Nature Poetry Box

       Nature Poetry Box                   Nature Poetry Box 2
I felt inspired by Autumn this year.  I wanted to create something with leaves and words combined together. After some research about leaf resist, I found I could make a box about the  personal impressions of Autumn. It is interesting looking for different leaves, searching out the unusual and picking up what is generally discarded... the ultimate in recycling with nature.
These leaves would be used on my box.. they happened to be a piece of Devonport also, a place generally considered more urban than rural, however, this area of Plymouth has some fantastic trees, even Walnut  leaves were found. 
Dan, my tutor at college, suggested  help  with the technical, as I put slip over the leaves which were placed on my box. Afterwards, I applied the words about Autumn, pressing in printers block lettering.
Autumn was caught in clay this time.. crackle and crunch.

The Poem for the Poetry Nature Box

Swirls of leaves dropping,

Mush on earth,

Under burnished sunlight.

Crackle and Crunch.

Blown across pavements and roads

October and November

Brown mixtures twirl

Clumps form

At the feet of trees

Branches elongate

Stretching to touch silvery grey skies

A prelude to cold weather approaching.
