Unlike a lot of the other students, I kept seeing very specific physical images rather than the deeper mental feelings that the words produced. For example, for E, I kept seeing rocky beaches on a windy, gray day, or for F I could only picture an elk or reindeer staring back at someone in the middle of a starry, snow-filled night. I tried to collect some of the images that I saw/ felt whilst reading through the manuscript.

I like how specific some of your images are. In imagining them while looking at the words of the poem, I can definitely see how they all fit with certain poems. All of the rocks that you have scattered throughout the moodboard really capture the elements of danger and sharpness found within Meg’s poetry.
I appreciate when someone can convey their thoughts and emotions visually like a picture book, and this is no exception. You’ve chosen a fair mix of comforting and foreboding images to interpret Matich’s poetry.
