Healing, Kiss, and Art Show

Healing with art, inspiration with poetry...
"Kiss"          Copyright 2013, Delorse Lovelady
      Inspired by:    KISS, by Sylvia Pollack, June 30, 2011

Trellised tomatoes,
     splayed across the south
side of the house,
     get drunk on their own sweet juices
stew in them,
     grow so exuberantly after dry days
their skins split
     like opened zippers, and we,
in an act
     of kindness and forgiveness,
pluck them
     off their vine, offer them
to each other's lips.

 Cancer Lifeline Art Show
I have the honor of having two collages in this show sponsored by the Northwest Collage Society and Cancer Lifeline of Seattle.  Women participating in Cancer Lifeline writing groups write poetry for healing,  They shared their poetry with members of the Collage Society who selected one to three poems, and then created art pieces from the inspiration.  I selected Kiss by Sylvia Pollack and Never Pruned by Nancy Meier.  A portion of the sales from these poem inspired collages are donated to Cancer Lifeline.
April 8 -- June 24, 2013
 Reception on Thursday April 11 from 6-8pm 
Dorothy S. O'Brien Center
