ArtsTalk Blog - 1000 Words: An Inspired Writing - Out Of Darkness

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

This spring SSAC has ushered in a new collaborative exhibit between our Visual Artists and Writers. Compelling and evocative images inspired stories and poetry of joy and sorrow, fear and longing.

Both the images and the accompanying writing will be shared in store, online, and featured here in our blog throughout the next seven weeks.

Out of Darkness
by Teri-Lyn Smethurst

Post-apocalyptic
From the deep earthy grave
Out of darkness
Tentacles shoot forth
Propagate
Twining tendrils
Clinging, Sprawling
Transforming

Kudzu, Brambles
Devils Ivy, Chocolate Vine
Honeysuckle, Creeper
Tapestry of satin foliage
Intricate, barbed filigree

Sensory overload
Verdant, Decay
Pastel red, Spicy
Azurite Blues, Sweet
Ocher, Acrid
Soft whispering wind

Nature's strange magic
Mysterious and transcendent
Rebirth of
Wilderness untamed
Resplendent beauty
Out of darkness comes light
Out of darkness is life
