The Monday Poem

I’ve just finished the first piece in a new poetry series. This piece features the title, Meet Iconic People For Narrow Ideas. There will be another twelve pieces to complete the rest of the poem.

280919

This is the complete poem:

Meet Iconic People For Narrow Ideas

 

A real-life fantasy, this is my idea, my thinking

Amazing, but is it here now? Awe-inspiring at a new level

Captivating Everyone, cheerful is this life, and this Now

 

I use chance operations to create all of my poems, drawings, paintings and collages. I always enjoy hearing from others who do the same. And from poets and artists in general!

This piece, along with others, is currently available in my Etsy shop.

Review – We Are The Underground: Poems by Israfel Sivad

Screen Shot 2019-09-14 at 12.53.22

I would love to meet Israfel Sivad one day, although he lives in America, I’m in the UK… I think we’d have a lot of things to chat about over a glass of something. I find that a lot of poetry doesn’t speak to me because it’s too emotional. This book, We Are The Underground, is a rare find where the poetry can be enjoyed as art, not just feelings put in to words. Each piece is very creative. Having said that, I think those who enjoy poetry for the reasons that I don’t would also enjoy Israfel Sivad’s work. So, really… it’s for everyone.

Israfel sent me a copy of this book to review because I featured one of the poems, A Straight Line Runs Through It All, last year. I have also reviewed two more of his poetry collections, The Tree Outside My Window and Indigo Glow, as well as his outstanding novel, The Adversary’s Good News.

More than a simple collection of poems, We Are the Underground delves into Israfel Sivad’s psyche to inspire you to liberate your own. With each carefully defined section, you’ll explore inner worlds and find the keys you need to unlock hidden truths. For, as Israfel Sivad demonstrates, it’s when we enter our own personal depths that we find true freedom. This poetic journey is your invitation to go deeper than you ever have before. Don’t remain content staring at what the rest of the world has already seen. Look through these inspired poems. Unravel Israfel Sivad’s “Zodiac Cycle”, which contains one poem for every astrological sign in the Western and Chinese zodiacs. Enter the underground, and discover this hidden revolution of souls. – Blurb, Goodreads

Cage (Part 14) – a new drawing

Cage is a poem in 15 parts. The poem was written using chance operations, then each piece was also created using chance methods. Each piece is drawn on a vintage magazine page, from a 1962 issue of Gent.

I’d love to hear from anyone else who uses chance in their visual or written work! Or just creators in general 🙂 Also, if anyone would like to see their own work featured on Examining the Odd, just send me a message.
