Space

Today’s poem is several years old, written about my husband waaaaaay before he was my husband.

SPACE

 

What I enjoyed most about this poem was putting a fresh illustration with it. It really brought it to life. The background is a blend of a space image from Canva and a photograph of Leah Leor performing on aerial straps (credit to Matthew Ragan from Keene, USA [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)%5D). I had already played around with the concept of visual space through indentation, but this gave me the opportunity to play with the placement of individual stanzas around the image. So far this is one of my favorite marriages of art and my poetry.
