Fueled
by a million
man-made
wings of fire –
the rocket tore a tunnel
through the sky –
and everybody cheered.
Fueled
only by a thought form God –
the seedline
urged its way
through the thickness of black –
and as it pierced
the heavy ceiling of soil –
and launched itself into outer space –
no
one
even
clapped

Colophon

I gel plate printed paper with the idea of a ‘rocket’ in mind, as part of the Inktober Challenge. To be honest I wasn’t sure where I was going to end up with this idea – but after a good nights sleep and fresh eyes, the paper reminded me of one of my most favourite peoms – ‘Fueled’ by Marcie Hans.

With some simple folding and white pen ink, my gel plate printing ‘play’ paper has become a small book where I can easily access and read something very special.

Completed October 2020.
