planted trees in my graveyard

writing about death



Illustration description: A page sprayed and streaked with flowing pigment, caused by taking a spray bottle to a page of greys and a black marker. The colour is a tangled nest, darkest at the edges and lightening at the center, but strung with vine and branch-like trails left by flowing drops. The words of the haiku occupy the central part of the image, blurred, scratchy, and disjointed, mostly rendered in water-soluble marker, but finished with an acrylic marker.

I am mostly a visual artist, but I like to create "found poetry", specifically daily haiku made from the statuses of my Facebook friends. It was my Mom who started this, and officially passed the responsibility onto me when she became too busy.
