A Painted Poem

“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.” Plutarch

Painted Poem 2004

The first poem I ever wrote was in the second grade and it was about puppies.  Since then I’ve written numerous poems.  I have no idea how many but it’s probably in the three digits by now.  Some have been lost, misplaced or tossed.  I even had a journal stolen by a boy.  (You know who you are, jErk)  nah, That was a joke. lol I was 15 and I’m beyond over it. Life happens and I know eventually each piece will end up exactly where it needs to be.

Sometimes I make painted poems like these.  Expressing an emotion using more than one medium.

This is a painted poem I created in 2004.

Painted Poem 2004
“A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.” Robert Frost

“No poems can please for long or live that are written by water drinkers.” Horace

“Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.” Edgar Allan Poe

“Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.” T. S. Eliot
