Wanda’s Blackbirds

These are my mental images from the poem, Thirteen Ways Of Looking At Blackbirds.  I found that it brought some deep seeded emotions to the surface.  I hope that you can identify with some of these emotions.



Blackbird by Gimcheng Long


After reading the poem for Blackbird I had many things run through my mind. Seeing the mountain in the eyes of a bird, or the three birds and the people during day and night with the feeling of the change of seasons. It feels as though I was able to picture every stanza in my own way. Using nothing but words to describe what was seen both in the poem and in this picture.
