I struggled with a poem for the April issue of Visual Verse, mainly due to my impaired eyesight after two cataract operations. I’m currently wearing reading glasses borrowed from my husband, which are the wrong prescription but do make a bit of a difference.
The image in the May issue, Volume 9 Chapter 8, is an unusual one by Reed Geiger. The fabulous writing, poetry and prose has been inspired by the use of colour, light and shadow, and the two figures, with only one hour to produce 50-500 ekphrastic words. I recommend reading everything, starting at page 1. My poem is on page 37 and, if you want to read it first, here is the link to Neon Days.
