As I ran down Orchard Road this morning, I mulled over Debbie’s OneWordSunday prompt, Rules. I have, at the behest of Older Daughter who is my consultant in all things poetic, started reading & working through Stephen Fry’s The Ode Less Travelled: Unlocking the Poet Within. Reacquainting myself with metre & rhyme will hopefully give me more control; if I want to play outside the box, it would be good to first get to know the box.
When I chanced upon these temporary sculptures by Pablo Atchugarry, I had to stop and gawk. I love the lines & textures & fluidity of each sculpture as one walks around them. My time with them reinforced my pondering that in order to push limits, to refashion rules, one must first have mastery over them.
The sculpture which caught my particular attention is called Naturaleza (Nature), 2000, Statuary Carrara Marble, 282x109x80cm. I was very taken by how the various angles look like many different works? This is my contribution to Delsey Jane’s regularrandom.
The poem is my contribution to Amanda‘s September prompt to pen a limerick on the topic of Seasons. I did have every intention to try a limerick but Stephen Fry’s call to try practice the iambic pentameter got the better of me. In considering the seasons, my poetic journey is an awakening from a winter’s hibernation to a flurry of springtime activity.
To close this post, here is a mash up The Piano Guys of Vivaldi’s Winter & Frozen’s Let it Go, to celebrate the changing of seasons and the refashioning of rules.
