A poetic journey through my mind

Wow. Sound familiar to anyone? 😉 Awesome image work and very sense-filling. 🙂


I’ve always been jealous of painters –

With canvas and brush

They capture in one image

What may take thousands of words

To describe.

Each stroke of a pencil

Shows love, patience, or fear,

And there are more shades of color

In the visual spectrum

Than words to describe them.

But even with a brush

It takes a true artist

To make you hear

The haunting melody of a violin

Played by a grieving father

As his daughter’s body grows cold

With the setting sun.

It takes a true artist

To make you feel, through sight,

The gentle caress of a spring zephyr

Against a child’s face

Versus the deceptive calm

Before a Summer storm.

Maybe painters are not so lucky after all –

A poet’s phrase,

Like each stroke of a well-trained brush,

Strives to expose,

To explain,

To tie one more knot

In a world of loose ends,

  3. Yes, artists CAN say MORE than a 1000 words in a single small painting. I have very close artists friends that this reblogged poem honors. Thank you!
