A Visual Response by Steven McCabe



An image within a poem will grab me
and set off a trail of associations…




And I love where the trail leads....




Royal Song

Warm thanks to multidisciplinary artist, Steven McCabe,
for his sensitive treatment of my 2011 poem, “The Chosen Ones.”

Such a fine series. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Thanks, Jonathan. I love Steven’s thoughts, too, at the end of his post:

“Love and gold work together on some mysterious level. There is a lot of air (and thought) in this poem and the painting depicts a scroll and throne (in the open air) beneath a sun. The idea of light informing the conscious mind influenced my variations on the original image.”
