Dance. Poetry. Film. Motion. Emotion. Imagery.
Eir Lindstrom-Holmy, AKA The Moving Imagist, is a performing poet, filmmaker, writer and occasional photographer
Eir has been writing poetry since 1998, and performing her work around since 2010. She has been a featured poet on WOMR’s Poet’s Corner with host Joe Gouviea, and is taking part in the Mutual Muses V exhibition at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in March 2012, a conversation between poets and artists. Her poem ‘The Flickering’ and her photograph ‘Nudelight’ were selected for the Hyannis Harbor Arts Center’s juried exhibition, ‘The Quality of Light’ at the Guyer Art Barn in Hyannis.
Eir is also a narrative and abstract filmmaker, and the visual image forms an important part of her poetic language. Her poetry is the poetry of belief and doubt, of investigation, uncertainty, and the search for truth among the aspects. She draws many influences from the crossover between poetry and music, especially the work of Leonard Cohen and Canadian beat-box poet C.R. Avery.

Eir LindstromHolmy Poems
You live on an earthly plane You touched me there, we kissed, we came
A Cute Angle
I love your geometry: The long leanness of you
New Lovers' Prayer
Let not love faded leave us jaded Beached upon cold beds As we hide from the pain that is etched On the insides of our eyelids
Embers And Puddles
We sit together, alone in a room, and attempt conversation. The first touch has not yet broken the wall between us.
A Cute Angle
I love your geometry:
The long leanness of you
The angles you make: unmistakable
The way you inhabit your body, makes me want to share it with you
