fOOt note

meaning of things

should one explain
the meaning of a picture
that meaning
your meaning
my meaning
our should one leave it open for many meanings
explanations

 

lets write with meaningless words

perhaps art is about
freedom to interpret art in any way you yes you
the observer the reader the audience
want to see to hear to read art
maybe not

research for a poem

deceptive nonsense
worthless nonsense
nonsense talk
written in artistic poem
making some sense
but not totally
as it uses words no longer used in the language of today
can you write a poem 
by using letters no longer used today

when a letter becomes a piece of ART

well i did
using words no longer used
my drawing skills are not good enough
for the beautiful letters
so old words 
in-between words of the time
no you will not read the poem here
but once you do read it
you find here a footnote
with the meaning of the words
as they are lost 
and forgotten
yet so beautiful

FOOT NOTES TO THE POEM ON PAGE 52
the title is ‘Taradiddle‘ which means senseless talk 

it is about ‘aquabib’ which means waterdrinker used 1731 – 1883
blateration‘ which means babbling used 1656 – 1864
nidifice’ which means a nest used 1656
‘dacryops’ which means the watery  eyes 
‘zucca’ which means gourd 
‘anaphia’ which means loss of sense
zaffre’ colour made with impure cobalt oxide
‘yelve’ which means garden fork used from around 1000 till 1886
‘Waratell’ is made up by the writer of the book and is a combination of two languages and has no meaning
(the words without a year are from a list of obscure words)

SO NOW YOU CAN READ THE POEM AGAIN SEEING PERHAPS
A DIFFERENT MEANING

This footnote came into being after a long conversation with one of the editors, a more than 3 hours video call (corona you know)
To make the footnote in the book would look sad so there comes a link to this blog so people can read this if they want. 
In this way you can read the poem first without an explanation and than with it. Look at how your mind or your feeling will fill in the meaning of the poem.

Many of the photo are not straight away clear, you will ask yourself “what am I looking at” well they are all feathers. Together with my camera i can create a picture of what i see laying around. No explanation will be given and certainly not my own secret ways of creating them photos.

like this one which is not a feather but still found it laying around
