Small. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

For my photography and poetry prompt this week, I doing things a bit different around here. 

If you read my post yesterday about my 3 goals for the coming year, I said that I wanted to make more use of my YouTube channel and I am putting that into practice, starting with my poetry.

First, the image is one of my favourites of Grace. She was 3 at the time and this photo was taken as we walked into the church at my brother’s wedding. You wouldn’t have known it to look at her, but she had just gotten over an awful case of chicken pox. 

This week, I am reading my poem ‘Small’ set to a montage of photographs of Grace aged 3 and under. I really think it helps people hear the tone of the poem better and makes such a difference! I would love to know what you think.

    I don’t think I’ll ever have the confidence to read mine aloud but I love that you do. Wonderful. As are Grace’s curls! πŸ™‚ xox

    I love this version of your poetry, Victoria! It changes the whole dynamic of the poem because of being read aloud. There’s so much more emotion and tonality to it. It’s quite lovely πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing another collection of photos and beautiful words with us.

    That’s a lovely poem and seeing the photos and hearing your voice really do enhance it.
