Artistree

Artistree

A Poem by Robert Trakofler

__Artistree__

 

Nobody wants to be seen

But many want to be heard

Clarity can be obscene

But you can, take my word

Many have scrawled before me

A chorus in silent dirge

Manuscript marked melodies

Implores of grace in infer

Not crafted in elegy

But solicit further stir

to your living… artistree

you cant pretend any longer to not be a figurative writer from the seventies/ where they looked for spacing and democracy like members of a jazz combo. It's like the three way lamp with the three way bulb you turn to the highest lumen/ it's unfair your use of language to mean age or a heart in fibrillation/. It's hard for me to unwind after poetry. What I mean is that, I don't act good in crowds. I take long walks but always end up where I started.....Artistry then is a paragon/ the laughing witch of Mississippi that holds our shoulders in half sleep. Wherever we move about, it always brings us back. Your poems are ballistic/ and i'm in love with them... dana

I agree my friend. My teachers were Hemingway, Kosinski, Salinger and Nevil Shute. The books of my youth. Made me wish to travel, learn and see. Powerful words and thoughts shared Robert.

The title is a clever play on words. Poetry is a many branched tree.

Dear BB, art in any form is a gift from the gods and is deserved of whatever praise it receives

The most worthy art is shared art, in poetry and music (even paintings). It's the artist-poet-novelist-musician who writes/performs what makes us smile, cry, dance and sometimes join in the art, write a poem or song. Humanity is better for it, especially the living, and you've expressed that brilliantly here.

Nice. It seems sometimes that the shorter the lines are, the harder it is to get the rhyme to not feel forced. I never felt that when reading this. And the meter, (I know sometimes can feel like the real work), was spot on. He shoots, he scores.

I think this a superb poem with a great positive meaning attached. "Artistree"? Witty! Beware of axes, my friend.

Art is Tree - Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? Listening is just as important as speaking.

Hi yes I agree miss enigma
Wow and your muse is artsy and word artistry. I guess poets like to be heard via their word. It's a sublime poem indeed. Kudos and best wishes,

Comes across a lot better for me now. On the other hand, others might have preferred your initial offering. What pleases one may put off others.
