how do you paint a picture?
not on canvas
limited to two-dimensions
absorbed by sight
neglectful of other senses
how do you sculpt an image?
not of clay
limited to three-dimensions
devoured by sight alone
since touch is forbidden
how do you create a picture?
embodies every sense
sight, touch, smell, taste, sound
how do you breathe a image to life?
i use words
bound only by the limits of my imagination
imbued with every sense
seen, felt, smelt, tasted, and heard
one of the forms i've explored speaks to creating a picture. the left side of my brain insists upon interpreting this as a visual entity...describe color and actions. but i can't help but think a picture is more than what you see; it's infused with every sense so you could close your eyes, feel the tingle on your tongue, breath in the lusciousness, feel the texture--rough and silky--, hear the whisper in the air, and see yourself apart of the image.
i don't know...i guess i thought i'd dispel my left brains constraints through a senseless (insert silly chuckle here) poem.
