Poets take leaps in their work



If my leaps of association aren't enough, here is "Leaping Into the Unknown: The Poetics of Robert Bly's Deep Image" by Kevin Bushell.

Update:
March 11 - In the comments Ariel asks if there's a version of this where I fall down. Fair enough. Sometimes leaps don't go as planned...

Even better when one has low-speed high-speed. The action is paused, and paused. The fun leaps on, and on, and on.

Berlynn said...

Thank you, dear B, for that amazing visual of how poets can take leaps in their work. I, too, have always wondered about it. Alas! I need wonder no more. LOL!

I like speeding it up and setting it to Vaudeville music.

Aaaahhh...choke...spuff...sputter (there goes my coffee) aha...aha...haha...hahahhahahaheeheeheehee. Way too funny :-)

Ha! You guys should've been out there with me yesterday. Perfect weather. Well, it was warm, so the snow was a bit heavy for dancing...

Tracy, where did you get that tea? It's heavenly! I must stock up on it when I'm there for Talking Fresh. I spilled some when Tucker scored in OT last night. What a game!

Ariel Gordon said...

Do you have a version of this where you fall down? I think I'd like that one better...

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! You would. Actually H does have video of me catching a toe yesterday. Not a pretty sight and rather embarrassing for a seasoned snowshoer, but hey, I'll ask H to pull out the clip and I'll post it just for you, Ariel.

Tracy Hamon said...

Now, that's a leap.

Glad you liked the tea which came from the coffee shop at the Book and Briar Patch.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Then to the Book & Brier Patch I will go!

Sadly, I'm starting to think that's not a leap or a fall, but rather a glaring example of sprung rhythm.

Ariel Gordon said...

Yay! Falling down!

(Falling down is almost as fun as smiting...)

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ariel, your wish is my command, at least when it comes to falling. I'll let someone else fulfil your smiting needs.

Uh, regarding the last video, I'm a bit uncomfortable with where YouTube placed the arrow...

Leona said...

A new genre, arrowflicks, which make arrow placement an intentional part of the movie.

Thanks for being willing to fall down in public. I myself do it all the time; it makes the people around me feel so good.

Rhett said...

This clearly has been your most awesome of posts.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Arrowflick! Ha! Yes, Leona, this arrowflick will be a blockbuttster.

Thanks Rhett!

Falling isn't the worst part of that last video. Why didn't anyone tell me that jacket makes me look like a potato?

Rhett said...

Pretty much the most amazing post you've come up with to date.

Rhett said...

Okay, I didn't mean to post that twice... sorry. I thought it didn't work the first time... ugh... embarassing...

Maybe you can delete it and this one...

Brenda Schmidt said...

Let me get this straight. You want me to delete a comment in which you use the word amazing to describe something that I did?
