Art in Many Forms

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”. —Pablo Picasso quote

Writing releases thoughts of mind and heart

Poetry captures feeling

Journaling reminds, records

Painting lets feelings flow

Dance brings release

Music infuses

Art inspires

My heart

Daily

Gathering in the town square

Summertime fun

Grand-daughter, her boyfriend and I enjoyed a fun night of music in the park and a Classic Car Show. Grand-daughter brought her ‘85 RX-7 to show off 🙂 and we got to listen to our favorite country music singer too. I love Summer!!

Pencil vs Poodle

Were you a Pencil or a Poodle

Skirt fan, back in the days of rockn’roll?

Dancing slow with The Diamonds

Strolling in a pencil skirt,

Or swing’n the poodle skirt

Jitterbugging with

Bill Haley in your

Saddle shoes,

When teens

Danced.

Full of lofty goals

I soar higher than the stars

Music in my soul

Catapulting me forward

Until I reach a million dreams

Tanka

(I was inspired to write this poem after listening to “A Million Dreams” Song from the movie “The Greatest Showman” and I added it to a paper collage piece I was working on that the song also inspired me to create😩)

Listen to the Lyrics

Some words on paper

Come alive and touch people

The alphabet will speak

A heartfelt message of truth

To those willing to hear

Sense or Nonsense?

I see the look of the musician,

I think he’s angry at the omission.

He finds it hard to comprehend

Overshadowing the note’s loose end

Causing a chirping like a flamingo

Creating a strange and quirky lingo.

Spoken badly by the blues singer,

Please don’t let this composition linger

Music and song need thought and time

Senses suffer in nonsense rhyme

Rhyme

( I found an online Poem Generator that I decided to try out today.  It had me type in nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc and then it generates what is supposed to be a poem! 🙂  haha.  However, I took what seemed to me to be complete nonsense and rewrote it to at least, perhaps, have some meaning. 🙂
Any thoughts?   What do you think?  Does it make any sense or is it just nonsense?
