If you live locally, and have a chance, make sure to stop in and see all of the art that inspired these poems (or the poems that inspired the art) while it is still hanging at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in Apex, NC until 5/5/12. Egg in Nest Art Studio’s Spring show, FORWORD, combines art and text in unusual and unique ways including poetry enmeshed within the art piece, and ekphrastic poetry (poetry that comments upon another art form, for example, a poem about a painting or photograph.) Come check out what kid’s art classes and homeschool art classes for kids can build. Not only a true love of doing art, but an understanding of art and its various forms!
cobras, ruler of the world
they come with sound
they will come around
they strike with power and fury and never go down
bring havoc all around
snakes: hiss, slither, strike,
helicopter: strike, blades whir or pound, shoot, fly
Here comes the Cobra.
It comes with hissing with sound
It will strike you with fury and power
And bring havoc all around.
Pounding blades whirl in the air
And make the ground bare.
He has gotten his fill
And he slithers away
over the hill.
