A collection of phrase poems | 2010 – 2016
I started writing this collection as a freshmen in college. Originally, it was a single poem, but I got stuck & left it to marinate. Over the next handful of years, I'd pull it out every once in a while and work on it. Eventually it became clear to me that each stanza of the original poem worked better on its own, as a collection of phrase poems. However, I continued to struggle with the wording & how I wanted it all to look in its final form. Finally, 6 years after the first draft, it all came together - the words & the hand lettered presentation. You can't force the process. Some things just take time (as in years) to reach completion. But who knows? They may continue to evolve.
PS. There is still one stanza/phrase poem in the works!
