Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Fantasy: As 2018 wound down, the Poetry Princesses thoughtfully pondered how to begin the new year…
Reality: Thankfully, Tricia emailed us all last week and said, basically, Ack! Let’s write a poem to one the four images I’m sharing. Whew! Good thing she did that, or we likely would have missed this month!
One of the images was of this alphabet, and it made me think about how even just the different way a letter looks physically makes it feel different to me, emotionally. Bold, italics, serif or san serif…all these things make a difference. And then I wanted to know what different parts of letters were called and I found this page: https://www.designersinsights.com/designer-resources/anatomy-of-typography/ I was fascinated by all the human body names we give to letter parts. Letters are us. Stories are us. Our language is us. And that led to my poem below, a first draft, but one that I’m fairly satisfied with as a first draft. So…that’s a good start:>)
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
