Animator

Pale flowers crowd a sheet

Sleeping, lifeless, but a dream

Each petal a promise

Each stem stupendous

Leaves that want to leap

As eyes wander with God’s regard

Palms pulsate and synapses synthesize

Chroma and contrast leap to the artist’s plan.

Hand grasping for this color and that

Sometimes one sometimes two

The eye now beams down

And pigment animates

 Aesthetic blessing

One of a kind

Union of art and artist

Complementary reflections

  1. The artist is maybe the most important part of the art I think

    I like the shape of this poem, Jade, and the way the artwork comes alive, is animated by your words. I like very effective alliteration in the lines:
    ‘Each petal a promise
    Each stem stupendous
    Leaves that want to leap’.

    Wow! I like how the spirit moves with the format and alignment you have chosen for the words. The first half is pulsating with movement
    Each petal a promise

    Each stem stupendous

    Leaves that want to leap

    There is a gradual ebbing after that – like a musical piece.

    Thanks, Jade!

    An artist who paints is impressive, like the jazz musician who sees the notes as images as he improvises–but for me it is the sculptor who ranks at the top, staring at a block of stone, and seeing the statue within, and releasing that form with his hands.

          When I finished writing it, I decided to center it and immediately thought it looked like a vase. The subconscious mind at work.

          p.s. I have a lot of colorings to choose from. I chose that one after seeing the poem, so it’s not that “woo-woo” twilight zone 😉

    A little jumpy and broken for me. But the idea was interesting. I’m not a big fan of centered poems — wrote a joke on them here

      Rob, I’m so glad you connect with this poem, it pretty much wrote itself and then provided the vase to contain it 🙂 I appreciate your kind comments.
