“My schedule is not 9-5, five days a week, with the weekend off.  I’m a licensed acupuncturist who often sees patients on Saturdays, so there’s no set time where I do mobile art. Especially during the winter months, I am not tooling around town in Annapolis, Maryland. But when I go grocery shopping, I’m always on the lookout for flowers to work with”.

Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry – “Hope’ ‘is the thing with Feathers’

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is a poem entitled “Hope” ‘is the thing with feathers’ by one of America’s greatest and most original poets of all time, Emily Dickinson.

“As with many of her poems, Emily Dickinson takes an abstract feeling or idea – in this case, hope – and likens it to something physical, visible, and tangible – here, a singing bird. Hope, for Dickinson, sings its wordless tune and never stops singing it: nothing can faze it. In other words (as it were), hope does not communicate by ‘speaking’ to us in a conventional sense: it is a feeling that we get, not always a rational one, that cheers us even in dark times of despair. Indeed, hope is sweetest of all when the ‘Gale’ is busy raging: during turbulent or troubled times, hope is there for us. And hope can withstand just about anything: even in times of cold comfort (‘the chillest land’) or in foreign or unfamiliar climes (‘on the strangest Sea’), hope remains. And hope never asks for anything from us in return. It provides comfort and solace but does not require anything back”. source: InterestingLiterature

Today, I am matching the mobile artwork by @tankaqueen – Alexis Rotella to this poem. You can follow her on Instagram here @tankaqueen
