July 3, 2010 by slpmartin folding… one of these days i’m going to fold into myself collapse into a little cube or a pile of ashes to be stored or thrown into the sea the prospect is of course not to my liking but folding into oneself is what we all do Share this:ShareTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading...

Your ideas are most novel !! This thought of folding into oneself seems so realistic, and yet so new… Loved the idea (not of folding, but of your poem)!
Hope you are having a great weekend…
Quite delightful Charles, what fun. Thank you, a lovely Sunday morning gift.
Cool animation to go with the poem and reading. Yep, we’re all going to collapse, fold… so it goes
I really enjoyed the humor in these words this morning. Isn’t it funny how the circumstances surrounding it make it either funny or tragic? Nice poem – great video…which came first, the poem or the video?
I wrote the poem first and then thought why not make a video since I have the software that I’m not using…so why not learn how to do it. 😉
What a neat video! The theme of folding up into oneself is novel and a delightful idea! Heartspell
true, so very true. Ourselves, thats the perfect escape, the perfect fold, neat and ironed, perfect company..at times.
Very nice medium for this poem.
Hi there, loved the little video for ‘folding’. Your words capture exactly the confusing inevitability that attempting to know one’s self causes.
So true! I love the video, too.
Perfect little pluck of a poem….the folding is not all bad.
The fine art of flash shape tweens 😀 Excellent poem and nice video to go along with it!
The video and the poetry recitation is beautiful… and of course not to miss the theme of the poem… deeeeeep 🙂
Now THAT prospect is very much to my liking. An origami inspired farewell to the world. How positively neat. I wish to be bent (but not broken) into the shape of angel wings. But lucky as I am I bet I’m gonna end up folded by some wise guy who will turn me into a paper pig or something equally bereft of noblesse :-))))
Interesting perspective “folding into oneself”… and nice video..
Dear SLPMartin (aka, the progressive thinker),
well all these people have beaten me, and like a sheep i’ll still follow. this was brilliant, i really loved it. i’m also a fan of the video.
Ingenius, the video illustartes the poem beautifully. I think I’ll use this to teach poetry to one of english students.
Thanks for the complement…and the comment…I truly appreciate both…Cheers!
