Impressions of a leaf

Impressions of a leaf

I thought I’d re-post an older shape poem of mine that fits the tree theme I’m currently blogging. It’s a concrete poem of a leaf, pressed against the page and preserved for your gaze. With each dawn comes manifold new leaves, unique in their own hues and silhouettes, unabridged secrets of calendar moments. I hope you are all having a wonderful, relaxing Sunday wherever you reside! Enjoy!

    Lovely all around! I like how you used green ink. 🙂

    • Thank you! It was originally in black ink, but I revisited it and dyed the font green to make my poem pop like leaves in spring! Hope you had a relaxing weekend and keep up the inspired work on your blog, my friend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler

  5. Very cool! Might have to try a shape poem…

    • Thank you, Harula! Please give it a try! You will not only find that it strengthens your word choice, but shaping text into objects is such a treat and never a waste of time or space 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
