My first little art card to inspire a poem! (Don’t worry, it’s quite short):
The eyeball could not recall when, or how, it had ended up
on the floor and in this quiet corner, away from the worst of
the hard light of the sun.
As the years passed, its bottom gently
flattened and inside, the twin jellyfish circled
lazily, much as they had always done.
For a monochromatic swap at illustratedatcs.com, and a prompt with the ambiguous phrase “eyeball jellyfish” – which led to this card and this poem. Here’s the rest of the set!
I’m not sure it’s strictly monochromatic, what with the red-violets (verging on pink!) and the blue-violets, as well as black and white. But limiting colors is always a fun challenge! The prompts for these three were, “masquerade”, “owls in hats and/or cats in hats” and “octopus”. Thanks for stopping in! (No progress pics – but I’ll have some next time.) :)
