Poetry Pairs 2: 3:15 Poem & “Serenity” painting by Julieanne Case

2013 315 Experiment

Ventura CA

He was only spring.
He left his blue chair so soon.
His family weeps.

Garden seat in sun
waits for anyone with time
to sit for a spell.

The painting by Julieanne Case (click on the image to see it large then click back to get back here!) and the 3:15 experiment poem by me is currently on display at the Ventura County Government Center on Victoria and Telephone Road in a collaborative art exhibit. Our pieces are on the third floor by the elevator with good light so people can read the poems while waiting.

The opening reception was yesterday and we learned that we received an honorable mention for this submission. Yay!

We submitted five pieces to the show and three were selected: “Water Ballet” with a 3:15 poem, “Serenity” above, and one with calla lilies called “Plum Surrounded” and an adaptation of this poem which I’ll post soon. The show was very strong, so I’m very proud that we did so well.

How did I end up being part of this show? Well, Julieanne contacted me in early August to see if I’d be interested in collaborating with her on this show—to provide poetry to go with her paintings. She sent me some paintings and links and I offered to come see the “real” thing. I visited her studio and took a number of iPhone photos. Since I was in the midst of the 2013 3:15 Experiment, when I woke to write, I called to mind paintings and came up with these haiku. These poems above are also in response to the recent unexpected death of the son of a friend of mine.

Rest in Peace and Serenity, Noah “Zac” Bickler. These poems are for you and your loved ones.

    Julieanne Case and I won an honorable mention for our collaboration. The show is up now and through Oct. 8 at the Ventura County Government Center and students can visit the show and write about it for extra credit or to help make up an absence.
