Su Blackwell – artist inspired poems

These are three short poems inspired by specific pieces of  art by Su Blackwell, a paper sculpture artist from the UK whom I truly admire.  Her work is both amazing and inspirational.  Much of it tells a story even without words. You can see more of Su’s fabulous work at various Su Blackwell art links on-line.

Paper Tree Nook

Paper Tree Nook

I think I’d like to live in a book

Build a little house

in a paper tree nook

Hang a little light 

outside my door

Stay inside and write poems

for ever-more.


Dancing Paper Ladies

Dancing Paper Ladies

Dancing paper ladies

and trees made of words

dance across the pages

in the night,

Soon they will fold

right into the pages,

Making stories come to life

By morning’s light. 


The Story

 Our Story 

I have tried for years to write our story. 

Sometimes its just a case of finding words that fit the
unlikely circumstances and events to be told.

Other times its finding any order or flow to sensibly relate
the rocky tale.

Perhaps premature partings just result in little stories with big holes in them.
