A Sense Of Eden





















Velveteen the touch,
Slithery as a snake,
Soft
Not
Ecstasy - pain.

Autumn leaves falling,
Colours of the wind,
Vivid
Yes
Silhouette – dim.

Desert winds blowing,
Sandpaper on skin,
Rough
Not
Courage - within.

Molten ice and fire,
Satin ribbons undulate,
Sated
Yes
Eternal – flame. 

(Artist: Gayatri Aditya

I saw the picture first and then read your poem. Your words reflect what my thoughts were!!
The picture is beautiful and startling! Your poem - as always - is lovely!

Thanks, Smriti.

Interestingly, I thought of the picture only after I wrote the poem and figured it was a perfect fit. I have a strong feeling though, that the artist's thoughts were entirely different. :-)

Koosie,

I loved the poem.

As an artist it doesn't mean that a viewer must get what I was saying,after all there were many stages to creating one work,manual and layouts.If a viewer returns after seeing a painting that can influence a thought,inspiration and the image lingers on if only for a moment,well thats the thrill you get as an artist.
