The Advantages of Being A Woman Artist

2.15.19 FPF Women Artists

For Found Poetry February day 15. Sometimes found poetry is simply something I “find” that is poetry to me. I found this gem at the Wellington, NZ Te Papa Museum. The picture isn’t great, it’s really hard to shoot through glass on a lit display so I’ve recapped it for you below.

Found Poetry February day 13

2.13.19 FPF graves 2

Today’s bit of found poetry is in the black-out form and derived from an information sign at an exhibit of Japanese Farm Houses in Osaka, Japan

Graves and tombs on the mountain
stone statues standing over
memorial to console dead souls
the earth, the water, the fire
the wind, the sky, the gem
symbol of the universe

When I see old buildings, art works, poetry or people I’m always amazed at the gratitude I feel to be seeing these things that have stood the test of time. I remember that tomorrow is never guaranteed. Today is all we have. Seldom have I felt this more acutely than today. Today a young friend is waging his final battle. He has fought Leukemia for over 12 years and is slipping fast. He is 14 years old. So look around you today, forgive the people you need to forgive, love the people you need to love and remember that tomorrow is never guaranteed.

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

Add to the fact that the procedure, while minor, includes the word “biopsy” and as you can probably guess, my mind has been a bit preoccupied.
