A second aspect of the Interpretations process included the artist interpreting an original written work, so Tracy Eichhorn created a visual response to my original writing.

The medium is a window frame with wall paper and epoxy on glass.

When I awoke it was to a song out of place.Tracy Window Frame Art Birds-crop
The solitary voice of a bird sounded
before its season.
The usual suspects waited behind the closet door:
parka, overcoat, checkered scarf from Scotland.

But I elbowed past them and chose
the flimsy jacket hiding in the back.

When the wind struck my face,
winter asked what I thought I was doing,
that it was hardly finished with me yet.
And I said I didn’t really care,
that I was a song out of place,
singing as though the end
was almost here.

    A moving poem. Particularly like the last line.
    . . . a song out of place,
    singing as though the end
    was almost here.. . . .

    Wistful and poignant, capturing our perishing moments. The exquisite artistry of Tracy Eichorn adds a special beauty that captures the feeling of the poem. What a team you make!.
