  2. Hello SoundEagle,
    I love what you have done with Gypsy Delight.. 🙂
    The graphics have a sort of ’70s look, which suits the “bohemian”-style verse.

    Are you interested in your readers developing this poem further? Oh well, it’s just a thought: “Interactive or collaborative poetry” —you and I have tried it in the past with some success. Well, congrats on your fabulous website and keep wowing us with your content!

    • SoundEagle and SeaTurtle rhyme with each other!

      Thank you, SeaTurtle, for the encouragement and compliment. As for your question, there is undeniable poetic passion and vision in you that will undoubtedly warm and fill the hearts of readers through “Interactive or collaborative poetry”.

      By the way, Bill Forest somehow located and befriended SoundEagle on Facebook. He still remembers you.

      Returning to the central focus of this post, the simultaneous presentation of art and poetry, it is SoundEagle’s pleasure to inform you that the post has been extended. In the vein of “interactive or collaborative poetry”, which originated as a thought of yours nearly five years ago, this extension consists of a longer poem and graphics entitled “🦅SoundEagle & SeaTurtle🐢”. Please enjoy, both texturally and pictorially, because we believe!

      • SoundEgle I don’t think it was a thought of mine. I thought it was an idea of OURS which we acted on: there was a stanza or two of Gypsy Delight which I wrote in my attempt to write a poem collaboratively with you.

        Here is part of the discussion (20/01/2010):

        ‘I am sharing this with you now… do you like its symmetry (in rhyming scheme?) Would you prefer “entwine” to “collide or collude”
        in the 2nd stanza?

        You could also choose a title for this poem…this would preserve the symmetry.

        Swirls of gypsy delight
        Usurp my gothic knight
        Reign not the horse’s flight
        For I seek thy crested might

        ***

        Pearls of rampant bonds
        Entwine with verdant fronds
        And cast their primal woes
        In ethereal starship throes
        Of effervescent rush
        or Nature’s ploy untouched

        ***

        Beguiling and beguiled
        Bright Esther stark and mild
        Through Infinity quips wild
        For they bore a hybrid Child..’

      • Thank you for your prompt reply and creative response, 🐢SeaTurtle. The original poem concerning 🦅SoundEagle as well as the recently published longer version concerning both 🦅SoundEagle & 🐢SeaTurtle are both entirely born of SoundEagle’s creative thoughts, not of our collaboration. It began as a poem that I composed much earlier and first mentioned to you in an even earlier email dated 20 Jan 2010 at 5:42pm, 51 minutes before your abovementioned email. The content of my earlier email is quoted here as follows:

        Swirls of gypsy delight
        Usurp my gothic knight
        Reign not the horse’s flight
        For I seek thy crested might

        Based on my own poem above, I shall name my caladium as “Gypsy Delight”.

        Attached are photos of the caladium taken even more recently . . . . .

        The ‘collaborative’ part happened later, when you appended your two stanzas to my poem. All of these are indeed splendid and poetic interactions between you and I.

        What I meant in my previous comment is that the newly composed longer version of the poem concerning both 🦅SoundEagle & 🐢SeaTurtle is the result of my current response to your phrase “interactive or collaborative poetry”, which you thought about and typed in your comment here nearly five years ago, as quoted below:

      • The ‘hybrid Child’ could be anything: a work of art, an idea, a philosophy or culture. Don’t think biological reproduction here…

      • Thank you for adding a SeaTurtle stanza to Gypsy delight, it’s quite lovely in its symmetry with the first stanza, and I particularly like my “fluid whim”…

        At the same time I feel I may be neglecting to critique thr art work that accompanies the poetry…so more in coming days as I have just read about the World Illustration awards exhibition in the Guardian:

  4. (Reposting this from elsewhere..)
    “Swirls of Gypsy Delight..”

    This first phrase is one of my favourite “word-bites/bytes.” Forgive me if I sound overly exuberant when I say that I consider the whole four-line verse a masterpiece, SoundEagle. I don’t offer praise for verse easily. I enjoy this poem because of its originality and imaginative word collocations.

    “Swirls” (a “luscious” word in itself that rolls in your mouth..) “Gypsy Delight” (conveys all the beauty, power and freedom of Art). And rich, bohemian pleasure.. You cannot tell if the poet is male or female.. Does the poem have a title SoundEagle? Do poems need titles anyway? This might be an interesting discussion point..

    The artwork that accompanies the poem is worthy of a separate critique… well done! Thank you for sharing it all in such a beautiful format. Many, many thanks for your dedication.. hugs,Turtle.

    • SoundEagle is gypsy-delighted by your exuberant praise and hugs, whilst revelling in the imagery of indulgence, the swirls of smooth chocolates and luscious satins, the absence of boundaries and stereotypes affording freedom and androgyny, via which there could be more room for transcendental truth and beauty.

      This poem probably could do without a title. Enthusiastic readers can supply whatever title(s) that they deem to be commensurate with their nature and fancy. Besides, it would seem that anyone of the four lines in the verse could be a title, though the first line, or simply “Gypsy Delight”, might arguably be the best candidate. Do you agree?

      • I do agree on “Gypsy Delight” being a good title. That is what I call the poem anyhow.

        But I especially like the option of allowing each reader to assign the title that best suits their mood, inclination or fancy. In other words having no titles affords the readers this freedom. Artistic, spiritual and social FREEDOM is what this poem means to me… and that is why I love it.

      • Well put, SeaTurtle! SoundEagle is simultaneously enthralled and touched by both the validity and vitality of your sensitivity towards those categories of FREEDOM, even when such FREEDOM seems to have been well encapsulated or reflected by the diminutive stature and brevity of an untitled, illustrated poem.
