Thank you to Tabatha who shared a Pádraig Ó Tuama quote:
"Poetry doesn’t say we have to choose between happiness and sadness, between grief and relief, between catharsis and solitude. Poetry knows that there can always be more than one thing happening at a time.”
With Halloween almost upon us, I've 'found' myself participating in Jone's Spooky Spectacular Found Poem challenge.
Here's my attempt using Children of the Corn by Stephen King:
I'm scared out of my mind,
can't we just go?
that question caused
a trickle of fear
something to do with religion

I'm still working through the #scbwiArtober challenge on Instagram!
I'm particularly proud of a few of my most recent attempts, especially my (eye) "Shadow", "Stormy" and "Crackle" pictures. I continue to have fun with this challenge despite my lack of art training. That's all that matters, right?
