Gracias (thanks)–reverb11, day 11

Even though I’m a day behind, I wanted to skip ahead and do this one today. Will try to remember to play catchup later on.

Today’s prompt:

Appreciation and acknowledgement are corner stones to building trust and deepening relationships. Write a thank you note or poem to someone who impacted your life in 2011.

And the site for the prompt:–reverb11—gracias-thanks/

Thank you, friend!

Instead of a lengthy poem or note, I decided to create a blackout poem. Here it is.

The original article, from the April 2011 issue of Ode Magazine, is about a “Dance of Life” performance at an exhibit of recycled art. Cool stuff. I like how my camera flash lights up the middle of the page, too.
