Poetry Roundup #2: A Blue Dancer and a Walk in the Rain

Poem: "Blue…Blue will dance anew / a long, slow ballet/so awkward to view. / Blue…Blue will dance. It’s true, / spinning through life / one day to renew.

“The Blue Dance”

This poetry roundup features two original artworks. The first one is a poem inspired by the 70’s song “Love is Blue” by Paul Mauriat (the words of the poem actually can go in time with part of the chorus). The art is a charcoal and soft pastel piece.



Haiku: "Walking, right here, right now. / Rain falls in the moment then. / Where does the time go?" (by Brenna Vancheyson)

“Walking Right Here” (a Haiku)

This haiku is paired with an acrylic painting on canvas. It can be about a simple walk in the rain to pass time or about the swift passage of time on a more philosophical level, if the rain is “the moment” that disappears once it hits the ground.

Poetry Roundup: The Question of Our Era and Being Swallowed by Fog


“Swallowed in the Fog” (a Double Haiku)

For this poetry roundup, we start with the double haiku above (view the text version here). I actually have no idea if there’s technically such a thing as a “double haiku.” I have, however, seen people put two haikus together before, and this one about a character who can’t go home — or feels that she can’t go home — warranted the double format.


Haiku: They stood by the sea/Someday, they would remember/this moment that passed.

“By the Sea” (Haiku)

This one was featured in a post about appreciating haikus (and their popularity on Instagram). As creating art often inspires haikus for a lot of people (or vice versa), the image is an original painting done with acrylic on canvas.




And this, sadly, is the question of our era. It is not a haiku and was previously posted here.
