A Poet Responds to a Painting

Recently I received some fabulous mail from a Canadian friend. It was chock full of the kind of ephemera we journaling types adore.  Canada is celebrating it’s 150th birthday this year but it seems I get the presents. She included a lovely Starbucks Canadian travel mug I have been toting back and forth on my out and about town excursions. One of the exquisite treasures I received was an artist post card. On it was a painting I felt incredibly drawn to, above the many lovely images sent. As I tipped it (taped it with washi tape) into my journal, I was inspired to write a poem.

Poetry continues to be a powerful pathway for me. I believe it is a pathway for  many things, connection, community, and conversation. Art offers the same  to all in its various forms. There is no limit to where the imagination can lead. I  find inspiration in both artwork and artist, so be sure and check out the artist whose work inspired the poem below:  Shannon Ford. I know you will find her work incredible to  see!
