edit Mar 11th: whoa... I never expected such positive response to this. I've never thought very highly of my poetry, and this is the first I've written for nearly two years. I'm glad there are people who like it :aww:

My kind of poetry. What interesting imagery! I never knew you could do so much with a visual art... I just copy paste text =(

Thank you, sweetie. And hey - nothing wrong with pasting text such as you do. There are many forms of visual poetry. I took a look at your gallery and I think the images adds to the mood of the piece, such as an illustration in a book - if you get my meaning?

Then there are visual poetry where text and image is part of the whole concept and wouldn't work as well without eachother. I think that's what I attempted here.... I'm glad you like it :)

One of my absolute favorite pieces of visual poetry on dA is very simple - you can take a look at it here: [link]

The line:

"and that they do not tell of what there she did see"

Seems really awkward but otherwise the poem flows really nicely and I like the way to stucture makes it all disjointed, it reads really nicely

Thank you :aww: Normally when I write poetry, I focus alot on how it sounds, not if it's grammatically right, and so I get alot of "broken" sentences. The problem with this one was that the line you pointed out was the only obvious one in the poem, and so it seems out of place. And yes, I should probably fix that... :p

Thank you for the CC, glad you like :hug:

Wow, I'm not entirely sure why but your poetry really moved me - there's just something about it that I can really empathize with. I also absolutely adore the conceptual layout of it. :)

The poetry is a bit wobbly in the middle but the layout and the ending are so strong it more than makes up for it. Truly lovely.
Reply
:iconeil:
Eil Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2007
Yes, the middle part was the one I had the most problems with. I pretty much had the ending and the start and how it should look when I started.

Thank you for the pointer and the fav - I appreciate both very much :heart:
