  4. It looks phenomenal - especially the red letters, heart, drop of blood and fullstop at the end in all the black and white.

    1. I don't think I'll do another one like it. Some words were really hard to find and I didn't want to just get them out of a dictionary.

  7. So wonderful -- LOVE the poem, love how the words march across the page and how they visually represent their meanings, sort of visual onomatopoeia (how the heck is that word spelled???). Great piece, Crafty.

    1. Thank you for noticing and the little touch of onomatopoeia (it has given me myopia).
