As Below So Above by MirachRavaia As Below So Above by MirachRavaia
There was no poetic prompt at B2MeM today, so I wrote a speculum [link] for the #formfindsfunction challenge [link]

I also wanted to submit the photo for some time, but it lacked something. Now I know what :)

vision: the artist delivers their vision effortlessly and without overkill with the use of language and form. the reader sees a tree in it's entirety in the words alone. this is mirrored beautifully with the image.

originality: there are poems (and photos) aplenty about tress, but the artist succeeds in being original in the presentation of both the words and image as well as their commingling.

technique: the photo gives us the entire tree, though not in a conventional perspective, suggesting the roots with the limbs reflections. VERY well done.
as to the poem: i created the speculum form and i have to say it is executed flawlessly here. the reflection in the middle couplet, the mirrored rhymes of the 7, 3 ,and 2 syllable lines of the top and bottom stanzas...the artist, here, has taken the form and used to its highest potential. truly amazing.

the image and words are put together in a beautiful and highly effective whole.

impact: simply stunning.

Oh, this is just gorgeous...!
The natural beauty of the photo - gleaming with so intensive colours, almost moving in the warm play of lights...
Makes me feel just like being right there, smelling the sweet scent of the autumnal forest...

And its calm atmosphere created by your balanced, profound and beautiful words really gives me an impression of the layer behind / through it...

Like your transposition - grounding / the tranquility of senses and crowning / the play of thoughts - is even so complete that it has found its way into the viewers reflection...

Thank you so much for sharing!! :clap:
