Illo Friday: Escape


     And my head is spinning
   Lost my grip
 Lost my

     Away as far as my mind
 As far as my feet
Couldn't take

     To escape all realities
   To an endless sky
 To boundless

     The eternal pain
   To never stumble
 Never deluded

note: also escaping from my traditional impromptu poems and illo thru one medium, i posted a poem i made back in October 2004 and a pic of my pc dashed with some personal touches. hope this one qualifies for IF ..oh, and yes, being in cyberspace is indeed my escape. Please click image for a better view.

It's a desktop inside a desktop inside a desktop! Not making comments especially to Adorable Little Rodents in the TTLB Ecosystem BUT this poem sends chills down my now mousy whiskers!

hey, atomic!

i'd certainly say, this does qualify! many of us would also agree that sitting in front of a pc is an escape. nice poem, too!

for whatever reason, sometimes i have trouble accessing your blog - sometimes it's slow or freezes up, or i can't see the pictures that you post - so if you never hear from me again, just know i'm still checkin' your work out from time to time.

'til next illo fri - kg

Stellar Blog work!! What an incredible writer you are!! Great designer too. I'm just blown away with how cool your blog looks. I had no idea a Blogger 'blog' could look so dramatic!! Fabulous poetry too. Hope you're planning on publishing a book someday. I have only had the guts to put a few of my very own poems on my blog. I'm in awe of your courageous and generous spirit.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and leave a note. The 'drawing' is not mine, it is by Wendy Page, 2003. From the We'Moon '05 Calendar. Same with the 'Temple Poem.' Since today is the full Harvest Moon, I'm feeling very spiritual and thought I'd celebrate that in my blog.

I'll be back on a regular basis to visit and enjoy your oh-so-creative spirit.

Blessings to you this Harvest Moon. Kim

Interesting effects with the pic.

The poem was a good out-loud read too. I like the visual effects you did with this.

anonymous.. not commenting on Adorable Little Rodents? lol, how come? was lined as a Marauding Marsupial for 3 days only tho.. hihi.
Well, this rodent would like to see those whiskers wiggle! lol

kg.. wow, thanks for the comment, glad this qualified. and ty for informing me about the 'freezing' thought it was only my slow connection. well, made some adjustments now. the list of "women blogroll" is making it slow i guess. now placed it in the footer. see yah next friday!

Kim.. think the Moon's rays brought me to your place. 8) thanks for your kind words. the idea of a book is kinda phobic for me tho. maybe one day if a publisher stumbles upon my works *blush* But for now i guess, an escape from my daily routine squeezes out creative juices for me to share here.

btw, placing you at my links..

Liz.. i like to play with words as much as with colors and shadows. the images playing may reflect a hidden meaning sometimes. glad you like it tho, thanks for your nice words 8)

hi velvet, thanxx for visiting my blog again...I lived and worked in the Philippines for a few years and it was great! May you suggest some PINOY art blogs worth visiting like yours? Salamat!

I like the touches you made to the photo. I, too, often escape through my computer. Your poem this week was really compelling, and was I believe the right choice for the topic. I love the word choices you made for overall action of each verse. Well done!

aynaku.. thanks, and its ok 8) well there are lots.. but let me give you a link to one of my Pinoy faves Objects & Pixels. and you can check my links on the sidebar too 8)
