This post is dedicated to Marcy Erb of Illustrated Poetry (or how I like to call her, the Poetic Scientist!). Marcy was my first collaboration here in WordPress, and the result of one of my favorite Illustrations here. Illustrated Poetry helped me discover, poems and poets I would have never searched or find out on my own,  see wonderful collaborations, collages, and drawings. What I like about Marcy, is the way she connects blogs, creative minds, and wanderers, all together. Thanks to her, I discovered beautiful creatures, resting, chatting, chilling on her blog nest. Thank you Marcy, for your humble spirit, your knowledge and your passion for poetry (not only). Ήσυχη δύναμη, is I believe what you are..(i am not sure there is a proper English translation for this one..haha!)

Excerpt Tuesday – [in Just-] – e.e. cummings

      2. if claudio ever feels the need to visit my side of the world, let him know Pako, a new friend, will be waiting for him..he is getting sick and tired of the same neighborhood cats.over and over again, he wants a change (Pako is my black mysterious beautiful cat-he got a bit fat lately, but he is so zen, we now call him Buddha! )


  1. Thank you, Geo – and everybody! Your support and visits make Illustrated Poetry what it is. I am always telling folks what amazing writers and artists I have met through the blog and WordPress. Geo, Sunshine, and Irati – you three are inspirations to me! Thanks again!

  2. Great post, Geo and thanks for introducing me to Marcy’s blog. I looked for a translation for Ήσυχη δύναμη and found ‘quiet power’. This conjours up the idea that Marcy is modestly remarkable and I am sure I will discover this is so as I get to know her. I love the nest, enclosing her tenderly and the totem so close and looking slightly shy at the viewer. Beautiful!

      1. Koalas… fuck yeah! And possums, goannas and kingparrots 🙂 Look up antechinus, they are my favourites – tiny carnivorous marsupials that eat mice. The size of a mouse but they are hunters like a cat and they climb like possums.

      2. just checked antechinus, they do look like mice only with brighter/smarter eyes. they are tiny but they are hunters! koalas is a different story, i have a special bond with them even if i never came across with one of them in real life…when that moment comes, seeing a koala in its natural habitat or when i get the chance to hug or even talk to one, i wouldn’t mind dying, i would be complete and happy!


  3. I found Marcy and followed her after your EE Cummings collaboration. My first impression was, ooh that smile (she has a photo on her About page, couldn’t resist and left a comment) but it was also her spirit! I saw this drawing before, your colors (also your blog as a whole) are changing Geo!

    By the way, love that photo banner you have: “Time for Revollusion” (Time for Revolution against Illusion eh?!) count me in!! Now, I have a nickname for your blog… TIME FOR REVOLLUSION: A MYSTIC REUNION (under the Kalpataru tree)!!

    Some positive motivating force for you, me and all!!
