WORLDS WITHIN WORLDS: Numbered Shot List
Every cranny, nook and nub with wondering eyes abuzz with being
Where once was but a molehole, gapes a portal, tunnels teasing
Each tree I see is home to imps or nymphs, hobbits or hermits
Why there are homes for gnomes and forts for fairies - yes indeed!
Cubby holes and hiding huts in weeping willow dens
I tiptoe past the tower where the princess sure is hidden
While the firth it froths and fizzes, tendrils stretching to the shore
In its depths swim secret selkies, kelpies, mermen, maids and more
Instead the inky black unveils a sea of twinkling lights
That muses mingle with the mosses, grasses, ferns and bark
NOTES: Feel free to refer to the poem for other allusions. Possible visuals could include tight close-ups of trees, grass, leaves, etc.
Let’s build up a repertoire of visuals for Metaphorest’s poem “Worlds Within Worlds” - contribute your macro photography or cinematography, image records, and animations.

GRAPHIC ARTISTS: Remix visuals from the site to go with with each of the lines.
CINEMATOGRAPHERS: Shoot Video Footage that corresponds to each of the lines.
ANIMATORS: Take visuals from the site and animate them into Cinemagraphs, etc..
CALLING ALL WRITERS!
We’re gonna make a Montage-driven Short Film based on the idea that trash is just a label, because when you throw trash away it doesn’t go away - it’s just somewhere else.
Here’s how you can contribute:
WRITERS: Write a poetic piece of text about how when trash is thrown away it doesn’t disappear, it just goes some place else.

Tiny Story REmix by MattConley
I caught a thought
I had thought to think.
And, in thinking,
I lost the thought
I had caught.
Text by HeavyPetal
A kiss in a crowd.
We whispered it loud.
Fingers linked lightly -
We’re shy, but we’re proud.
