  1. I really like the abstract image that still conveys a concrete idea within this piece…I also like how you incorporate sketch lines that the word images play off of…Very interesting piece~ Namaste~

    • Hello Leila, thanks for stopping by. What I like most about these types of poems is that one can let the images add another dimension to the words almost like two poems in one. I started out doing this with sillouttes but found later that adding elements of typography allow me the freedom to add backgrounds as well as subtle details. I guess the trick is finding the right balance of each. While the poem itself questions nightmares from a safe distance, the image comes along and sneaks up on you…atleast that was my intent 🙂
