Poetry Plain and Poetry Lavish

A Poem:

I am a bubble

who rolls unseeing

toward the others.

We blind bump merge.

and embiggen

and release

and roll on,

a funny little bit of magic,

together.

“Together” revealed.

Zeegified version of poem above:

If you could comment on how each of the poems makes you feel or how they are different or….that would be so fine.

  1. Both rock ….
    With the written one, which I saw earlier, I read it as silent art … no soundtrack … and I was paying attention to the words, and flow. For the second one, Zeega, I lost track of the words and paid attention to the flow of ideas. And my hears were bubbling on the theme of friendship …

  2. With the first version I was captured by the word ’embiggen’ – I loved it – and it rolled round and round in my mind – in the Zeega version I focussed on ‘together’ – and together we are embiggened 😀

    1. Exactly so. I put in some gifs that are strictly ‘feel right’ choices. They don’t necessarily “make sense”. For example, the man sitting in the chair. I am sure I could rationalize that artistic choice, but I don’t really need to do that. Personally, that it. I worry about these odd emotional placeholders with my audience. They are little like cats, they don’t herd well.
