Not Writing A Book in My Head – Day 25
I’m also a painter and my studio is a complete wreck from too many overlapping projects. Writing prompts and projects of collage are beckoning and layers of unearthed treasures in my clutter are appearing. I noticed this arrangement of things and decided it would make a inspiring prompt since it’s a poem by a friend who’s a wonderful poet, Linda Eve Diamond.
Her book, The Beauty of Listening, combines visual poems and a variety of forms interspersed with thought-provoking graphics. I’ll post links in more detailed posts as you simply must hear Linda read. Her enunciation and lilt enhance the poetic experience in many ways.
As a firm believer that poets should speak their work aloud to insure against faltering or unintended breakages, I find that Linda proves that listening is in itself an art form that readers will enjoy as she reads her work. Whether being read or being heard, her poems inspire.
