Today's picstory is inspired by a poem of Gillena Cox.
On monday I read it in her meme "Monday WRites"
and I was immediately fascinated by this idea and the poetic power of her words.
My "inner cinema" showed me a whole story behind it, and so I made this picstory.
ODE TO A BROWN PAPER BAG
there it lies, folded at the creases,
crisp, neat lines lay on the kitchen counter;
shall i unfold it, expand it, open it
to sounds of morning; filling it with
a din of twitterings,
i mean to cram all those birdsongs into
a brown paperbag; so vast this ideal
of a dawning sky, where does one begin
to draw rainbows? where does the dark
of night hang his obsidian coat?
it peters out, the earliest din;
so the opened brown paper bag
now stands on the kitchen counter
