New ideas, new perspectives, new ways of living can add vitality to existence; when we embark upon new adventures it reminds us that we are alive. . . and that life does not have to be squandered in drudgery. I try to do something new each day.

As such, I conceived poetry from a new perspective. How else can we express poetry, if we don’t use the written or spoken word? Motion picture. I imagined that I could use video as poetry, rather than words, allow the images to express and convey meaning. I felt this added a new level of sensation and ambience to poetry. Suddenly, poetry is alive. It is in motion, new senses are involved, for a fuller experience of meaning.

“Soar” was filmed in HD, select 720p or 1080p for optimal viewing.

  1. Life is to be lived, and seeking new learning and experience opportunities is a way of being alive as you say. Great attitude.

  2. Wow, visual poetry–that is something new. I love the effect you put on the seagulls to make them look like Asian water color. Thanks for helping my mind grow wings.

    • Visual poetry, that’s the phrase I am looking for to describe this new idea. Thanks for that. šŸ™‚ Yes, I wanted to try something new with poetry and using visual images to convey concepts seemed like a good idea. I’m glad you like it. šŸ™‚

      And that Asian watercolor effect, I can’t take all the credit, that was probably just one of those great happy little accidents that occur during the creative process. šŸ™‚ And you’re welcome…glad to repay in kind from reading your blog.
