Sounding Out P.

“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting with the gift of speech.” – Simonides

Pixelated images
Dance across the carpet,

Perhaps today
Will wish the world anew,

Preparing tomorrow
For adventures too few,

Prevised realism
In great years to come,

Precious postures
Sweep into daze ahead,

Playfully wishing
For fears to be shed,

Passion out play
Within strange forgiveness,

Poignant meanderings
Blessed to those who catch,

Prosperous thoughts
Formed, never to detach,

Photogenic images,
Words blended triumphantly,

Pleasantly,
Pleasingly,
Peacefully.

  1. Beautiful! As a non native speaker I always admire the “fluidity” of such graceful poems… the three last lines, three adverbs, are so perfect… I also love the vocabulary, and the stanzas:
    “Passion out play
    Within strange forgiveness,

    Poignant meanderings
    Blessed to those who catch,”
    Well, a very profound poem I enjoyed very much, as I always like your work. Thank you for sharing. Kind regards. Frédéric

  2. Like these lines a lot: “Prosperous thoughts ; Formed, never to detach,”. And the idea of “playfully wishing” is very intriguing. Good use of an adverb there.
