The fact that poetry works so effectively with visual media is an interesting one...the sound of the thing...or an unequal marriage...where does the 'power' weigh in this relationship? Is the inclination to judge one medium as the one that drew attention...and the other that kept that attention?

Honestly, I think I have seen my 14 year old granddaughter "share" the first one on Instagram.  I didn't think poetry, I thought words of wisdom with a doodle.  I didn't bother to find out who the author of the quote was.   I don't think of these as poetry but as slogans for life.  The kids are finding them and sharing them on social media. Not just kids, I see this type of slogan with a visual shared by motivational sites and by friends of all ages, mostly women.
