Visual Poetry Set to Words



I quilted summer and hung
its sunflower colors on the wind,
a rebel flag defying winter’s gray.



My fingers draw
a daisy postcard
on the frosted window…
Spring daydreams blossom in winter snow…


Margaret Bednar at Real Toads challenged us to write words to the beautiful visual poems of Maria Wulf.  Artistic Interpretations With Margaret

Very beautiful, Susie. I remember how I loved doing that when I was a kid. We had a lot of snow and long cold winters where I grew up.

Each poem captures the very essence of the video clips you chose. I love the quilt depicted as a rebel flag.

The brevity suits these well...I love the tanka-ish feeling of the second one, Susie. :)
