Artist Book with poetry

December 12, 2015 by petrujviljoen

The haiku were gleaned from a novel by Iris Murdoch – the second-hand book fell apart in my hands as I read. I cut words, some sets of words that I liked and put them together differently.

There is a scene in the novel where Anne Cavidge, the nun in Nuns and Soldiers, finds Jesus himself in her kitchen – a vision she had. And after this she goes chasing after a boyfriend! Doesn’t make sense.

Poems in order of images read as follows:

point in empty space

the void gleamed – turning silver

refined energy

 

invisible strength

laughing into the deep earth

water veiled the rock

 

mythological

a sacred self-awareness

with new innocence

…………………………

I’m linking this to Bastet’s A Month of Haiga

    These are really splendid and I like the unique way you put them together … a fascinating idea! I’m having a hard time choosing just one haiku as best to tell the truth – each one has something that speaks to me in a different manner.. And thanks for linking in with me 🙂

I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
