Being a scientist by training, poetry hasn’t always come easy to ol’ Nana Lou. Thanks to our week one #burgeron106 assignment I’ve had an opportunity this week to practice with a 5 Card Flickr story. I’ve seen others grapple with this assignment in the past. And it was nice to know I wasn’t alone right here in the family. Mama Boo shared her struggles and story with the rest of us which inspired me to give it a go.
You are dealt five random photos for each draw, and your task is to select one each time to add to your building set of images, that taken together as a final set of 5 – tell a story in pictures. I modified this a bit by telling the story created by the photos in the form of a poem. I find this helps me to get out of my logical mind (what I still have left after a 100 years…) and come from a deeper more intuitive place. I even chose the pictures based on my intuition. When finished it just feels right.
If there is one thing about ol’ Nana that’s that I’m resilient.
A promise of beauty, love and eternal life
