Mad Symphony: a collaboration

literal symphony nina s

nk magnetic poem 1

Despite the bugginess of the Magnetic Poetry website, Nina and I had a wonderful time composing this poem, sending it back and forth for addition and revision many times.  I did one illustration, and Nina did two.

mad symphony k close up s

to stop shadows from moaning
whisper to the sky like a rainstorm
petals sing to my dreams

some say music is like a watching wind
mad symphony like a summer moon
red and frantic blowing delirious screams
over a thousand purple seas

still   life soars as love urges us
and together we shine by day

    Fantastic – art & words!
    Sometimes I’ll spend ten minutes looking for a word I know I saw in the mix. I can imagine the effort it took to collaborate.

    Wow! When you two get together, something magic happens. I can’t even choose a favorite. The moaning shadows are leaping out at me and the lovely collages, blocks of color, so much for the eyes to see. Thank you both.

    Nina: Your fans are crowdsurfing, waiting for your next musical appearance. The bouncers have them under control for now, but who knows how long? 💚💜

    I am a small, part-time artist who has a brother and oldest daughter who are artists, we love creative artworks! I enjoyed the words woven with watercolors, then the ribbons woven and it all fits the Mad Symphony theme. 🙂
