The Artist

The Artist

A Poem by shallimarRose



Indeed he is an artist
though he has no paints or brush
he has never sketched a sunset
nor drawn the oceans rush
he's never carved a masterpiece
from clay, nor rock, nor ice
and yet his artwork can be seen
his work is quite precise
he does not play an instrument
he cannot sing a note
No, its not the art of acting
'tis the words the poet wrote....

There is a magnificent cadence and rhyme to this. It is not callow, it reads with the full force of a seasoned and exceedingly talented muse. The keystone to this maturity and talent level is in the brevity. Less is always more. On the surface 'simple' takes a special muse, anyone can go on and on with purple prose. Frost and Giovanni and Dickinson all knew this, all worked like this, as do you. Wonderful work....I would not change a syllable.

no he is not acting or singing..though only with few words..
coming fluently like a stream ,how they touch,how they hit
when ever they sound in the air you could hear like some tunes
never heard the like before,its magic his words ,everyone
just listen how he takes you far and high with few words
from him you fly..a man of words a poet or so,he is...

This was totally mesmerizing. I loved the entire poem. We carve what we cannot see yet we can feel it in our souls. This is an outstanding poem.

It sounds like the character in the poem is trying to justify that intelligence is an art in different forms.
