I chose this poem by Kaylin Haught, because it is both sacred and profane. I felt its energy and freshness and wanted to present those qualities in a calligraphic broadside. I could hear the two voices in this conversation, and decided to represent each voice uniquely. God’s voice is the bold contemporary script in gold, which was used traditionally in manuscripts to represent the divine. The seeker’s voice appears as a script that is reminiscent of handwriting in a deep everyday “fountain pen blue”. The simple layout uses the poet’s format.
