This weekend, I wrote for a new poetry prompt and experimented with AI- generated visual art. Here is what I created:
In quiet slumber Warm against the fireplace Memories of a lifetime wrapped In woven wool and frosted cap Frayed edges of time, heaving In tandem with the seasons A love that often whithered, Bloomed again but never drowned In destiny’s torrential rains
Mexican visual artist Raul Cantu creates stunning generative art of foggy landscapes. He uses photography, specialty lenses, technology, AI tools, and post-processing to achieve his art.
And here my words:
Sunlight through my window Flirts with dancing dust sparkles I gaze upon the washed rays That caress with mellow light A chilly wind further creases The wrinkled skin of Wisdom I hear the creaky bones of Winter Her dewy eyes in reminiscence Of another Year in an Earthly spin
Whispers of a wicked moon Coldly slithering in my ear Another dark, restless night Closes on a frightful year Carrying in its bosom Remnants and nightmares Of strangest days gone by Apparitions looming large Filling us up with dread Of this virus-laden decade
My dreams serenade The ghostly guard In the vanishing distance Darkness emerges From behind auburn veils Of a lonely sunset; Lovers of the night Twist and slither In serpentine glee; I wake up flushed Burning from nightmares Crawling on my cold skin.
Coiled within a serpentine fear Slowly coming to life Powered by venomous anxiety Poised to strike Restless under my clammy skin I lament the loss Of kindness, integrity, liberty In this dark strife That has led our worlds astray With poisoned words
