If you draw,
unleash that pencil and bring life to the page.
More of a painter, perhaps?
Then summon that stubborn blank canvas,
find that indolent brush,
and fill that white world with the eye's music.
But maybe it's song, not color,
that swirls in your imagination.
Become one with your instrument of choice,
flow with the pitches and rhythms,
and exhale the soul's voice.
Even gardeners and cooks,
laboring in the soil or near the flame,
can harvest the mind's wondrous magic:
to transform dirt into paradise,
to convert eggs into a feast.
Delve within and unearth the wings of creation.
Take flight in a remarkable sky,
as this poet has done
while carving his words.

Create (C) 2010 by Vincent Lowry

Kriss Perras (kriss-perras) | 12 comments This is pretty cool. I have just one thought, something I learned at Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center. Try taking out all the "the" "and" words and see how you can arrange the words. This technique has a prfound affect on the poem and its structure. You have to do it to feel the process though (that is if you have not tried this once already). Otherwise this is definitely on to something! Pretty cool stuff!
