Lane, and he apologized as he let us off at the next stop, and back we walked. So we went hiking, there's nothing much to tell, or maybe another post tomorrow, but here's some pics. Yup: that's the trail; aren't those rocks something; and the lighthouse after which the park is named. It took us only an hour to get there, on a scenic bus ride over Lion's Gate Bridge, along the glistening rim of the Pacific ocean...
O, sorry, Spring out here in British Columbia was 2 months ago, now it's hot like Summer...
Solidifying Into LightApril 20, 2005, 04:49 AM
If you'd like to listen to a poetry reading, there is a 3 minute recording of this piece at my site at Sound Click: MP3 Recording of "Solidifying Into Light"
I like to work with multi-media approaches, the writing, an image, a reading...
Writing the words of a prose poem in an image is a time-consuming process, as I found when I photomontaged Horizon After Horizon of Singing Bowls. In "Solidifying Into Light" there is perhaps too much text, yet with much tweaking it can 'work,' if barely.
Creating an image to embed the writing in? It's always a challenge. Today, a photograph, of my amber pendant, my hand beneath the prose poem...
This prose poem arose out of a rather large case of plagiarism at a blog site that has now been closed down.
