A collaboration with a special artist - OM [one moment] meet up #22

I was sorting through some piles of paper on my desk when I came across a beautiful poem by E.  He had written it a year ago on a rainy day.  I loved the poem although he needed just one more line to finish it.  He refused.

Many months ago, I took a picture through a window that overlooks our backyard.  The image on the curtain blends naturally into the view of the yard.  I manipulated the photo, during one of my fits of Photoshop play, to the point of satisfaction but didn't know what I'd ever do with it.  When I picked up E's poem, this photo came to mind.  It was perfect as this is the window he was looking out the day he wrote the poem.  We finished the poem and, voila, a collaboration was created.  He then told me to put it on my blog.
"The nice wet grass, the light green trees,
the little spots of gray on the old burnt leaves,
The wet wet soil, the flowers that bloom
are all that I see from the view of this room."   - E. Demers, ag
