Immy-agination in Art


GloPoWriMo Day 22 Prompt is as follows:
Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that engages with another art form – it might be about a friend of yours who paints or sculpts, your high school struggles with learning to play the French horn, or a wonderful painting, film, or piece of music you’ve experienced – anything is in bounds here, so long as it uses the poem to express something about another form of art.
This provided a good opportunity for a reminder about my Immy series, the opening one of which appears on YouTube with a shortcut in my sidebar (but which I have now reproduced below). In the later instalments of the tale, the music becomes even more varied and elaborate, as do the drawings by Amanda Fieldgate.

I so admire those who can draw
And from the written word,
Produce the images I saw
Just as to me occurred.

                              And, leaving me to want to add
                               More elements to tale,
Next episodes I wrote like mad —
And drawings did not fail!

With Immy, as one may now tell,
The next step seemed quite clear,
Composing music there as well,
Which one may clearly hear.

And as my words inspired the art
Which gave so much delight,
So art to music gave a start:
The cycle seems just right!
