Turtle Treasure

Concrete poem of a traveling turtle

I also added my favorite color into the fray of poetry. A rambling turtle gathers green moss, my mind fertile enough to tap into the truisms of a terrapin who shoulders our planet. Not surprisingly, I call my teal Subaru turtle.

    It appears your poetic critters are evolving

    • Thank you, Matthew! Yes, I began with double spaced, spliced concrete poems, then found out how to do a screen shot of my single-spaced poem in open office (and upload on WordPress as a JPEG) and am now playing around with font and background coloring to make shapes stand out more. It is an ongoing evolution with concrete poetry. This is what makes it so fun and challenging. Hope you had a good day, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

        A drunken dancing around in strange and wonderful yet sometimes pent up moves. Hangover awaits

    I have a little nodding turtle on my dashboard also – except mine is plastic. I’ll post him some time. Fun poem

    • Thank you! Very cool! I just posted a photo of my metallic tin turtle on the dash of my Subaru today. When you have time, please post your turtle so we can wax poetic about carapace aesthetics 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler

    This turtle travels tirelessly and is a token of my passion and appreciation for Nature, always teaming with diversity and life, holding up worlds inside worlds inside worlds still, I reside in one small corner, treading lightly at the edges…
