Excerpt Tuesday - Wheelock Quatrain and Collage Collaboration!

I’m pleased to present the second collage by Ms. Kerfe of the fabulous Method Two Madness blog. She is making collages inspired by a series of poems I assembled that revolve loosely around the theme of “science.”  This one is based on John Hall Wheelock’s (1886-1978) quatrain “Earth.” Both the poem and collage are fantastic – enjoy! 41 more words
