Poetry & Art Therapy
Journey of Hearts
A Healing Place in CyberSpaceTM
In celebration of National
Poetry Day, October 22, 1998,
this beautiful combination
of both Poetry and Art, illustrates the potential
therapeutic uses of
both type of therapy.
The Poem, Sweetpea
reminds us to stop and smell the flowers,
as does the motivation
that the artist had for creating this beautiful graphic.
Poem by Sandra Romer
Graphic by Patricia Tavenner
reach out and touch
in a beautiful place
soft scent drifts in the breeze
the long winters freeze
sight to behold
color again so bold
wait for this day
come into the garden and say
flower in your usual flair
for a moment
haven't a care.

I was fortunate enough to meet
this accomplished artist during a Web Design course. She shared this beautiful
creation with me. Her inspiration for the Sweet pea is as follows:
press kits for video, writing statements, deadlines, etc.
I picked a flower or two during
my daily walks, came home, scaned it into the computer and played with
making them different and even more beautiful than they were.
Making art centers me, calms
me down, and brings me to pretty special place in the world. A place
that usually renews me."
