Auction

A Poem by Skye

You are not a finished piece to hang, 

framed and signed, upon a gallery wall - 

to sell yourself to the first patron

who admires your lines, 

and use of color.

Really clever metaphor and really shows your perspective. The form is very sweet and shows your emotions very well. I love the idea of this. Nice poem x

I love this! The metaphor is really smart. The only thing I am slightly confused about is the title. In an auction, its not the first person that buys whatever being sold.

I would like to think I am a tree,
Tall and strong, with great shade -
That neither needs to be sold or cut
but admired for words,
and sustainability.

this beautiful piece speaks of growth potential and opportunity intrinsic in an artist, i.e.: a poet, incidentally, poets should never, cannot be placed in a box; it speaks of many genres of writing potential, or flexibility in writing topics

Beautiful imagery use. We are not to settle, even with ourselves. Never are we perfect, each part of life gives us a new line, new color, new character, new story. But to settle and give ourselves to someone either unworthy or before we are truly ready is sealing a sad and half completed life.

Loved this.

Awesome, don't sell yourself short. Live your life, enjoy all that you find, keep growing and learning, this journey never ends. That is what I got from this. If that was not the intended meaning, I'm sorry but I like this a lot and what I feel it says. I like the brevity of it and the big message it contains. Great writing.
