Collage Poem for a Sketchbook II

Many shared the
impatience.
Only half for me;
half to show suspicion
properly paid for.

This poem is from my Small Artist Sketchbook 2018. Similar to my previous Large Artist Sketchbook 2017, I created artwork in a book over a period of time, 2016-2017-2018, and later wrote poems to go with each image. This book contains only haiku, shadorma, or tanka. All poems were published in the collection Clean Canvas in spring 2018 (without their illustrations).

In the sketch book, the poems are on the facing page for each illustration – here I am only showing you the illustration, with the text beneath it. Each poem is numbered according to my master list and the date refers to when I wrote the poem, not when the illustration was done.

Read and enjoy, and thank you!

Who built you
this group of columns
intended
to support
a roof of what components
if any at all?

Oh this vivid shore
where I find myself at home
where intense belongs
where outsize emotions fill
the sky to overflowing

I have found
the exact right place
where I fit
just waiting
for me to come along here
and step into place.

How you hide
inside the others
Appearance
fragmented
Why must you do it? Why not
let me see your face?

Words somebody said
one time. Still floating around
right now. You hear them
in some interior ear
that you didn’t know you had.

The small house.
Blinds drawn. Door shut tight.
The patterns
vibrating
in the landscape. The small house.
Its eyes shut. Sleeps on.

Note: if you follow my art blog, you may recognize this image as yet another rendition of the little white house that I have such a fondness for, and I don’t know why, because it’s just a house on street. I took its picture and ever since… it has continued to reappear…Look here  for the art blog post discussing it and showing other images I’ve made.
