When the tree spoke

I remember when
the tree spoke to me-
A wise, lush green thought.

i love this one. might you be willing to have this used in a derivative art work? the lines will be exactly the same, just that there may be additions in terms of background etc. you will be credited with the work, and receive a portion of royalties if it gets any!

was thinking of tee shirt, with a graphic o some sort. or a poster? or spray painted on the chief minister's car? (aaah. that would be so much fun...)

was thinking of a really provocative graphic, that clashes with the ethis of the poem. partly for the two pieces (poem and graphic) to comment on each other, partly because i love provocative. (not ALWAYS, but often)

how about i work on a couple and pass it by you?

hmm. tantra will be a hard act to follow in terms of artistic vision and or size of production. think on the lines of tantra with a hangover...:)
