Vulnerabilities by Mark Tulin – Visual Verse

Vulnerabilities – Visual Verse
โ€” Read on visualverse.org/submissions/vulnerabilities/

Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.

  1. Oh, my, aren’t we all this – sometimes, many times, all the time? Very powerful! Beginning with the prompt, which is powerful on its own.

  2. Quite an amazing piece Mark… a brilliant analogy… creatively superb

  3. That’s a winner for sure. I particularly like “tin person without an oil can”

  4. Red it just the other day. Stunning read, Mark.

    • Thank you, Bojana. Visual Verse is an interesting site with some amazing visual prompts.

      • Right?
        I’ll see more of you there, then.

      • Yes, I think so, Bojana. Perhaps not on a regular basis, but when I feel the need to shake things up. I donโ€™t normally work from visual prompts, more from ideas or things that I hear. How about you?

      • I used to be like you, Mark, but what I’ve learned is these prompts send me places I wouldn’t normally go. That’s why I love them, that is I learned to enjoy them. Besides, it’s a good writing exercise and can be quite fun.

      • Thanks, Bojana. I guess it really doesnโ€™t matter where the prompt comes from, itโ€™s connecting to a truth.

      • True. We’re surrounded by prompts, waiting for us to put them into words.

  5. Well done. Congratulations.

  6. Whoa! That can apply to us all, right? No one really shows their internal…that’s between ourselves and God. Extraordinary writing, Mark.

  7. Iโ€™m not sure we know whatโ€™s in there ourselves. Peace. โœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
