Tender Tangle

Tonight is the public reception for the Poet-Artist Collaborative X at Crossings in Zumbrota.  Poems were selected by a jury, then artists were juried in. Each artist got to select a poem to inspire a piece for the show, but did not know who their poet was.

This is my collaborative painting, Tender Tangle.  And this was the poem that inspired it:

Early Morning

hands. Runner's thighs.
Fresh trimmed beard. Curled around
me - dreaming in two languages. Mon
It turned out that I do know the poet-  my friend Julie Hathaway!  I should have suspected--her husband Rick is French.

You are invited to attend the reception tonight--it is always great fun to hear the poets read their poems and the artists talk about their collaborative pieces. The food and wine is great, too!
