Day 757 March Doodle Daffodil Poetry

Daily Note March Doodle

Every day, a photograph, a poem.

My CLmooc friends doodle every day. Today’s prompts from Lisa Bardot’s #makingarteveryday continues the monthly focus of “Grow” with the theme of “Grow Your Style” and today’s project is “one thing – two ways.” We create two illustrations of the same object in two different ways or styles.

I chose comic/pop art and cubism styles to illustrate daffodils, with the help of Lisa’s Art Styles website.

Brushes: Lisa Bardot Brushes: Midcentury, Scratchy Art, and Imperfect Patterns; Procreate Decimals

This inspired my poetry today, which was inspired by my friend Charlene’s post for Slice of Life, which applied a 5-4-3-2-1 format. I loved how her post’s format / reflection explained how joy, family, and Earth’s bounty fulfill her life.

So I considered making up a poem based on my modified format, the numbers representing the number of words in each line, and each line presenting a different facet of the moment of the included picture of daffodils:

5-4-3-2-1

5 words: explain this moment
4 words: share what had passed before
3 words: what’s next
2 words: of action
1 word: emotion

I wrote two poems, each with their own photograph of the joyous wonder in my springtime garden and the second poem reversing the order of the poem format.

Spring’s Joyous Wonder

Spring daffodils declare each morning
Shedding winter’s dull brown
Inviting bumble bees
To dance
Joy

Wonder
Pausing, pouncing
Kitten’s swat misses
Bumble bee exploring daffodils,
Spring’s creatures bloom each morning.
