Sounds for TOP


Totally Optional Prompts is looking for Sound this week.

For several years, I read at local venues and created audio CD's to accompany each of my poetry chapbooks. After a lengthy bout with a respirator for pneumonia, I'm sure I sound too scratchy to read in public.

I found Wendy Videlock on the Poetry Foundation website and listened to North of Mist several times before I Googled and read any number of her poems. This one remains my favorite. Ms. Videlock is a Colorado poet and has received numerous awards and accolades.

North of Mist




This image is a digital watercolor created in Adobe Elements 5 and with Bamboo Fun.

As one who has tried his hand at digital prints, I find these images simple and compelling.

Dear Sue,
The audio was unavailable for me.
I will see about getting some of her work. Thank you for introducing me to a new to me poet.
I am so very grateful the ventilator kept you going until you were able to breathe on your own.
Scary stuff.
Sherry

I just experimented with reading one of my poems on my blog. I think we all hate our voice.
