Poets United / Sustainability -- dVerse




Fragments Geometry & Change  30"x30"  gouache on w/c paper


Sustainability

leave a light footprint      respect the earth i walk on              & the creatures

who share my space      follow my own star        each moment is precious

& i try not to waste them                turn off the water      while brushing

burn no more than i need     for light or warmth     because my days are numbered

i try to use what i have wisely

Note:  I'm not sure images are important to what I write.   But recently one comment, said the form I use reminded them of my work.  I liked that.

  6. The form of your poetry seems to mirror the patterns in your art, Annell. And thank you for following me...I think it was you!

  7. Using what we have wisely is probably the best way to go. I guess if we really wanted to reduce our footprint we would stop using oil, cars and the such. Few are willing to go to that extreme. Not yet, anyway.

  8. I share the sentiment.. we should be careful of what we have, and maybe we don't have to be too extreme.. many small steps make up a lot.. Save some food, take the bicycle...

  12. Your poetry form is very interesting. I've never seen it before. But it definitely fits the theme of this poem as you've taken up only as much space on the page for this poem as you needed. :) Peace, Linda

  13. Yes, we try to leave a light footprint. I, too, like the way your formatting of your poems calls to mind your work in the studio........a visual artist of both painting and words.

  15. Nice. Your image works so well with your words, and I like how the form of this piece tends to go with the theme of using as little (space) as you can. Very nice.

  19. Very good poem, Annell! I like the idea and image of a 'light footprint' yet find that, as much as we believe this too be important, it is hard to remember to tread lightly in all we do.
