As we approach the end of 2014, I have been motivated to revisit some of my illustrated original poems from this year and rework them (if the spirit moves me). So it was for my haiku “Evidence” last week, and for this week I made over one of my free verses from the summer, “Lightning Strike Over the Ocean.” The adjustments to the collage were minimal, but the poem has been significantly revised. Enjoy! The photo collage was inspired by Nicole Chesney’s installation “Verity (magenta blue), Repose, and Verity (blue green gray).” Photos, collage, poem, and composition by me. Happy Friday and Happy Holidays to all!
