IMAGE : viridescently


No matter how many times I write or type the word calla lily, I incessantly consistently misspell it.

Calla with its double-l always incites me to do the same with lily. I must have misspelled this word a thousand times. Even while finalizing the page banner included with this month’s image, I started to wonder if every on-line dictionary and search engine had been hacked to replace lilly with lily!

Even though I could argue that lilly is implied as the middle name of a person, it isn’t so, not in this case. So as disgruntled as I was, I opted to comply with the reliable sources available to me, and however tempted I might be to debate this word’s spelling and my desire to change it, I’ll stick to the topic, which is the image.


Similar to the abstract self-portrait drawings featured in January and February, this one differs slightly in the sense that it isn’t a drawing of myself but of a person by the name of Calla.

I drew this image as a gift for my daughter’s 22nd birthday. This image, along with a poem included in a compilation of other poems written for her, is what led me to develop the website Cadent Words.
