Photo Poetry Matchup


I had the honour of having one of my pictures turned into a poem by Claudette from To Search and to Find. I have always admired Claudette and her poems. She is one person that can say so much with the least words, there is so much power to them.

She made a comment one day about one of my tractor photos and after having Lillian the Home Poet do a poem from one of my Port Arthur photos, we got to talking and I asked if she wanted to use the photo for a poem. I am so glad she did, I actually had a tear in my eye as I thought of the old tractors as older humans toiling away then left and forgotten. It reminded me of my partner Chris who just loves old tractors and collects them to hopefully restore one day…

Please read on and check out her other poetry as well. She also takes lovely photos of her area in Tasmania.

Karen from days and months has kindly offered me the use one of her gorgeous photos as inspiration for a poem, and this is how it all happened.

Earlier this week I saw Karen’s post come through my feeder that showcased a poem written by Lillian The Home Poet inspired by the photo Karen had taken at Port Arthur.  I thought it was a lovely match and left a comment on Karen’s blog.  She then blew me out of the water by offering me a photo too, as she said I had made her appreciate poetry more and more.  I was gobsmacked, because Karen takes gorgeous photos, and here she was offering one to me to write about.  Needless to say, I accepted with alacrity, in case she changed her mind.

As I said, Karen’s photos are beautiful, all of them, but the one that immediately sprang to mind…
