Poetry + the power of art

I´ve been wanting to make poetry-scarves
for quite a while - and now here is my first one...













It´s with a little poem of mine (Clouds sing/
almost touchable above a park bench/The vastness/
of a spring sky/is no less mysterious as deep sea/
All/ who raise their eyes above head level/could
see the fish jump - Wolken singen/zum Greifen nah
über der Parkbank/Die Weite/des Frühlingshimmels/
birgt Geheimnis wie tiefes Meer/Alle/die aufblicken
über Kopfniveau/könnten die Fische springen sehen)...













Me wearing it...

Also for a quite while I´ve wanted to see the
Louise Bourgeois/Hans Bellmer exhibition
Double Sexus, and last week finally arranged with
a friend to meet there today...













Louise Bourgeois passed away yesterday, as
most of you surely know already - so it was
with somewhat different awareness and interest
that I looked at her work...













They don´t permit photos, so I only took a hasty
one of this especially inspiring piece...


"Art is a guarantee of sanity. That is the most
important thing I have said."
(Louise Bourgeois)

Your colors and poetry go so well together literally and figuratively. What a wonderful idea.
It's wonderful to see that Louise by so many.

It's lovely. It's not clear to me from the photos... You embroidered your poem on the scarf? Or is it inspired by your poem?
