Story-of-a-Mind

Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
Germany
My mother tongue is German, but the language of my soul is English. It took me some time to realize this, mind you, but by now I write in English more often than in German. My theory is that writing in a foreign language lets you skip emotional barriers that stop you from writing freely.

Poetry is the art form that contains most of my true self, as it often serves as an emotional outlet or a tool to sort through my thoughts. I received a DD and a DLD on "Old Hands" and a DLD on my poem “Earth”. (I am obviously very proud of those. ;P)

On the other hand I love the advantages of longer prose, as it allows me to unfold complex ideas and concepts into multiple directions. Currently I am working on finishing my fanfiction “The Archive” and writing my first novel “Hunting Deer”.

I love all kinds of feedback on my work! :heart:


I also have a degree in design of information and have been working as information designer for more than three years now, so you might as well call me a professional in design and interfaces. So in case I faved your picture, know that a designer did. ;)


If you would like to thank me for a :star: please be so kind and add the link to your deviation. If I have the time I often like to have a second look to tell you why I faved them. :)
    Here we have the very first (as far as we know) Fractal-Poem or Poem-Fractal! A creative collaboration between poca2hontas and Story-of-a-Mind.
    We hope you enjoy it as we certainly had fun making it ;) :love:


   

Awakening


    Awakening - Reaching- a fractal poem collaboration by poca2hontas

   


    I tear apart the blankets
    while leaping out of bed,
    god, there's a new vision to hunt down.


    You still sleep peacefully.
    But lingering in dreams is not good enough,
    we need to make them real!


    They shall not be flushed down the drain
    along with my hopes and my happiness.
    I'll go after them, spiral downward, if I need to.


    I need to wake up to my dreams, not my nightmares.



    Awakening -  Spiral - a fractal poem collaboration by poca2hontas


    I have seen the golden door,
    no boundaries will keep me.


    I don't need no lamp,
    thy word lights my path.


    I don't need an exile,
    I found paradise.

No worries ;) I will choose one of your poems when I'm back in Sept. I'm panicking as beginning August I have a 40 mins presentation to write :(

Do you mean beginning September? Don't worry honey, I know you can do it! :huggle: You could start with a simple list of things you want to get across. Next you could sort them in an order you find sufficient for explaining. And then, step by step you could do one powerpoint sheet per point on your list (or end up with two for more complicated parts). Of course that's easily said for me, as I by now I enjoy preparing/doing presentations.

You are very very welcome! :huggle: I didn't even realize how well those two fit together, but now that you mention them in one comment I feel like they are saying something very similar, just in different languages: Be free to let your art mean something, believe that it can influence the world. That's why the line But! Art should also be free to be political. Opinionated. Not only about beauty, but about issues. Free to be unpleasant, uncomfortable. rang especially true with me. I feel we do not only need more politics in our art, but also more art in our politics. A political innovation created by artists. I'm planning to write a journal about that one, but not there yet.

Yep. With more art in politics, I think more people would take notice. Unfortunately, I think they would just look at such art and think "Oooooh!", and not really think on the issues or reflect and have discussions (although that might just be my cynicism ;) ). It has to be art that shines a light on an issue, while not being propaganda.
