Happy March!

I can’t believe we are already in March! January and February went by so fast, I had lots of creativity ideas for these 2 months. Looking back I see I have done nothing. But March will be different (at least I hope), lots of creativity in my art journal, writing and photography. Here are 2 pages I did yesterday, just in case you need inspiration as well.

Have a lovely and inspiring March!

Writing 201: Hero(ine)

The poem should be Ballad – “Ballads are dramatic, emotionally-charged poems that tell a story, often about bigger-than-life characters and situations. They can be long, short, rhymed, or unrhymed — by now there are no strict rules — though it’s still common for ballads to have a refrain.”

Writing 201: Poetry Potluck

This weekend’s assignment; “share with us a poem that you love (by someone who isn’t you, please).

“Zero” of Hafiz is a poem that says a lot to me. I have copied it in an index card and placed it on my dream board in my studio. I see this poem, that now I know by heart, every morning when I am writing my morning pages, and when I’m making my art pages. This poem helps me to focus on myself, on what is important to me like simplicity and tranquility.

Zero

Is where the Real Fun starts.

There’s too much counting

Everywhere else!
-Hafiz

Writing 201: Fog

Today’s topic is Elegy:

Elegy: “Originally requiring specific meters, nowadays elegies come in all shapes and sizes, though they are united by their (often melancholic) focus on loss and longing.”

You’ve taken my innocence and trust away

Your cold hands cover everywhere

The mist you bring under your veil

Is spreading all around

Frozen river here and there

Go away steal no more

Bring back what is mine next time

Surrender to the mystery
