OPEN this envelope

and in the smooth

yet sharp cornered sheets,

between the scent of fingertips

beyond the spreading ink

is poetry, sapling green

with story fine tears

blood crimes and flowers fight to reveal

each a resplendent joy…..

so sniff it,

and then tip it

to release

a flow of tiny wise stars

  1. she is wonderful!–a perfect representative from the place of all stars…love this piece it sticks so beautifully.:)


  2. I have found the great thing about poetry is that it doesn’t have to always make sense to be thoroughly enjoyed. For instance, I don’t think I have a single idea what this poem is about, but even with that said, the imagery is so beautiful that I cannot help but be swallowed in the ocean of vibrant colours and words that captivate the visual sensors.


    1. I don’t even know 🙂
      I was going to write a long reply but I don’t think that would make sense either at the moment! but it does come from somewhere and it brings me gifts and I am usually pretty excited to receive them… see SEE what I mean 🙂


  3. One thing I have always loved about getting lettermail is that the envelope and contents have been touched by the person who sent it. Sometimes lovingly, sometimes angrily – an energy flows out of that envelope all the same. It’s a bit intoxicating. Kinda like your poetry and art.

    You are a genius. *nosepoke*
