The Delta Works sounds like a band out of Memphis, doesn’t it? But it’s really a complex engineering system to hold back the ocean in the Netherlands, and as I read about for this morning’s Wonder of the World (with Mary Lee), I had this vision of a shape poem in my head. I had shared Coggle out with some folks last week, and so I decided to dive back into the mindmapping site and create a flowchart poem of the Delta Works.
You can “read” the poem as static image here:
Or you can play around with the embedded flowchart from Coggle:
Peace (in the flow),
Again, so, so, so, so way cool! The way your mind works absolutely blows me away! I want to see inside your head I wonder what it looks like in there!
Naw. You don’t want to see inside my head. There a lot of rust and dust in there.
Thanks for the kinds words and the poetic response, Carol. I humbly appreciate it, all the time.
Dust, rust inside your head
meets the water flow chart
of your sinus impulses
and out comes
Thank you for the gift of poems. Lovely indeed.
What a day — I’m just seeing this and being blown away. It is amazing the way your form matches the content. I’ll link it in tomorrow.
Just FYI — my poem for tomorrow has exactly NOTHING to do with the Panama Canal. Just couldn’t make it happen.
I agree that you have an amazing mind and see language as an expressive art in so many different ways. Your blog name, Kevin’s Meandering Mind, is so appropriate.
