comment: this actually is Christine's poetry party 36; my numbering was incorrect because I'd forgotten I hadn't played last time.
Abbey of the Arts Invitation to Poetry: poetry party 36
Christine asks us to consider, "In the brilliant light of days growing longer, what do we encounter in the shadows that may have been hidden to us before? What do you discover in the interplay between shadow and light?"
lights, brights, shadows, opaques...
as an artist
every day I consider degrees of
shimmers of revelation
to include in each design project
80% opacity or
and which colors to use
as a person
every day I consider
degrees of transparency and opacity
to present to the world
80% opacity or 20% translucence
a colorless hint of an outline of a self-revealing
but sometimes grace intervenes
spirits away the shadows
and I show far more
and the end result is just fine
