This is actually an exhibition hanging in a local church. It is my attempt to create fragments of poetry to interact with images. "Seasons" is a theme to unite the images and suggest that perhaps they are telling the story of a single relationship, an ongoing conversation.

The exhibit is in a circular formation so the end loops back to the beginning, just like, well, you know...

I think rooum sums it up for me. especially lately I feel myself pulsing in and out with the natural elements. how far have we come/gone that I have to use such terms, alienated and analytic respectively?

I agree very much with Henry on the marriage (coexistence) between text and image. I think that I made before a comment to another one of your essays regarding the font of the text and its placement.
In this particular one the classic font diminishes the pictures. They cannot occupy the same place equally. The words have to either whisper or shout, or perhaps we have to read every word at a time , separately. It's a matter of sheer design of a page, probably not interesting to you that much but for me image and word are our tools.
The first and last page are superb - the white floating lines are words actually, they came from a pen with white ink and made little comments here and there. This is how the letters of the words of the poem shall flow. Perhaps not an elegant font, perhaps not same heightÖ.perhaps I talk too much.

I very much enjoy these single page image poems of yours, Don. And as a series they have a powerful cumulative effect.

The ambiguity of your images works well with your poetry. I always enjoy your essays because your approach is so different than mine. Diversity in style and POV makes this side challenge so attractive.

Iím not qualified to critique your writing but feel the DPC gallery isnít doing your work justice. When I see text on an image I think greeting card or advertisement. In book format, with opposing pages, it would be easy to separate the two. Maybe a consistent banner across the bottom? My other nitpick is your text varies in font size and color. For me, your writing is as if not more important than your imagery.

Hmmm..

Don't you have a pair of 3D glasses to go with it, so we may also spin the tale into the life-circle? C'mon...

The first image is really the standout, perhaps as it is first seen. I'm going to have my lunch now, then I'll visit again. Tomorrow I'll be back, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, continuing into the following days as well, as it is that kind of exhibit.

Thanks.

I love this first image, actually all of them. There is a sense of the melancholic, almost spiritual, or maybe a rustic ritualism. One of those ethereal pondering always hinted at in conversation but never with confirmation of subject matter. And so it shouldn't be.
