Old Poem Saturday – Prayer – Hughes



It is my pleasure to present the results of a wonderful collaboration I had with Ms. Danka Czarnecka of D is for Doodle (check our her blog!). Her art is whimsical and unique (I want to make T-shirts out of every one of them!) and I was delighted when she agreed to draw with poetry for her inspiration. From the poems I sent to her she created a series of doodles with Langston Hughes’ beautiful epigram “Prayer” as the focus. When I saw them I felt strongly that the three pieces follow the arc of a day – morning, noon, and night – so I will post them that way. Stay tuned for “afternoon” and “evening”! Enjoy and have a lovely weekend! Drawing by Ms. Czarnecka, composition by me.
