You may know that in addition to my poetry I also do art, posted on my blog Claudia McGill and Her Art World. For the next several months I will be posting here a combined art/poetry project, Large Artist Sketchbook 2020.
I fill up sketchbooks with all kinds of art. Some contain images only and some of them I use the images as inspiration for poetry. In these books the image is on one page of the spread and the poetry on the other. This book is set up in this manner.
I’ll show you the image and then add the poem that goes with it. See what you think.
I hang back. I hide.
How did you
coax me out
and place this warm sun of hope
into my sad heart?

I really like this collage. I can see both the sadness and the hope in the poem you wrote for it.
I have experienced this in my own life, sadness, and a person who brought sunshine. More than once. So this collage, which I made first, just comes out of that, and the words naturally followed.
I can understand that.
